Microsoft Research scholarship or Microsoft EMEA Scholarship in Algorithms for Massive Data Analysis is now open to any potential PhD students in the field of Computer Science. Please note that this scholarship is specially offered to those coming from European Union countries and other countries with certain condition. The selected candidates will have opportunity to enroll PhD program in computing areas at Warwick University. In addition, the successful applicants will be supported with tuition fees and stipend during his or her study at the university. Please anticipate the deadline of this scholarship in January 31, 2015.
A Microsoft Research scholarship place is available to study algorithms for massive data analysis, leading to a PhD in Computer Science. The goal of this scholarship project is to develop new algorithms for sketching of massive graphs and matrices, and to demonstrate their usefulness via theoretical analysis and empirical evaluation. The hope is to advance our knowledge of the theory in this area, and design algorithms which can be used in practice, such as for querying data represented as a (massive) graph, clustering/partitioning graph structured data, and optimization problems over large graphs.
Each Microsoft scholarship consists of an annual bursary for up to a maximum of three years. The winners may expect to receive tuition fees and stipend during the period of the program.
Level and Area of Studies
PhD and research in Computer Science.
Place of Study
At the University of Warwick in UK. The students also will be invited to Microsoft Research in Cambridge for an annual Summer School that includes a series of talks of academic interest and posters sessions.
Eligibility and Criteria
Eligible applicants should be exceptional students who show the potential to make an outstanding contribution to science and computing. The candidate must also undergo the formal admission procedure to the university of Warwick, and approval from Microsoft Research.
Applicants should be the citizen of European Union Countries. In exceptional cases, it may be possible to support students from outside the EU.
To apply, please contact Graham Cormode or Milan Vojnovic directly with a CV and description of your experience relevant to this project.
