PhD Fellowships - Psychology Department

Title: Four PhD Fellowships

Project 1. Two in Statistical Analysis of Longitudinal Data - Professor Dieter Wolke

Project 2. Development of the Sense of Commitment (Developmental Psychology) - Dr John Michael

Project 3. Psychology of Belief, Religion, Science and Morality - Dr Jesse Preston

Value: These Fellowships will be available for students wishing to start a PhD in October 2017 (possibly July 2017 for one of the two linked to Professor Wolke's EU project) and pay academic fees at the Home/EU rate and maintenance grant in line with the UK Research Council standard maintenance grant (for 2016/17, the fee was £4,052 and the maintenance grant was £14,057 although these will increase slightly for 2017/18). These awards are specifically for projects supervised by Professor Dieter Wolke (two awards available), Dr John Michael, and Dr Jesse Preston.

Fellowship holders (excluding one of the two supervised by Professor Wolke) teach up to a maximum of 130-140 hours per year within the Department, with full training and support provided.

Applications should be made through the Graduate School online form: warwick.ac.uk/pgapply

Please specify in the finance and funding section on the form that you wish to be considered for a Departmental PhD Fellowship and make it clear which of the three projects you are applying for. Please provide a short document (1-2 pages) detailing why you are a suitable candidate for studying your choice of project – for example, your qualifications, interests, and relevant experience.

Deadlines: Applications should be submitted by the new extended dates as follows:

Project 1. - Monday 17th April 2017

Projects 2. & 3. - Friday 31st March 2017

Further details about the Department and how to apply can be found at: http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/psych/. If you have further questions, email the project supervisor directly. If you have a general question about the application process, email the postgraduate admissions tutor (psychpg-admissions@warwick.ac.uk).

PhD Studentship - School of Engineering

Title: Thermal Energy Research Accelerator (T-ERA)

Value: This 3.5 year studentship covers full tuition fees at the UK/EU rate (£4,195 - 2017-2018) and an annual stipend at the standard RCUK rate (£14,553 - 2017-2018).

Deadline: The closing date for applications is 28 July 2017.

Project: T-ERA (Thermal Energy Research Accelerator) has funded major new equipment purchase plus laboratory and office refurbishment for the Sustainable Thermal Energy Technologies (STET) team in the School of Engineering. The demand for heating in the UK accounts for 47% of UK energy use (25% of CO2 emissions) and the work of STET and T-ERA aims to reduce this dramatically. We have a wide range of topics available for the right candidate who is enthusiastic about the energy saving applications and the practical engineering required to make them possible.

Further information on eligibility and how to apply can be found on the link provided.

PhD Studentship - Department of Statistics

Title: EPSRC and Tata Steel - Industrial Cooperative Awards in Science & Technology (ICASE)

Project Area: Statistical Machine Learning with Applications in Industrial Processes

Value: This 4 year studentship will cover full tuition fees at the Home rate (£4,195 - 2017/2018) and will offer an annual stipend at the standard RCUK rate (£14,553 - 2017/2018). (EU students may be eligible for a fees-only award - no maintenance grant). The studentship should start in October 2017.

Deadline: Please see the application procedure on the attached link.

Project Details: This studentship offers a unique opportunity for a student to work on developing novel statistical machine learning methods for analysing large-scale data with applications in engineering. This project is motivated by the need for building predictive models to understand steel manufacturing processes. An integrated component of this project is to refine the developed machine learning models to futher accommodate the nature of manufacture and varying levels of uncertainty associated with data collection process.

Details on eligibility, how to apply and further detailed information on the project can be found on the attached link.

PhD Studentship - School of Engineering

Title: PhD Scholarship : Discovery of New Materials for Rechargeable Batteries

Value: This 3 year studentship will cover full tuition fees at the Home / EU rate and an annual stipend of £14,553. (Overseas candidates are welcome to apply but you need to cover the difference in fees between home and overseas candidates).

Deadline: Open subject to the position being filled.

Project: The aim of this PhD studentship is to exploit the research area of new materials for rechargeable batteries. To tackle the problem associated with energy and climate change when more and more renewable energy is integrated to the existing energy generation system. Due to the intermittence nature of some renewable energy sources such as wind, solar and wave, it is desired to have an efficient and economically viable energy storage system. Rechargeable batteries are efficient devices for renewable energy storage.

PhD Studentship - School of Life Sciences

Title: Understanding and mitigating against the causes of yield decline in pea

Value: This four year studentship is BBSRC funded and will cover full tuition fees at the Home/EU rate and an annual stipend of at least £14,296 (current RCUK 2016/2017 rate) and consumables.

Deadline: Applications should be submitted by 31st March 2017.

Project: The project is a collaboration between the University of Warwick and the Processors and Growers Research Organisation (PGRO). The successful candidate with join the MIBTP programme, which includes skills training in the first year.

PhD Studentship - School of Engineering

Title: Mathematical modelling for clinical outcome prediction in kidney transplantation

Value: This three year studentship will cover full tuition fees (Home/EU students only) and an annual stipend of £14,656* (*estimated over 3 years). International candidates are welcome to apply, but will have to seek alternative funding sources.

Deadline: Open (flexible start date)

Project: This is a joint venture between the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick and the Kidney Transplantation Unit at the University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire. The project aims to apply dynamic systems approaches, based on modern machine learning algorithms, for the prediction of acute kidney rejection and chronic graft loss after kidney transplantation in patients with end stage renal failure. We would like to use mathematical modelling to identify the key factors associated with significant risk of kidney rejection and loss. The project will provide a unique opportunity for the PhD student to engage with the specialists from distinct research areas and gain working experience in highly cross-disciplinary environment. We are well-established team with joint publications, conference trips, research grants, and we meet on regular basis to exchange our research ideas and progress.
