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.
