PhD Studentship in Automated University Time Tabling at Aston University in UK

Applications are invited for a three year Postgraduate Research studentship, to be undertaken within the Mathematics & Computer Science Research Groups at Aston University. Overseas applicants are eligible to apply for this studentship.



This studentship includes a fee bursary to cover the home/EU fees rate plus a maintenance allowance of £14,296 for the 2016/17 academic year.

Overseas Applicants:

- Applicants from outside the EU may apply for this studentship but will need to pay the difference between the ‘Home/EU’ and ‘Overseas’ tuition fees; currently, this is estimated to be £11,729 in the 2016/17 academic year.
- As part of the application, you will be required to confirm that you have applied for, or, secured this additional funding.

Eligibility: The following criteria must be met in order for applicants to be eligible for this studentship:

- The successful applicant should have a first or upper second class honors degree or equivalent qualification in a Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics based subject, involving Computing and some Mathematics. Strong coding skills and experience in an appropriate object-oriented language (C++, C#, or Java preferred), are essential to this role. It would also be advantageous to have experience in the presentation of complex analyses to untrained users, software version control systems, knowledge of object-oriented design and implementation, along with an understanding of the full software development and product lifecycle.

- An understanding of algorithm design (although the core algorithm will be provided), and good inter-personal skills to work within Aston University and liaise with academics, students and administrative staff, are highly desirable.

- Non-native speakers of English are normally required to satisfy the following minimum English language requirements:

- TOEFL IBT: 93 (23 in Writing, 19 in Speaking, 18 in Reading and 19 in Listening)
- IELTS: 6.5 (6.0 in Writing Speaking, Reading, and Listening).

- A copy of their current CV
- Transcripts of degrees and copies of certificates
- Two academic references from their most recent academic institution, or details of two referees that you are happy for us to contact. If arranging your own references, please provide your referees with this Reference Form
- If English is not their first language, your IELTS or TOEFL score (or test date if you have yet to sit the examinations)
- Details of how they intend to fund their research; details of our course fees can be found
