PhD studentship on "Drone Detect and Desist" (EPSRC CDT in Distributed Algorithms)

One 4-year joint PhD position at the University of Liverpool, UK. (UK/EU applicants only)

Research topic: The project will be aimed at the development of accurate, robust methods for the detection and identification of drones (small uninhabited air vehicles, UAVs) in and around secure areas, such as airports and other sensitive sites. The PhD will benefit from assistance from the industrial partner (Vision4ce) who are active in this market. Vision4ce are keen to develop energy efficient methods and hardware implementations for long duration monitoring and surveillance systems.

This project is part of the EPSRC Funded CDT in "Distributed Algorithms: The What, How and where of Next-Generation Data Science<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.liverpool.ac.uk_research_research-2Dat-2Dliverpool_research-2Dthemes_digital_cdt-2Ddistributed-2Dalgorithms_&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=6IdqV6SOTq4-nJw1pQQ06KlMW1FgggUN1O7nRUB4fyA&s=la4YcN_BCmjfNXv2JNf7tvqB4im4B09lwCRZsNUSlDk&e=>". The University of Liverpool is working in partnership with the STFC Hartree Centre and other industrial partners from the manufacturing, defence and security sectors to provide a 4 year innovative PhD training course that will equip over 60 students with the essential skills needed to become future leaders in data science, be it in academia or industry. As well as learning from academic and industrial world leaders, the centre has a dedicated programme of interdisciplinary research training including the opportunity to undertake modules at the global pinnacle of Data science teaching.  A large number of events and training sessions are undertaken as a cohort of PhD students, allowing you to build personal and professional relationships that we hope will lead to research collaboration either now or in your future.

Start date: September 2019.

Candidate requirements:
We are looking for candidates with an upper-second class degree or international equivalent<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.bristol.ac.uk_international_countries_&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=6IdqV6SOTq4-nJw1pQQ06KlMW1FgggUN1O7nRUB4fyA&s=mKdjarb3PelL1yw-NmgiHr_jVpvJne3Kn4ozCvErX_w&e=> in computer science, robotics, engineering, physics, mathematics or related subject. Other disciplines will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Funding:
We have scholarships available for UK and EU students at standard UKRI rate.
