Deep Learning for Inverse Scattering Problems
We are recruiting new Doctoral Researchers to our EPSRC funded Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) PhD studentships starting 1 October 2023. Applications are invited for the project Deep Learning for Inverse Scattering Problems
Successful applicants will receive an annual stipend (bursary) of approximately £19,668, including inner London weighting, plus payment of their full-time home tuition fees for a period of 42 months (3.5 years).
You should be eligible for home (UK) tuition fees there are a very limited number (no more than three) of studentships available to overseas applicants, including EU nationals, who meet the academic entry criteria including English Language proficiency.
You will join the internationally recognised researchers in the Department of Mathematics
This research project is focused on inverse scattering. When an incident probing electromagnetic, acoustic or elastic field is launched into a medium that contains an object, that object will disturb the field and scatter it. This disturbance can be detected, and this project will explore the use of Deep Learning to use these detected signals to determine the shape of the object.
Please contact Dr Simon Shaw at firstname.lastname@example.org for an informal discussion about the studentships.
Applicants will have or be expected to receive a first or upper-second class honours degree in an Engineering, Computer Science, Design, Mathematics, Physics or a similar discipline. A Postgraduate Masters degree is not required but may be an advantage.
Skills and Experience
Applicants will be required to demonstrate knowledge of elliptic partial differential (e.g. Helmholtz) equations, experience in scientific computing (e.g. matlab, python, C/C++), and experience in the configuration and use of off the shelf PDE and deep learning software.
You should be highly motivated, able to work independently as well as in a team, collaborate with others and be able to communicate effectively both verbally and in writing.
How to apply
There are two stages of the application:
1.Applicants must submit the pre-application form via the following link https://brunel.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/epsrc-dtp-23-24-pre-application-form-brunel-university-lon-3 by 16.00 on Friday 26th May 2023.
2.If you are shortlisted for the interview, you will be asked to email the following documentation in a single PDF file to email@example.com within 24hrs.
- Your up-to-date CV;
- Your Undergraduate degree certificate(s) and transcript(s) essential;
- Your Postgraduate Masters degree certificate(s) and transcript(s) if applicable;
- Your valid English Language qualification of IELTS 6.5 overall (minimum 6.0 in each section) or equivalent, if applicable;
- Contact details for TWO referees, one of which can be an academic member of staff in the College.
Applicants should therefore ensure that they have all of this information in case they are shortlisted.
Interviews will take place in June 2023.
