The SFI Centre for Research Training in Digitally-Enhanced Reality (D-REAL) is looking to recruit 30 PhD positions as part of a cohort-based training programme. Students will become part of a Centre for Research Training in the area of Digital Media, with one cohort in place already and two further cohorts being recruited in 2021 and 2022. Overall 120 PhD students will graduate from this programme over the next six years.
All students will be members of a cohort of 30, working across a number of disciplines in the area of digital media. The cohort will be brought together for training activities throughout the four years, across all five institutions. Training will focus on disciplinary skills, master classes and transferable skills. Graduates will develop the skills necessary to work in industry or in academia.
Students will be hired on specific projects, as detailed on our website. Each student will have a supervisor in their ‘home’ institution and a secondary supervisor from among the 100 supervisors in the D-REAL programme. This supervisory system encourages collaboration across the institutions, giving the student the opportunity to draw on expert knowledge across the programme. An industry placement of 3 months is built into the programme in order to give students experience of working in world-leading organisations.
Whether via multimodal devices such as smart phones, embedded displays and IoT, or virtual assistants and VR/AR experiences, media technology is revolutionising the way we interact, collaborate and behave. D-REAL PhD students will develop skills for next generation human-centric media technology, including:
- machine intelligence-based sensing and understanding of digital content and information;
- its transformation and personalisation;
- its multimodal interaction and delivery via speech, text, video, image and VR/AR; and
- its impactful application in multiple industry and societal settings.
Each student who is admitted to this programme will receive a full scholarship to undertake a four-year structured PhD programme. This scholarship comprises full payment of university fees for four years and a tax-free stipend of €18,500 per annum for four years. In addition, a budget for conference travel, equipment, training, placement maintenance and publication costs is provided.
The minimum requirements for entry into the programme are:
2.1 grade (or equivalent) in an undergraduate or postgraduate degree in computer science, maths, engineering or similar technical discipline. Other qualifications in disciplines related to listed PhD topics will also be considered.
Strong programming/technical ability.
Non-native English speakers require at least IELTS 6.5 (with at least 6 in all components) or equivalent.
The deadline for applications is Wednesday 18th March 2020. Applicants will be interviewed in March/April, to take up their positions in September 2020. If there are unfilled positions after the 18th March deadline a rolling deadline will apply.
Applicants should visit the D-REAL website (d-real.ie) and complete an online application form. Applicants will be asked to fill out details of their education and work record and to select their top three PhD topic preferences from a list of 30 topics.
