Description: Applicants must be from UK/EU: The scholarship covers standard living expenses and tuition fees for UK/EU students.

We invite applications for 3.5-year PhD positions in machine learning and computer vision at the University of Bath.

The prospective PhD student will work with Dr. Kwang In Kim designing new machine learning algorithms to face challenges in computer vision and graphics applications.

Our current research focuses on large-scale/multimodal learning algorithms for vision applications, e.g., organizing media collections into semantically meaningful representations, and using these to allow easier search, exploration, editing, and content creation.

The successful candidates will join the Visual Computing Group at University of Bath’s Computer Science Department, a vibrant research team with six academics and a group of PhD students and post-doctoral researchers.

Application deadline: 1 May 2017.
Anticipated start date: 2 October 2017.

Requirements:
Applicants should have a first class in Mathematics, Physics, Statistics, Computer Science, or closely related field. Applicants need to have a strong background in mathematics and high proficiency in Matlab (or any other software development environment). Having experienced with an MSc project in machine learning or vision is a plus but is not required.

Application Instructions: Applicants are invited to send their CV and academic transcripts to Dr Kwang In Kim (k.kim@bath.ac.uk) so that he can help them preparing the formal application. Please include `[PhD]’ in the subject line.

If they meet the minimum criteria, they will be asked to submit a formal application via the Postgraduate Admissions Portal.
