PhD Studetnship Safe Nanotechnology-enabled AI at University of Southampton

A new opening PhD position in computer science is available at University of Southampton, UK. The initial contract for this position is 5 years. Applications are welcome before August 31, 2019.

The Electronic Materials and Devices Research Group at the University of Southampton is a dynamic interdisciplinary team delivering novel solutions for advanced sensory systems, energy technologies and unconventional computing architectures. Our group encompasses diverse expertise ranging from materials process development to electronic devices, circuits and systems. This knowledge combined with our state-of-art facilities and strong collaborations with industry enables us to offer unique solutions to real-world problems.

Our vision is to disrupt current ways of thinking, transforming our society through emerging nanotechnologies, such as: nano/bio-sensors, safe and efficient nano-batteries and novel Hardware for AI. To realise this vision, we are seeking exceptional candidates to join our team, interested in devoting their passion for addressing some of the challenges we have identified.

This particular studentship will take a broad view of the entire field of AI from physical implementation all the way to behaving and even multi-agent systems (multiple AI systems interacting with each other). The factors contributing to loss of trust in AI systems (the uncertainty factors) will be investigated. The project will not stop at current best practice but investigate the projected developments that are expected to revolutionise the field over the next decade or more and reveal how they will contribute to the issue of trust in AI. We welcome applications from candidates with a background in computation, electronics, machine learning and/or mathematics.

We welcome applications from future experts who have, or expect to shortly have, a very good undergraduate degree (at least a UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent), in computer science, electronics, or other closely related subject such as mathematics or physics.

:applications should be received no later than 31 August 2019 for standard admissions, but later applications may be considered depending on the funds remaining in place.

We accept applications from those who wish to receive a funded scholarship, those who already have a funded scholarship from another source, or self-funded applicants (proof of funds will be required).

Funding: full tuition plus, for UK students, an enhanced stipend of 18,000 tax-free per annum for up to 3.5 years.

Candidates should apply as soon as possible to be considered for a place for September 2019 entry. All shortlisted applicants will be invited for interview at the University of Southampton. Note that if, due to your personal circumstances, you are unable to attend for interview in person, please get in touch.

Applications should be made online here selecting "PhD ORC (Full time)" as the programme. Please enter Electronic Materials and Devices/Safe nanotechnology-enabled AI under the Topic or Field of Research.
