CDT in Pervasive Parallelism Affiliate Scheme

Opportunity for Informatics PhD students to benefit from the events and resources of the CDT in Pervasive Parallelism.

The CDT in Pervasive Parallelism (PPar), which trains the next generation of experts in parallelism, concurrency and distribution, is opening its doors to PhD students working in related research areas, who wish to engage with the CDT and gain access to its activities, contacts and equipment.

The CDT PPar Affiliate Scheme is aimed at students who would prefer to undertake a 3-year Informatics PhD, without the additional MSc by Research year included in the CDT programme, but would like to engage with the CDT through the methods listed below.

CDT PPar Affiliate Students must be:

  • Registered as a PhD student within the School of Informatics
  • Working in an area relevant to the CDT PPar (see below for details)
  • Industrially sponsored (fully or partly)

CDT PPar Affiliate Students gain from:

  • Access to the CDT PPar industrial internship scheme
  • Access to CDT PPar industrial activities (projects, meetings, supervision opportunities)
  • Exposure and networking through major CDT PPar events (student conferences, industrial engagement events) and the CDT PPar website
  • Involvement with other local CDT events (lunch talks, seminars, transferable skills training)
  • Access to the CDT PPar equipment pool (but not funding for individual equipment or travel)
  • A third co-supervisor from within the PPar supervisor pool, who will provide a different, broader perspective on the students’ work

Prospective students who are applying for a 3-year PhD at the School of Informatics, and believe they would benefit from becoming a CDT PPar Affiliate Student, should email the link below to express their interest.

Current PhD students who would like to be Affiliate Students, and who meet the eligibility criteria listed above, should speak with their supervisor and contact the CDT PPar through the link below to express their interest.

Research areas within the scope of the CDT PPar include parallelism, heterogeneity, concurrency and distribution, as applied to:

  • Architecture, Networks and Compilation
  • Programming Languages and Software
  • Modelling, Proof and Concurrency Theory
  • Applications and HPC
