Funded PhD Project in Machine Learning for Portfolio Optimisation

The School of Computing is currently inviting applications for a three-year funded PhD studentship in Machine Learning for Portfolio Optimisation,

The research, partially funded by Wealth Objects Ltd, will be supervised by Dr Michael Kampouridis.

The student will be registered as a full-time student at the University of Kent with occasional meetings with Wealth Objects Ltd as they have a particular interest in the area of portfolio optimisation.

The School is a welcoming and supportive environment that has been recognised with a Bronze Athena SWAN award. We are a well-balanced, inclusive and diverse community that aims to further enhance our achievements and reputation in teaching, research and innovation.

We provide comprehensive support for our research students including:
• regular supervision meetings
• a research training programme
• computer equipment
• a desk in an office
• funds for conference travel

The REF 2014 ranked us in the top quartile of 89 UK Computing departments, coming 22nd for Research Power and 12th for Research Intensity.
