We are happy to announce that applications are now open for the Doctoral 
Fellowship programme in Computer Science at the University of 
Birmingham, UK, for start in October 2019. These Fellowships fund a 
4-year full-time programme of PhD study, and provide a elevated stipend 
of £18,150 per year (tax-free, healthcare provided for free). Successful 
applicants will be expected to contribute to the research and teaching 
life of the School of Computer Science, with a maximum teaching load of 
1 day per week, averaged over the year.

The School of Computer Science has a large and thriving Theoretical 
Computer Science research group, with a particular focus on category 
theory and its applications to the logical foundations of computer 
science. Among our research interests are:

  - category theory and higher category theory;
  - type theory;
  - homotopy type theory and univalent foundations;
  - formal proof;
  - lambda-calculus and computational effects;
  - topology and domain theory;
  - constructive mathematics;
  - quantum computing;
  - semantics;
  - program compilation.

Our group currently has 11 permanent staff (see list below) and more 
than a dozen PhD students. We have a weekly seminar, as well as more 
informal meetings and reading groups. Information on all of this can be 
found on our webpage:


The Fellowships are available to UK and EU citizens only. However, 
partial fellowships may still be available to Non-EU overseas students 
depending on circumstances. Further information about PhD applications 
may be found here:
