Trinity College Dublin in collaboration with Intel Labs Europe are seeking two exceptional candidates for postgraduate (PhD) research scholarships on visualization support for software-defined data centers. Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) is an emerging technology that will radically change the way in which ICT infrastructure is provided, managed and consumed. The research will have a strong HCI component, starting with end-user interviews, observations, and analysis, feeding in to the design of visualizations to support the work. It will involve significant interaction with industrial users throughout.
Funding would be sought via the Irish Research Council (IRC) enterprise partnership scheme, and includes a tax-free stipend and fees allowance, along with funding for research travel (note only the selected candidates would go through the IRC application process, and direct support will be provided for this).
The studentship is for four years and will be based in the School of Computer Science and Statistics at Trinity College Dublin. Situated in the centre of Dublin, Trinity College is a 400-year-old University with a large and active research profile in Computer Science.
In the first instance, please send a CV with two references to Gavin.Doherty @ tcd.ie by 5th June 2015.
