2 PhD Studentships: Computer Science 406 views

University College Cork (UCC) invites applications for two four-year doctoral studentships in Computer Science as part of the SMARTeBuses project funded by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland Research RD&D Programme.

About the project:
  • The project is classified as Non-economic Public Good Research under the EU State Aid regulations.
  • The project will exploit, combine and improve cutting-edge AI technologies (Constraint Programming, Mixed Integer Programming, Metaheuristics and their combination with Machine Learning) to develop and implement optimization models for the operation of electric buses in Ireland with operational constraints (e.g., limited driving range and battery charging/discharging time).

Requirements:

  • Applicants must have an undergraduate or taught postgraduate degree in computer science or mathematics, with strong analytical, problem solving, and software experience.
  • Applicants are expected to have some experience in constraint programming, operations research, machine learning, optimization, local search, graph theory or artificial intelligence, e.g. having undertaken an undergraduate project in one of these areas or having completed an MSc in a closely related area.
  • Expertise in other relevant areas would be advantageous like integer or dynamic programming, or evolutionary computation or other metaheuristics, or a machine learning area such as reinforcement learning.

Funding:

  • Total funding of €18,500 per annum for up to four years and an annual contribution of €5,500 towards tuition fees.

Applications:

Application to be sent via email to Dr. Alejandro Arbelaez (a.arbelaez@cs.ucc.ie) and must include “PhD SMARTeBuses Application” in the subject line and applications must include, in PDF format only:

  • Full CV;
  • A transcript of results for all university level modules and courses;
  • Abstract describing final year undergraduate project (if applicable)- One-page
  • Abstract describing MSc project (if applicable)- One-page
  • Abstract describing relevant work experience (if applicable)- One-page
  • Statement explaining interest in research (300 words)
  • If the successful applicant’s first language is not English they will have to provide evidence of English language proficiency.
