Vacancies #

We very much welcome and support applications from underrepresented groups and from people of all shapes, shades, and genders. If you are uncertain about your possible role in our team, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Ke Li.

We have multiple fully funded PhD studentships available.

  • UKRI and CEMPS co-funded PhD studentship to commence on 25th September 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter. For eligible students the studentship will cover Home tuition fees plus an annual tax-free stipend of at least £17,668 for 3.5 years full-time, or pro rata for part-time study. More detailed information can be found from here.
  • A new PhD studentship is opening in our lab!!! This project is mainly led by our colleagues in the Engineering department. The topic is about trustworthy and explainable AI for smart energy system management. Please feel free to contact me about more details.

There are multiple opportunities available at the University of Exeter to fund your PhD study.

  • China Scholarship Council (Chinese Students): The University of Exeter is proud to offer up to 50 full-time PhD scholarships in collaboration with the China Scholarship Council (CSC). The application deadline is usually around the beginning of January. More detailed information can be found from here.
  • Doctor Training Partnerships (UK/EU & International Students): As a research intensive university in the UK, Exeter has strong commitments to work in partnerships with several research councils to fund talented students for a PhD. The deadline is usually around the end of January every year. More detailed information can be found from here.

We welcome applications by post-doc and research fellows. Unfortunately, we do not have funding available at this time. However, if you want to propose a collaboration based on an externally-funded post-doctoral scholarship, please get in touch. Here are some potential funding opportunities:

We are also welcome the self-funded visiting scholars (supported by CSC or other government organisations) to join the COLA Laboratory. Note that I prefer at most host 3 long-term (at least one year) visitors simultaneously in order to allocate enough supervision time.

We are not able to host any summer intern in our lab at the moment.
