Funded research studentships available in St Andrews

We are looking for world-class students to come and work with us. This is open to individuals of any nationality, not just UK or EU citizens. I’m especially interested in people wanting to work on programming languages, but I’d welcome inquiries in any research areas that align with mine.

Funded PhD Research Studentships

University of St Andrews – School of Computer Science

The School of Computer Science at the University of St Andrews has funding for students to undertake PhD research in any of the general research areas in the school:

We are looking for highly motivated research students with an interest in these exciting research areas. Our only requirements are that the proposed research would be good, we have staff to supervise it, and that you would be good at doing it. We have up to 6 funded studentships available for students interested in working towards a PhD. The studentships offers costs of fees and an annual tax-free maintenance stipend of about £13,590 per year for 3.5 years. Exceptionally well qualified and able students may be awarded an enhanced stipend of an additional £2,000 per year. Students should normally have or expect at least an upper-2nd class Honours degree or Masters degree in Computer Science or a related discipline.

For further information on how to apply, see our postgraduate web pages (http://www.cs.st-andrews.ac.uk/prospective-pg). The closing date for applications is March 1st 2012 and we will make decisions on studentship allocation by May 1st 2012. (Applications after March 1st may be considered, at our discretion.) Informal enquiries can be directed to pg-admin-cs@st-andrews.ac.uk or to potential supervisors.
