Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.

PhD Type

Polymer resists are used as thin films in the manufacture of silicon chips. They are spin coated onto a silicon wafer and irradiated through a pattern in a mask.
  Accountable autonomy of software agents
  Prof W Vasconcelos, Dr N Oren
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many tasks once performed by humans are now carried out by autonomous artificial intelligence systems. An important aspect of such systems is their accountability, that is, how their decisions and behaviours can be recorded, scrutinised and, if necessary, revised.
  Complex Norm Synthesis via Deep Learning
  Dr N Oren, Prof W Vasconcelos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate how agents operating as part of a group should learn behaviours that benefit the group as a whole. These behaviours are commonly referred to as norms, and describe obligations, permissions and prohibitions on actions in specific contexts.
  Explainable Autonomous AI Systems
  Dr N Oren, Prof W Vasconcelos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate how the decisions made by an AI system operating as part of a group can be explained.
  Generating persuasive messages with controlled attributes for people with mental health conditions
  Dr C Lin, Prof E Reiter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

According to the national statistics, approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year. In England, 1 in 6 people report experiencing a common mental health problem (such as anxiety and depression) in any given week.
  Integrating structured knowledge with Machine Learning Representations
  Dr F Guerin, Dr C Lin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

he problem. Machine learning systems are effective at learning from scratch, but it is not clear how to reuse the knowledge they have learned for another purpose.
  Novel Approaches to Engaging Land Managers in Monitoring the Impact of Agri-Environment-Climate Schemes
  Dr K Prager, Prof S Redpath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Agri-environment-climate schemes (AECS) are a voluntary policy mechanism to incentivise and compensate farmers for undertaking environmental measures as part of their land management.
  SEESALT: Novel ways to ’SEE’ coastal ’SALT’ marshes using low-cost drones and sensors
  Dr D Green, Dr D Mauquoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saltmarshes are found extensively along low wave energy coastlines resulting from fine sediment accumulation and vegetation establishment.
  Sustaining partnership approaches – evaluating effectiveness, health and longevity of agri-environmental collaboratives
