The Department of Informatics has a rapidly rising research profile, with increasing numbers of major externally funded projects, a strong publication profile and significant research activity. Our research is organised around our research groups, and you can find details of the range of current research projects and interests on the Department's research pages.
If you are interested in joining us to undertake PhD research, you should identify topics and academic staff in your area of interest. If you cannot find your chosen topic or area on our individual research section or subgroup pages, contact a relevant member of academic staff for further information and then follow the application procedure.
We are a medium-sized department with many internationally recognised researchers and visiting academics, large groups of PhD students, research assistants, national and international projects, collaborations with other departments and the School as well as links with industry. We offer an exciting environment and excellent opportunities for research.
