Engineering Doctorate (EngD) Positions in collaboration with the world-leading local Semiconductor Design Industry

Our new EngD Centre in Systems invites applications for EngD researchers who would like to advance the state of the art in Microelectronic Design and Verification in collaboration with world-leading local semiconductor design companies such as Infineon Technologies (UK) Ltd and Broadcom Corporation, as well as many smaller world-class start-up companies in the area. Research at the EngD Centre is devoted to Systems Engineering with a focus on Managing Systems for Enhanced Performance. The EngD programme starts in October 2006. This is an exciting new opportunity to conduct leading-edge research in an industrial environment.

Candidates should have a minimum of an Upper Second (2:1) class honours degree (or equivalent) in Computer Science or a related subject, ideally with some industrial experience, and should be able to demonstrate leadership potential.

Tax-free EPSRC stipends are available for successful candidates, enhanced by a minimum top up of £3,000 from the sponsoring company. Standard EPSRC studentship eligibility applies. Non-eligible international students are welcome to apply, but must be able to find alternative funding, especially to cover the programme fees.
