Higher-dimensional reeb space analysis
- Funded PhD project: Worldwide (International, UK and EU)
- Value: Funding covers the cost of fees and provides a maintenance matching the Research Council UK rate (£14,553 for 2017/18).
- Number of awards: Funding for this award is not guaranteed. This research project is in competition for funding with other projects and will be awarded on a competitive basis.
- Deadline: 30/03/2018
- Supervisors: Contact Dr Hamish Carr to discuss this project further informally.
As computational topology develops, new analytic tools help with comprehension first of scalar and vector data, later of bivariate data. While mathematical concepts are well-developed, computational tools lag behind, and a viable computation of the R3 -> R2 has only recently been defined. For time-varying data or for more complex data types, specific algorithms are yet to be developed, and this project will target these cases, working on algorithms for extraction, display and visualisation of Reeb Spaces in the R4 -> R2 and R4 -> R3 cases.
Applications are invited from candidates with a minimum of a UK upper second class honours degree (2:1), and/ or a Master's degree in a relevant subject. We also recognise relevant industrial and academic experience.
How to apply
Formal applications for research degree study should be made online through the university's website. Please state clearly in the research information section of your application, the name of the PhD you wish to apply for is 'Higher-dimensional reeb space analysis' as well as Dr Hamish Carr as your proposed supervisor. In the funding section, please state 'School of Computing Funded Studentships' as your sponsor.
If English is not your first language, you must provide evidence that you meet the University’s minimum English Language requirements.
We welcome scholarship applications from all suitably-qualified candidates, but UK black and minority ethnic (BME) researchers are currently under-represented in our Postgraduate Research community, and we would therefore particularly encourage applications from UK BME candidates. All scholarships will be awarded on the basis of merit.
