Fully funded PhD Studentship available at the University of Stirling in collaboration with Wallet.Services
A fully funded PhD studentship on Trustable dapps on reliable blockchain technologies is available at the Computing Science and Mathematics division of the University of Stirling, in collaboration with Wallet.Services.
The goal of this project is the design of a suitable framework to support the development of reliable and trustable blockchain-based decentralised applications. Interestingly, the project benefits from the participation of Wallet.Services, an emerging start-up in the global fintech sector. Wallet.Services will provide interesting use cases and their industrial know-how to the project. The student is expected to carry out the research in collaboration with the company. The project will also take into due consideration the latest developments in the technology, as well as specific interests and expertise of the student.
This project will be carried out under the joint supervision of Dr. Andrea Bracciali and Wallet.Services, within an international academic network with expertise in verification, game theory, cryptography, programming languages, modelling and finance, and will enjoy the support of a growing multidisciplinary group of researchers and students interested in blockchain technologies.
The project will also benefit from the thriving fintech Scottish sector, which has a strong interest in blockchain technologies, and could particularly contribute to the, academic or industrial, career development of the student.
Students with a background in, or across, computer science, economics, mathematics (non-exclusive list!), and interested in a scientific approach to breakthrough technologies are encouraged to apply.
Interested candidates are invited to contact Dr. Andrea Bracciali of the University of Stirling should they wish to apply for the position, or further discuss the project and any detail of the fellowship, PhD studies and university life in Scotland.
