PhDs in high performance computing

EPCC offers the opportunity to study for a PhD in areas related to high performance computing, software sustainability and data intensive computing.


EPCC offers studentships through the Centre for Doctoral Training in Pervasive Parallelism(link is external) in collaboration with the School of Informatics: applications for 2018 are still open.


See the list of possible PhD topics suggested by members of staff in EPCC. These topics are intended to give PhD applicants an idea of the scope of the work in the centre, and applicants can also suggest their own topic.

In either case, prospective students should contact the potential supervisor before submitting an application, and agree a short research proposal, which must be submitted with the application. Supervisors will advise prospective students on the further details of the application process.
