Research Scholarships Available at the
Dept of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering
The University of Sheffield

1. Adaptive Predictive Control in Biomedicine

Applications are invited for the above 3-year studentship, leading to a
PhD, to work in the area of Intelligent Control Systems (Soft Computing,
including Fuzzy logic, Neural Networks, and Genetic Algorithms) and
Model-Based Adaptive Predictive Control applied to biomedicine. The
successful candidate will be involved in the software and hardware
aspects of an exciting research project which will offer adequate
resources, technical support, and practical experience. He/She will
also have the opportunity to join a top-rated Engineering Department
which achieved a Grade 5 in the last Research Assessment Exercise.

This studentship can commence on a date between June and October 1998 by
mutual agreement.

2. Institute for Microstructural and Mechanical Processing Engineering:
The University of Sheffield (IMMPETUS)

Applications are invited for a 3-year PhD studentship linked with
IMMPETUS. The project will involve modelling and control for improved
microstructural properties of hot-worked metals, especially steel and
aluminium. This encompasses nonlinear physically-based models coupled to
intelligent systems techniques for control of rolling processes.

This studentship commences on 1 October 1998 or later by agreement.

Award Value:
Each studentship will pay tuition fees plus a maintenance allowance to
the successful student of 5,400 per year.

Eligibility:
You must be a UK resident and have, or expect to achieve, at least a BSc
(Hons) class 2:1 or equivalent in a relevant science, maths or
engineering subject.

In addition:
Three UK Research Studentships - which can be allocated to any research
topic in the Department - are also available to start on or after 1
October. A minimum of a 2:1 degree is required. Please ask for more
details.
