Subject: [geovis] funded PhD positions at city University London

Dear all,

I would like to share the following PhD positions announcement from
our school at City University London.

Best regards,

I am delighted to announce that the School of Mathematics, Computer
science and Engineering 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
Mathematics (2 studentships), and Engineering (2 studentships).

What is offered

A doctoral studentship provides:
• An annual bursary (Ł16,000 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)

least 6.5 in IELTS or a recognised equivalent
