2 funded joint PhD studentships in Statistical Science at University College London, UK and A*STAR, Singapore

---
Duration of studentships: 3.5 years
Stipend: £15,590 per annum in year 1
Closing date: Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the studentships are filled or until final deadline of 31st July 2013 is reached.

Applications are invited for two PhD funding opportunities offered jointly by the Faculty of Mathematical and Physical Sciences, UCL and the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), Singapore. The studentships will commence in September 2013 and are based both at A*STAR and the UCL Department of Statistical Science.

The studentships will be 3.5 years in duration, with year 1 spent at UCL, years 2 and 3 at A*STAR and a final writing-up period of 6 months at UCL. The awards cover tuition fees plus a maintenance stipend
(£15,590 pro rata in years 1 and 4; during years 2 and 3 the student will receive a full stipend direct from A*STAR).

These studentships may only be awarded to applicants liable to pay tuition fees at the UK/EU rate (i.e. they cannot be used to part-cover overseas tuition fees).

The two studentships are on:
1. Spatial models, statistical machine learning, and cognitive vision for histopathological data (UCL Supervisor: Dr James Nelson).
2. New statistical inverse methods for multispectral photoacoustic imaging (UCL Supervisor: Dr Jinghao Xue).
