PhD Studentship in When Machine Learning Meets Big Data in Wireless Communications
Recent several decades have witnessed the exponential growth in commercial data services, which lead to step in the so-called big data era. The pervasive increasing data traffic present both the imminent challenges and new opportunities to all aspects of wireless system design, such as efficient wireless caching, drone base station deployment and adaptive nonorthogonal multiple access design. Machine learning, as one of the most promising artificial intelligence tools, has been invoked in many areas both in the academia and industry. Nevertheless, the application of machine learning in wireless communication scenarios is still in its infancy, which motivates to develop this phD project. The aim of this phD project is to use social media data to predict the requirements of mobile users for improving the performance of wireless networks.
All applicants should hold a masters level degree at first /distinction level in Computer Science or Electronic Engineering (or a related discipline). Applicants should have a good knowledge of English and ability to express themselves clearly in both speech and writing. The successful candidate must be strongly motivated for doctoral studies, must have demonstrated the ability to work independently and to perform critical analysis.
Candidates are asked to possess fundamental knowledge and skills in two or more of the following areas:
Excellent background in communication theory and signal processing algorithms. Good knowledge of emerging 5G and IoT techniques, such as NOMA, wireless caching and mobile computing, UAV, V2X, etc.
Prior experience/education in both theory and practice of machine learning.
Hands on experience using one of the following deep learning libraries: Tensorflow, PyTorch, Theano or similar.
Good coding skills. (Python and C++ are considered a plus).
Each year the ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science may award up to six (6) scholarships, known as the International Postgraduate Excellence Scholarship.
The Scholarship is available for international students who have applied for admission to a Graduate Diploma or a Masters Postgraduate Coursework program offered by the College. The Scholarship is highly competitive and based on academic merit.

Will commence a Graduate Diploma or Masters by coursework program within the College for the first time.
A Selection Committee will be appointed and will make a recommendation for this Scholarship based on academic merit, and the program of study which the applicants have applied for. Consideration may also be given to any other factors which the Selection Committee considers to be appropriate and in line with the College’s strategic direction and priorities.
The Department of Chemical Engineering has up to 10 fully-funded scholarships available for outstanding PhD applicants each year. If you would like to be considered for a scholarship, you are expected to have obtained (or be heading for) a First Class Honours degree at Master’s level (or equivalent) in chemical engineering, another branch of engineering or a related science.
The standard period of the scholarship is 42 months. The scholarships are open to all applicants regardless of their fee status, and cover both tuition fees and an annual tax-free contribution to maintenance costs of £16,553.
How to apply
In order to be considered for the Chemical PhD Scholarships, you will need to submit an application for admission through the online admissions system. The Progamme is Chemical Engineering Research – Full Time. Your application form must include:
Full transcripts of your university studies to date
A personal statement to support your application, which should outline your research interest and experience
The contact details of 2 referees, at least one of whom must be an academic referee (for example your project supervisor or personal tutor). You will be asked to give the e-mail addresses of the referees, which will trigger reference requests directly to the referees. Please do not upload reference letters, as the references must come directly from the referees. References are confidential between the referee and the College. Please note that the e-mail addresses must be personal institutional addresses (university or company e-mail addresses) rather than webmail addresses, as these are not acceptable.
The scholarships are very competitive and you should demonstrate an outstanding academic record and research skills. Applications will be considered by an academic selection panel, which meets twice a year. The application timeline is as follows:
Application deadline: 31 October for entry in October of the following year
The shortlisting panel will meet in late November and interviews will be held in late November or early December
Successful candidates will be sent a list of available projects and supervisors within a week of the last interview and we will endeavour to allocate projects by the end of December
The University constantly seeks students of the highest quality, and, in recognition of the important investment that overseas students are making in their education, we are pleased to offer scholarships to certain applicants!
There are a few scholarship schemes at the University of Southern Denmark. The largest one is the Danish Government Scholarship – supported by the Ministry of Higher Education and Science.
Through this scheme the Faculty of Engineering offers scholarships to highly qualified students enrolled in the two-year master degree study programmes in engineering:
The Special Scholarship Program (SSP) was established in 2003 in order to support the advanced research of the university by enlisting the help of highly capable students especially students from foreign countries. Every year in April and October, the university enrolls selected doctoral students for specific research projects. The students pursue the doctoral course in English (excl. Japanese students) while at the same time assisting their host professor as a research assistant (RA). Through this program KUT wishes to expand and deepen international ties with academic and educational institutions all over the world.
PROGRAM OF STUDY
Doctoral Program (3 years)
Department of Engineering, Graduate School of Engineering
MEDIUM OF STUDY
NUMBER OF STUDENTS TO BE ADMITTED
No more than 3 SSP students can be enrolled concurrently for each project leader. See the SSP project list for details of which projects currently have places available for SSP students.
*The term will be extended for increments of one year up to a total of three years, unless the university terminates the SSP student status for any of the reasons stated in paragraph 13 below, Termination of SSP Student Status.
The SSP student must work 50 hours per month for a specific research project at the university.
The SSP student must report his/her study and research achievements to the dean of the Graduate School of Engineering at the end of each semester. The submitted report will be evaluated by the dean of the Graduate School of Engineering.

Multiple PhD Studentships: Application of Graphics and computational fabrication techniques for novel 3D printed acoustic devices (2018)
Multiple PhD studentships in computational fabrication and graphics are available in the Interact Lab of the University of Sussex.
Type of award
Multiple PhD studentships in computational fabrication and graphics are available in the Interact Lab of the University of Sussex from October 2018. The project will be supervised by Sriram Subramanian (https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=CO9UQcsAAAAJ&hl=en).
Our group is interested in exploring the use of 3D printed structures to shape and sculpt sound input sound fields. These 3D printed structures are often called metamaterials and can be used to create acoustic lenses and mirrors. Using these structures, we can create novel haptic devices, speakers and many new interactive experiences.
This project will involve using computer graphics techniques to model and analyse these structures to make structures that are efficient and effective in manipulating input sound fields. This project will give you the opportunity to collaborate in a novel field of cutting edge research in a highly applied and fast moving area. The successful candidate will engage with many ongoing research collaborators in UK, Denmark, Sweden and USA. In addition to undertaking high quality research and publishing in top graphics and HCI conferences/ journals, the group also creates significant impact by developing technology that is integrated into different industry products.
