    Postgraduate Research Studentships

    The newly formed Research Institute for Computing within the Faculty of
    Business, Computing, and Information Management (BCIM) invites applications
    for postgraduate research studentships commencing in 2004. Research may be
    undertaken in any area of computing of interest to the Institute, including,
    but not restricted to, asynchronous circuits and systems, reconfigurable
    architectures, concurrency theory, information security, multimedia,
    real-time and safety critical systems, formal methods, evolutionary
    computing, generative literature, knowledge-based systems and scientific
    computing. A complete list of research groups and centres, as well as more
    information on research at the Faculty, may be found at

    Potential students with an interest in concurrency and hardware design, may
    wish to look at information on the existing Centre for Concurrent Systems
    and VLSI (CCSV), established in 1993 and now within the new Research
    Institute, under The Centre has a
    track-record of successful PhD completion, with some students benefitting
    from internships within the European microelectronics-design industry as
    part of their research training. Students who wish to study the theory and
    practice of asynchronous circuit design will find themselves part of a
    close-knit international research community that regularly organizes
    high-quality specialist events (

    Stipends will be £9000 p.a. initially. Continuation of the studentships is
    subject to successful applicants securing registration for PhD/MPhil within
    six months of admission. Applicants must have a good first degree, and
    preferably a masters degree, in Computer Science or a related discipline,
    such as Electrical Engineering or Mathematics. Work experience in industry
    would also be considered. Studentships are open for home, EU and overseas
    applicants. Applications should be made in writing to Professor Nimal
    Nissanke, BCIM, London South Bank University, 103 Borough Road, London SE1
    0AA, with a recent CV, names of two referees and a brief (about 700 word)
    description of the intended research. Potential applicants are welcome to
    discuss their research intentions with any member of staff with similar
    interests. Application forms are available at

    Fax +44 20 7815 7793, marked for the attention of Prof. Nimal Nissanke.

    Closing date: Friday 27th February 2004.

    Do contact Prof. Mark Josephs via email on Mark.Josephs[AT] if you
