Doctoral Training in Cloud Computing for Big Data

This new multi-million pound initiative will train the next generation of experts in the analysis of "big data" using advanced statistical methodologies and the latest cloud computing technologies, addressing an acute worldwide skills shortage.

Cloud computing provides vast computing resources on-demand. It has become important due to the growth of "big data": the large, complex, datasets now being created in almost all fields of activity, from healthcare to e-commerce. The full potential of cloud computing for extracting knowledge from big data has however rarely been achieved outside a few large companies due to a severe shortage of skilled people. The Newcastle University CDT will address this by producing the multi-disciplinary experts in the statistics and computing science required to extract knowledge from big data.

Fully-funded four-year PhD studentships are available for UK and EU students. The stipend amount is £14,553.

Applications are open until 6th September, with interviews taking place on 13th September 2018.

We are recruiting students from both Computer Science and Mathematics/Statistics backgrounds and providing an intensive course of interdisciplinary training during Year 1 of the four year PhD programme. All students associated with the CDT will be located together in brand new purpose-built accommodation within Newcastle's new Science Central district. This building will provide state-of-the-art training and Cloud Computing Facilities in an environment which mixes academics, researchers and industry technologists.
