Description:

Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Centre for Doctoral Training in Intelligent Games and Game Intelligence (IGGI)

11 fully-funded studentships are available each year (covering fees at Home/EU rate and a stipend for four years) in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Intelligent Games and Game Intelligence (IGGI), to conduct cutting-edge research and train the next generation of researchers, designers, developers and entrepreneurs in digital games.

IGGI is a collaboration between three UK Universities: the University of York, the University of Essex and Goldsmiths College, University of London. IGGI PhDs will be based at their principal supervisor’s University site with travel to the other sites for team and training activities.

IGGI brings together 60 industrial partners from the UK games industry and related organisations (including Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, The Creative Assembly, Codemasters, Rebellion, TIGA, and many more – see www.iggi.org.uk/our-industrial-partners/). IGGI PhDs will have the opportunity to engage in placements at these partner organisations, as well as international research labs, during their PhD research.

In addition to conducting research with world-leading academics and industry partners, you will participate in global game jams, co-organise and participate in an annual games symposium, and engage with industry-led seminars. You will receive training from experts in Games Development, Games Design, Research Skills and a range of optional modules including AI, computer vision, human-computer interaction, storytelling, graphics, sound and robotics.

Since places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis, we encourage applicants to contact prospective supervisors and submit applications as soon as possible.
