Dear Colleagues,

(Apologies for cross-posting.) With a few days to go, I'm happy to announce that the earlier advertised computing PhD project on the Abstract Mapping of Ancient and Contemporary Cities at the University of Kent will now qualify for funding from the Computational Intelligence group. Deadline is 31st of March.

Would you please be so kind as to distribute this message among potentially interested students, colleagues and research groups?

PhD opportunity on 'Abstract Mapping for Ancient and Contemporary Cities'

The School of Computing at the University of Kent is currently advertising an exciting and innovative interdisciplinary research project lead by Dr Peter Rodgers http://www.cs.kent.ac.uk/people/staff/pjr/  (Computing) and Dr Benjamin Vis http://www.kent.ac.uk/secl/classics/staff/vis.html  (Classical and Archaeological Studies). We are looking for an enthusiastic PhD student with advanced software development skills. The ideal candidate would also have experience with spatial data and a general interest in the archaeological and urban studies expert uses of the diagrammatic visualisations this project will develop.
Further information on this project can be found in the list here<http://www.cs.kent.ac.uk/research/groups/compint/pgprojects.html>.

Applications to this project would qualify for a three year funding award from the Computational Intelligence group covering home/EU fees and a stipend. (http://www.cs.kent.ac.uk/research/studyingforaphd/phd-compint.html)

Comprehensive information on PhD funding opportunities is found here<http://www.kent.ac.uk/scholarships/postgraduate/index.html>.
