PhD position in computational inverse problems

The University College London has established an Centre for Inverse Problems, jointly by the Department of Computer Science, Department of Mathematics and Department of Statistics. We look for one or several fully funded, 3-year studentships, to start in September 2016. It is for exceptionally qualified students to complete PhD in computational inverse problems, which lies at the interface between inverse problems and computational mathematics. The applicant should have bachelor or master degree in mathematics, scientific computing or related areas, as well as good programming skills. Specific research topics include, but not limited to, sparsity regularization, Bayesian inversion, and inverse problems for nonlocal diffusion. To find out more about the centre, please visit

The three-year funding includes full tuition fees, a training support fee and standard, tax-free maintenance for UK/EU students. The studentship is open to UK, EU and oversea applicants.

Expressions of interest should be sent to Dr. Bangti Jin at Department of Computer Science, via email, and should include:
- A short statement (250 words) explaining your motivation for applying to the position
- A 2-page CV which includes your academic and work experience.

All the complete applications (submitted through the portal PRiSM) will be reviewed rapidly and promising applicants will be invited to an interview. The deadline of the first round of application in the department is December 15, 2015.​
