I am part of my large research grant with UCL, QMUL and Imperial (https://binaryblurring.com/2017/12/04/win-of-6-million-to-research-digital-interfacing/ ) titled “Interfaces Reasoning for Interacting Systems.
As part of this we have four fully funded PhD studentships available – http://www.cs.ucl.ac.uk/prospective_students/phd_programme/funded_scholarships/
While the advertisement focuses on computer science issues, the final bullet point “Tools for modelling and reasoning about organizational architecture” directly relates to Information Systems and Digital Innovation areas. Essentially if you would like to undertake a funded PhD focused on the managerial, social and organisational impact of Digital Interfacing (e.g. Digital ecosystems, Cloud Computing, Platforms, Boundary Resources, APIs,) please apply! While the advert insists on computer science or mathematics degrees – for those seeking to work with me a strong Information Systems Masters, or First-Class Degree in a related discipline would be sufficient.
[Note the PhD may need to be based at UCL while supervised by myself with Prof. David Pym as joint supervisor. The starting stipend will be approximately £17,000, with an approximate annual uplift of 3%. ].
It is possible that the studentship would be supported by AWS (Amazon) and involve working with AWS (Amazon), BT or Facebook among others .
Please apply ASAP as we are looking to recruit very very soon! Applications need only be a couple of pages long.
