The School of Computing and IT is committed to extending its strength in established research areas by award of two fully-funded, three-year, full-time doctoral research studentships, available to both home and overseas students on a competitive basis.
The School has vibrant research programmes in pervasive and mobile computing, centred around location based services and wireless sensor networks, games and media computing and statistical cybermetrics. In addition to funded research projects in these areas, we also undertake a variety of technology transfer activities with regional companies.
Studentships may be awarded against research proposals in any of the following areas:
* Location based services, particularly applied to learning and culture.
* Mobile information systems.
* Pervasive sensing networks.
* Electronic, Mobile or Games Learning.
* Artificial intelligence in computer games.
* Home and health informatics.
Candidates should hold a good honours or masters degree from a recognised institution in a relevant subject (Candidates who expect to complete their studies for qualifying awards this academic year are welcome to apply).
Potential candidates should contact Helen Williams (h.williams[ at ]wlv.ac.uk , +44 (0)1902 321421) for an Expression of Interest form, which should be returned by 31 March 2008. After an initial selection, continuing candidates will be contacted by a member of the school’s staff, who will support the development of a research proposal, to be presented as part of the final selection, which will occur on 16 April 2008. Candidates must be available at the University on that day to present their proposal in person.
