----------------------------------------------------------------------
* 1 3-year PhD studentship in Machine Learning for Synthetic Biology
* Location: School of Computing, Newcastle University, UK
* Start date: Academic year 2018/2019
* Deadline for application: 18th of July, 2018.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

* Value of award

100% of UK tuition fees paid and an annual stipend of £14,777 (full award).

* Description

This PhD studentship is part of the Portabolomics project. The vision of 
Portabolomics is to bring forth a breakthrough in Synthetic Biology that 
will enable the development of portable biocircuits across chassis (i.e. 
from one bacteria species to another). This vision is akin to the Java 
virtual machine having enabled the reuse and portability of software 
across different operating systems and hardware platforms.

In this doctoral project you will focus on the challenge of devising 
innovative strategies to transform the vast volumes of data generated in 
the wet lab experiments of Portabolomics into actionable knowledge that 
can feed into the computational work on network analysis and 
verification in the project. The data generated by the project is vast 
and diverse: imaging data, omics data, complex and heterogeneous 
annotation from public and private sources. Using a combination of 
biological data integration, state-of-the-art machine learning, 
knowledge extraction and information visualisation techniques we seek to 
build methods to identify biomarkers and infer biological networks.

The specific topic of the studentship will be decided based on the skill 
set of the successful applicant, although we envision that it will 
require a combination of the following:

- Strong machine learning background and proficiency in the state of the 
art data science languages (e.g. R, python)
- Deep Learning
- Knowledge discovery
- Biological data integration
- Information visualisation
- High Performance Computing (e.g. classic HPC clusters, GPUs, Intel 
PHI, Big Data frameworks, Cloud resources).


* Eligibility Criteria:

Applicants should have a first class degree, or a combination of 
qualifications and/or experience equivalent to that level. Ideally, 
students should have a BSc or MSc degree in computer science. Applicants 
should be strong programmers, and experience in machine learning/data 
mining/big data/information visualisation/biological data will be 
greatly valued.

Full fees will only be awarded following EPSRC eligibility rules 
(https://epsrc.ukri.org/skills/students/help/eligibility/).

* How to apply

You must apply through http://www.ncl.ac.uk/postgraduate/apply/
To do this please ‘Create a new account’ 
(https://www.ncl.ac.uk/postgraduate/apply/?utm_source=referral-jobs&utm_medium=advert&utm_content=comp007-apply&utm_campaign=PG3PL-jobs-ac-uk-advert).

Only mandatory fields need to be completed.  However, you will need to 
include the following information:
- Insert the programme code 8050F in the programme of study section
- Select PhD Computer Science (full time) - (Computing Science)', as the 
programme of study
- Insert the studentship code COMP007
- Attach covering letter, CV and (if English is not your first language) 
a copy of English language qualifications. The covering letter must 
state title of studentship, quote reference *COMP007* and describe how 
your research interests fit with the topic of research project outlined 
in the advertisement (maximum of two pages).

please send your covering letter and CV by e-mail to
