The Bristol Centre for Complexity Sciences (BCCS) is a new highly interdisciplinary centre for training and research funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Science Research Council. The mission of the BCCS is that of nurturing the next generation of scientists and engineers in the most challenging areas of the emerging science of Complexity. The BCCS is a major collaboration across 4 faculties within the University of Bristol; the Department of Computer Science is one of the main partners, contributing both theory and applications.
Beginning October 2007, the Doctoral Training Centre will fund 15 new PhDs in Complexity Science. Each PhD is of 4 years duration, with a high quality taught element in the first year. Stipends are available for the brightest and best graduates from throughout the UK & abroad (EPSRC eligibility rules require a demonstrable link with the UK, normally through residency). We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated students who want to take up the many challenges and open problems in Complexity Sciences. You will be expected to study and work in a highly interdisciplinary environment, interacting with leading scientists from the UK and abroad.
Open days will be taking place on 28th February and 25th April 2007.
