The EPSRC-funded Centre for Doctoral Training in Pervasive Parallelism
at the University of Edinburgh is pleased to offer 12 fully funded
four year studentships across all areas relevant to the "pervasive
parallelism challenge". Students undertake an initial MSc by Research
year, followed by three years of PhD study.
