University of Edinburgh
Informatics (Institute for Adaptive and Neural Computation)
The department's research falls into 3 areas: machine learning, computational neuroscience and computational biology; in machine learning we develop probabilistic methods that find patterns and structure in data, and apply them to scientific and technological problems; applications include areas as diverse as astronomy, health sciences and computing; in computational neuroscience and neuroinformatics we study how the brain processes information; the focus in the computational biology area is to develop computational strategies to store, analyse and model a variety of biological data (from protein measurements to insect behavioural data).
Applicants should have an undergraduate degree in an appropriate subject or relevant qualifications and experience; applicants whose 1st language is not English require: IELTS 6.5 (with at least 6.0 in each module); TOEFL internet-based test 92 (with at least 20 in each module); PTE 61 (with at least 56 in each of the communicative skills sections); or CPE grade C or CAE grade B.
