Research Opportunities

Able candidates are sought to undertake an MSc in Advanced Methods in Computer Science, or Msc in Intelligent Imaging Systems.

Applications are invited from students wishing to pursue research in computer vision, learning and visually augmented smart content leading to a Ph.D in Computer Science. Candidates should have a good first degree in an appropriate subject such as computer science, mathematics, physics or engineering provided they have sufficient experience in computing. Good graduates in philosophy or psychology will also be considered, provided they have adequate mathematical aptitude and computing skills.

A number of project-based research positions may be available. Please see our research pages.

About student funding

Suitably qualified eligible candidates will be nominated for EPSRC, departmental or college studentships.
