Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

There are a number of PhD scholarships available at the University of
Manchester that might be of interest to this list:

* Mining Protein Interaction Data and its Context from the Scientific
Literature (BBSRC CASE studentship with Pfzier)
* Extraction, Representation and Exploration of Analytical Methods in
Computational Biology (BBSRC studentship)
* Google European Doctoral Fellowship Programme
* School of Computer Science’s PhD Scholarships

Details and links are provided below.

* Mining Protein Interaction Data and its Context from the Scientific Literature (CASE Studentship with Pfzier)

A full four year BBSRC-funded CASE studentship is available to study the
way findings, experiments and knowledge about protein interactions is
presented in the literature, and in particular how contextual
information that details protein interactions are encoded and presented.
Focus will be placed on pharmaceutically relevant protein interaction
data sets (e.g., pathogens such as HIV, hepatitis viruses, malaria etc.).

The studentship is open to UK/EU applicants and will pay tuition fees in
addition to an enhanced stipend. It will also involve a research
placement with the industrial CASE partner, Pfizer Global R&D in
Sandwich, UK. Applicants should ideally have experience in computational
biology, bioinformatics, computer science or a related subject area.
Knowledge of a programming language and text and/or data mining would be
a distinct advantage. Please e-mail {David.Robertson, G.Nenadic}
_AT_manchester.ac.uk if you require further details. The deadline for
applications is March 31, 2010.

* Extraction, Representation and Exploration of Analytical Methods in
Computational Biology

A full four year BBSRC-funded studentship is available to model and
create a knowledge base of data analysis techniques from across
computational biology by the automated extraction from the scientific
literature. Supplemented with profiles that summarise the semantics and
usage of the techniques, this resource will give biologists the ability
to choose a data analysis technique most suited to their questions and
data, in particular when outside a researcher’’s immediate expertise.

The studentship is open to UK/EU applicants and will pay tuition fees in
addition to a stipend. Applicants should have a good first degree in
computer science, bioinformatics or computational biology, or in a
related subject area. An MSc in a relevant subject area would be a
distinct advantage. Programming skills will be essential, as is an
interest in multi-disciplinary research. Please e-mail {Robert.Stevens,
David.Robertson, or G.Nenadic}_AT_manchester.ac.uk if you require
further details. The deadline for applications is 16th April, 2010.

* Google European Doctoral Fellowship Programme

The School of Computer Science is seeking to recruit up to two PhD
students who are eligible to be nominated for the Google European
Doctoral Fellowship Programme for 2010. The programme, running for the
first time this year, has been established by Google to support the best
and brightest PhD students in the field of Computer Science. Europe’s
leading Computer Science departments have been asked to nominate
candidates for these fully funded fellowships to study various topics,
including Natural Language Processing, Machine Translation, Search and
Information Retrieval and Social Computing.

The Google European Doctoral Fellowship Programme was created to support
outstanding PhD students doing exceptional research in the field of
computer science. Google will award approximately 10 named fellowships,
and these are open to prospective home/EU and international PhD
students. The application form must be received by the University of
Manchester (if you want to study here) by March 19th 2010.

* School of Computer Science’s PhD Scholarships for UK/EU applicants

The School of Computer Science of the University of Manchester has a
number of three-year PhD studentships to offer to highly motivated EU/UK
students. The scholarship include a wide range of topics, including
those related to Natural Language Processing and Text Mining.

Applicants should have an excellent first degree in computer science,
informatics, bioinformatics, mathematics or related discipline, and
preferrable an MSc and/or some publications. The studentships pay
tuition fees and a stipend to cover living expenses for 3 years. Because
of conditions associated with this funding, these studentships are open
to students eligible for home fees only; this includes UK and EU
nationals. Decisions on successful applications will be made on 26
March, 28 May, 30 July 2010.
