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 elliot.j.crowley@ed.ac.uk 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 a.storkey@ed.ac.uk, and applications can be made via the Informatics:ANC application portal.
