PhD Studentship - Best Practice Design for Autonomic Applications in the Cloud

This studentship will focus on the emerging and challenging research area of using BU’s software engineering and neurocomputational modeling research for BT’s autonomic models in the cloud. 

BT’s research team has strong interests and experience in autonomic (self-learning, self-configuring etc) modelling in different application scenarios that are ranging from networks to business processes. Cloud computing is increasingly used inside BT's infrastructure in order to facilitate flexible and changeable application requirements (e.g. storage requirements for Big Data applications). The application of autonomics in the cloud is becoming increasingly important and therefore part of BT’s strategic research objectives.

This is a fully-funded PhD studentship which includes a stipend of £14,000 each year to support your living costs.

Next start date: September 2017
Location: Bournemouth University, Talbot Campus
Duration: 36 months
Entry requirements: Preferably a 1st class honours degree and/or a relevant Master's degree with distinction or equivalent Grade Point Average. If English is not your first language you'll need IELTS 6.5 (Academic) or above.Candidates will need a strong first degree in Computer Science, Mathematics, Engineering or related subjects. Excellent technical ability and programming skills are essential. For more information check out our full entry requirements.

En el marco de las tesis también se llevarán a cabo colaboraciones con otros grupos nacionales y extranjeros. El grupo MODES ha vuelto a ser reconocido como grupo de referencia competitiva de la Xunta de Galicia en la convocatoria del año 2016. Los miembros del grupo son autores de más de un centenar de publicaciones en el período 2012‐2016 en revistas de alto impacto internacional.

El perfil requerido es el de graduado, licenciado o ingeniero con sólida formación en matemáticas y en estadística, preferiblemente con título de máster o cursándolo y con buen expediente académico. Es necesario estar matriculado o en condiciones de matricularse en un programa de doctorado en 2017 (preferentemente en febrero).
