Swansea University calls Ph.D. students for a fully-funded scholarship program in Topological Data Analysis Data for 2020. As part of the major Oxford-Swansea-Liverpool Centre for Topological Data Analysis, Swansea University is looking for a Ph.D. student to join the Swansea team (consisting of 5 permanent core members and multiple postdocs and Ph.D. students) in investigating applications of topology to data science and physics. More importantly, the focus of this project is to develop and implement new computational topology methods for a diverse range of data-analysis problems, driven by challenges from biomedical science, economics, and physics. Additionally, principal tools include persistent homology, Mapper / Ball Mapper, and Hodge theory on graphs. Also, the project involves a mixture of theoretical and computational work (both using existing tools, and writing new code).
The candidates must meet the following requirements to access the fully-funded scholarship program at Swansea
All scholarship applications require two supporting references to be submitted.
Academic Transcripts and Degree Certificates
Likewise, the candidates must submit academic transcripts and degree certificates along with the scholarship application by the funding deadline.
In addition to that, the University requires a recent CV.
The focus of the work is to study the shape of data, and build on existing data science techniques. Also, the theoretical field of mathematics that enables the study of shapes is geometry and topology. The ability to quantify the shape of complicated objects is only possible with advanced mathematics and algorithms. Furthermore, the aim of this Centre is to build on current persistent homology tools, extending it theoretically and computationally.
