Data Science Research Group

Doctoral study

The group welcomes applications for doctoral study. First, browse these web pages to discover what research areas are covered by the staff here and to identify possible supervisor(s). Second, email the person you identify as likely to be the most suitable supervisor for you, given your interests. Third, if possible, arrange to visit the University to meet relevant people. Fourth, submit a formal application.

Each doctoral student usually has a main supervisor, a second supervisor, and in addition a thesis committee consisting of two other members of faculty. See the Informatics doctoral degrees pages for further information and details of how to apply.

We have a close working relationship with researchers in the Natural Language Technology Group at the University of Brighton, located only two miles down the road, and regularly attend each other's research seminars.
