The University of Bristol, through its Centre for Communications Research (CCR), has been a world leader in this field for over 25 years. The Centre combines the strengths of the CCR with Bristol’s world-leading mathematics capability, its strengths in interactivity and the challenges in safety critical systems.
The Centre will produce a new type of PhD graduate: one who is intellectually leading, creative, mathematically rigorous and who understands the commercial implications of their work; people who are the future technical and business leaders in the sector.
The highly interdisciplinary Centre provides a four year fully funded postgraduate programme (including a taught element in the first year) leading to the award of a PhD. Graduates accepted on the course are members of a student cohort, working together with a group of academics from the Centre for Communications Research, School of Mathematics, Department of Computer Science and the Safety Systems Research Centre. Opportunities will be available to undertake research projects with industrial sponsors in a wide range of Communications applications and cutting edge research.Full funding covering living expenses and fees is available for graduates accepted on the programme who are UK citizens. EU citizens who have been resident in the UK for three years or more are also eligible for the full studentship. Fees only support is available for other EU citizens. Self-funded students are also welcome to apply.
