    With respect to this email list I would like to
    encourage applications from computing PhD students in intelligent systems
    (e.g. neural networks, natural language engineering, hybrid systems,
    cognitive neuroscience, neuro/fuzzy systems, machine learning).

    General application text for all areas of interest below

    Phd & MPhil Opportunities in
    Computing, Engineering & Technology

    The School of Computing, Engineering & Technology at the University of
    Sunderland is seeking high quality, motivated applicants wishing to gain a PhD
    or MPhil in the disciplines of Computing, Mathematical Sciences, Engineering and

    Technology. The school has a strong and growing research profile with 6 EPSRC
    and more than 10 EU-funded projects and a vibrant community of over 100
    researchers. The School is well-resourced and offers excellent facilities with
    much state-of the art computing equipment and not only offers high quality
    postgraduate but also undergraduate programmes accredited by professional

    We look for applications in both computing and mathematics as well as general

    The main research groups in computing & mathematics are:

    intelligent systems (major strengths in neural networks, genetic
    algorithms, hybrid·systems and natural language engineering: Professor Stefan
    Wermter - +44 191 5153279);

    human computer systems (includes themes such as multimedia, computer-aided
    learning, computing for the disabled and human computer interaction evaluation
    methodologies: Professor Gilbert Cockton - +44
    191 5153394);

    software engineering (focussed on practical areas especially software
    testing·and the organisational·risks of implementing information systems,
    methodologies and solutions for industry: Professor Helen Edwards +44 191 5152786 or Professor Barrie Thompson +44 191 5152769);

    electronic commerce (encompasses the development and promotion of standards in
    this·dynamic area with a special interest in the area of electronic
    procurement: Kevin Ginty - or Albert Bokma +44 191 5153233);

    decision support systems (covers a diverse range of activities·in statistics &
    mathematics at the boundary of·Computer Science and Statistics and Operational
    Professor Eric Fletcher +44 191 5152822
    or Professor Alfredo Moscardini +44 191
