  • Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
    Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

This project is to develop methods and algorithms for multivariate data modelling and predictive analysis. The candidate model types and methods used can be within the range of the state-of-the-art in general and generalised regression, linear and nonlinear dynamic modelling, system identification, and statistical learning (e.g. machine learning), based on which to adapt and develop new effective methods for the analysis of a class of temporal and spatio-temporal ecosystems data e.g. cod diet data and relative food web dynamic data in sub-Arctic ecosystems of the Barents Sea (BS).

Prospective candidates with background in Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics, Biomedical and Bioengineering, Physics and related disciplines, with good academic performance records in their undergraduate/postgraduate studies, are encouraged and invited to apply for and get involved in an appropriate project.

Funding Notes
