PhD Scholarship in Network Science and Data Science

last modified Dec 16, 2018 03:26 PM

A fully-funded PhD scholarship is available under the supervision of Dr. Yilun Shang at Computer and Information Sciences Department of Northumbria University, Newcastle, UK, on 'Complex network analysis and resilience in large-scale multi-layer networks'.

The goal of this project is to investigate and develop new data science approaches to model large-scale networks. Recent advances in network science have enabled researchers to understand the resilience of large-scale topological systems and develop algorithms to improve their robustness in the presence of different classes of failures and perturbations. This project aims to further enhance the understanding of large-scale complex systems and create a platform to translate fundamental research into real-world impact.

Deadline for applications: Friday 25 January 2019

Start Date: 1 October 2019

Funding: The studentship is available to Students Worldwide, and covers full fees and a full stipend, paid for three years at RCUK rates (for 2018/19, this is £14,777 pa)
