PhD positions in Bath (UK)

At least 10 fully-funded studentships are available now and annually for the next five years at the UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Accountable, Responsible and Transparent AI (ART-AI) at the University of Bath.

Our 4 year PhD programme will train students to be “a specialist with perspectives”, with not only AI skills but a broader understanding of the engineering applications of AI and the ethical, policy and socio-economic consequences of intelligent technologies.

As part of the training, students will work with our partners including industry, government and international universities, to co-create research projects. Students will also experience different research environments on placement.
