The School of Informatics are offering 3 x 4 year fully funded Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTA) for PhD study.
Graduate Teaching Assistantships allow research students to fund their PhD through part-time teaching work with the University.
A Graduate Teaching Assistant is responsible to the Head of School and is expected to undertake teaching or other duties within the School - not normally exceeding 8-10 contact hours per week - while undertaking research leading to a PhD.
Approximately 81.3% of their time will be spent on their doctoral research and 18.7% on their GTA responsibilities. Training is provided to help Graduate Teaching Assistants develop their teaching related skills and enhance their professional competencies.

We welcome applications from those looking to undertake doctoral research in any aspect of informatics or computer science compatible with the research interests of our academic staff including:
