Scholarships in Computer Science 

This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious individual to work on a truly multidisciplinary project in collaboration with industry. Applications are invited from suitably qualified graduates for fully funded 4-year PhD studentships in the interdisciplinary area of Computer Science (Artificial Intelligence) and Sustainable Chemistry.

The candidate should:

 Possess a minimum of an upper second class honours degree from an undergraduate course in Computing Science, Artificial Intelligence, Mathematics or other relevant science or engineering subject and preferably a distinction level Masters degree in a related subject. Equivalent experience will also be considered. 

  • Have a strong interest in Chemistry (an A-level in Chemistry would be an advantage)
  • Have excellent analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Be able to work independently as well as a part of a team
  • Have good interpersonal and communication skills

We are particularly looking for applicants who are motivated, enthusiastic and interested to develop multidisciplinary projects cutting across a range of research areas including Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, Data Science (Machine Learning), Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Pure and Applied Computational Methods and Biosciences / Synthetic Biology.
