The School of Computing Sciences is an excellent place to study for a research degree. The school is organised into five laboratories:
- Colour & Imaging
- Computational Biology
- Data Science and Statistics
- Graphics, Vision and Speech
- Smart Emerging Technologies
Within these labs, research is carried out on computational biology, speech processing, computer graphics, computer vision, colour processing, data mining, optimisation, cyber security, AI, Internet of Things, machine learning and statistics.
The school is also part of the Norwich Research Park, which includes the Faculty of Science at UEA, the John Innes Centre, the Sainsbury Laboratory, the Earlham Institute, the Quadram Institute and the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital Trust. The School of Computing Sciences has strong collaborative research links across the Norwich Research Park.
Opportunities to join our research can be found via the project links below. In addition, details of the research performed across the School of Computing Sciences can be found on our Computing Science research pages and prospective students are welcome to contact supervisors in whose research they are interested to explore the opportunities. Staff research pages can be viewed via the School web pages at the address above where contact details can also be found. Prospective students are also welcome to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information about Research Degrees at UEA. It is anticipated that the majority of successful applicants will start on 1 October each year but some may be able to start at one of the University's other standard entry points (1 January, 1 April and 1 July).
The school has directly funded and competitively funded PhD projects.
For directly funded projects, we choose the best applicant for that project. For competitively funded projects, we choose the best applicants over a set of projects. Funding is usually only available for UK and EU applicants. Funding covers all fees (subject to eligibility) and provides a tax free stipend of approximately £14,000 a year.
