The School has announced a few PhD studentships and I am looking for some good students whose application I would be happy to support. Please contact me if interested. Some details are given below:
School is inviting applications for 6 full-time, three-year doctoral studentships for 2015/16 entry. Three of the studentships are funded by The George Daniels’ Educational Trust ; the other three are funded by the School.
The six studentships will be split equally across Computer Science (2 studentships), Mathematics (2 studentships), and Engineering (2 studentships).
What is offered
A doctoral studentship provides:
• An annual bursary (£16,000 in 2015/16);
• A full tuition fee waiver for UK and EU students. Applications are welcome from overseas applicants but the difference between overseas and UK fee must be covered by the applicant or by the supervisor/Research Centre (with prior agreement)
Successful applicants will be expected to provide 3 hours per week support for teaching in the School. Continuation of the studentship after the first year is subject to confirmation of satisfactory progress.
Applications are sought from exceptional UK, EU and international graduates and will be awarded on the basis of outstanding academic achievement and the potential to produce cutting edge-research.
• Applicants must hold at least a 2.1 honours degree or merit level Masters degree in a relevant subject (or international equivalent)
• Applicants whose first language is not English must have achieved at least 6.5 in IELTS or a recognised equivalent
• Applicants must not be currently registered as a doctoral student at City University London or any other academic institution
How to apply
Application deadline: 25th May 2015.
Prospective applicants are strongly advised to discuss their application in advance with a potential supervisor in the School in order to determine whether they can offer supervision in their chosen research area.
Applications must consist of the following:

• Two confidential references (one of which must be an academic reference)
The above documents should be compiled into a single document and submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 25th May 2015.
1. Once all the applications are collected, Computer Science, Mathematics and Engineering should short list 4 applicants each.
2. The shortlisting panel for all areas will be led by: Computer Science: Prof Jo Wood; Mathematics: Prof Andreas Fring; Engineering: Prof Andreas Kappos
3. STRs should liaise with the above to assist them in the process
4. There will be a School panel to finalise the selection of PhD students on Wed 3rd of June 2015.
