The School of Computer Science at the University of St Andrews has around eight fully-funded PhD positions available. I’d welcome applicants interested in sensor networks, complex systems, and data science.
We welcome students from a wide range of countries, our only major requirements being that you’re excited by the idea of research and are able to conduct a complex programme within a small, friendly, and supportive environment.
In my case, I’m interested in hearing from potential students with interests in the following areas:
- Sensor networks, especially deploying sensors into the environment;
- Complex system modelling, trying to model phenomena that operate on a range of scales; and
- Data science, particularly for how we collect, categorise, and work with large scientific datasets.
An early conversation by skype or email could be followed by a formal application, the details of which are available here.
