PhD on self-supervised learning for satellite images

We are looking for a highly motivated and creative student to start a fully-funded PhD in October 2022 on self-supervised learning for satellite imagery, as part of the SENSE CDT. This is a great opportunity to both develop machine learning algorithms, and apply them to the real-world problems of crop monitoring and glacier surge detection. More details of the project are available here.

Funding is awarded through a number of SENSE studentships. These are available for both UK and international students, although there are fewer of the latter.

If you are interested, please email your CV to with the title [Prospective Student - SENSE]. To formally apply, click here. Note that you need to apply via a University of Leeds portal, even though you will be based at the University of Edinburgh. The application deadline is 9th January 2022.

PhD Studentships - Informatics

We generally have potential for funded PhD student places in all areas covered by the group’s research. Enquiries can also be made to, and applications can be made via the Informatics:ANC application portal.
