Subject: Studentships for PhD study in Informatics@Edinburgh
Date: Sun, 18 Dec 2005 22:10:24 -0000

Studentships for PhD study in
the School of Informatics at
the University of Edinburgh
- --------------------------

FORTY research studentships are available for:

* UK students
* EU students
* students worldwide

Many of these are full studentships, paying your tuition fees and a
stipend of 12300 pounds to cover living expenses in your first year,
rising in second and third years. The rest pay your fees and/or a
contribution of 6150 pounds per year towards living expenses. Payment
of fees for non-EU students is subject to successful competition for
an Overseas Research Student award. PhD students are encouraged to make
contributions to teaching, for example by leading tutorial groups, and
for this you can expect to earn an additional 500-1000 pounds per year.

Informatics is the study of information and computation, in both
natural and engineered systems. It comprises a vast range of
scientific and engineering endeavour and has enormous economic and
social impact.

Edinburgh University's School of Informatics brings together the former
Departments of Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Science and Computer
Science, together with the Artificial Intelligence Applications
Institute. The School possesses a combination of breadth and
strength unparallelled elsewhere in the UK and competitive world-wide;
as an intellectual endeavour it is strikingly original.

The School is the only university grouping in the UK to have
achieved the top 5*A rating in Computer Science in the UK government's
2001 Research Assessment Exercise round, and it is the UK's biggest
research group in this area. We currently have around 250 students
studying for PhD, and around 150 for MSc.

PhD study
- --------

PhD study is carried out within one of our six research Institutes:

      ANC: Institute for Adaptive and Neural Computation
      CISA: Centre for Intelligent Systems and their Applications
      ICCS: Institute for Communicating and Collaborative Systems
      ICSA: Institute for Computing Systems Architecture
      IPAB: Institute of Perception, Action and Behaviour
      LFCS: Laboratory for Foundations of Computer Science

ANC fosters the study of adaptive processes in both artificial and
biological systems; two themes are the study of artificial learning
systems and the analysis and modelling of brain processes. CISA
undertakes basic and applied research and development in knowledge
representation and reasoning. Through its applications institute AIAI,
it works with others to deploy the technologies associated with this
research. ICCS pursues basic research into the nature of
communication among humans and between humans and machines, using
text, speech and graphics, and the design of interactive dialogue
systems, using computational and algorithmic approaches.

ICSA seeks development of a better understanding of systems
components, both hardware and software, and their integration and
interaction; this involves not only improving their raw performance
and cost-effectiveness, but also making them more connectable and
interoperable, more reliable, more usable and more applicable. The
interests of IPAB are how to link computational perception,
representation, transformation and generation processes to external
worlds---whether real or virtual. The mission of LFCS is to achieve a
foundational understanding of problems and issues arising in
computation and communication through the development of appropriate
and applicable formal models and mathematical theories.
