The University of Aston is delighted to offer a number of studentship awards for students for PhD students doing research on “variation theory and conceptual change” within the Computer Science Research Group at the School of Engineering and Applied Science. Scholars from all nations are welcome to apply. Up to seven best applicants will be granted the award which covers the monthly allowances. To apply, the application packet must be submitted due to 30 June 2015.
Applications are invited to apply for one of our seven three-year PhD studentships, supported by the School of Engineering and Applied Science, to be undertaken within the Computer Science Research Group at Aston University. The successful applicant will join the newly formed Aston Institute for Systems Analytics. This studentship is combined with a teaching assistant role. The successful candidate will be required to carry out up to seven hours per week of teaching support for a distance learning programme under the direction of the project supervisor; therefore the student must be capable of teaching on a specific module.
