Intelligent Sensing and Communications PhD Research Opportunities

The Intelligent Sensing and Communications group has a strong track record in research with a community of PhD students.

We have excellent laboratory facilities for experiments in:

  • radio and acoustic communication
  • sensor systems
  • DSP

Combined with modern algorithm development tools, this is an ideal environment for research innovation.

Our PhD students publish world-leading research in international journals and present their work at prestigious global conferences.

PhD project opportunities are currently available in the following areas:

  • Advanced communication receivers for radio and underwater acoustic channels
  • Fast transforms, security/encryption and signal processing in the encrypted domain
  • Machine learning algorithms for signal analysis and source separation
  • Biometric signal and image processing
  • Non-destructive evaluation (NDE) using electromagnetic and acoustic technology
  • Sensor development and wireless sensor networks
  • Channel coding, network coding and cooperative networks


Financial support is available from a range of scholarships.
