Applications are invited from self-funded full time applicants for a PhD project in digital forensics. The project will define and evaluate process and procedures for digital forensics triage – which will seek to enhance and speed up digital forensic investigations whilst at the same time maintain evidential integrity and ensure comprehensive digital investigations take place.
This project is suitable for students with a first class or upper second class (minimum 2.1) honours degree (in a related discipline) from a Higher Education Institution in the UK or an acceptable international equivalent qualification. The University of Sunderland is an eligible institution for U.S. (Federal School Code: G35073) and Canadian (EI Code: PUFL) Student Finance Programmes. All international students studying at postgraduate level are awarded a £1,500 scholarship in each year of study. You do not have to apply for this scholarship; it is automatically applied to reduce your total annual tuition fee.
