The UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Safe and Trusted
Artificial Intelligence (STAI) brings together world leading experts
from King’s College London and Imperial College London to train a new
generation of researchers in safe and trusted artificial intelligence
The CDT will fund at least 12 students each year for the next 4 years.
Applications are open now to start in September 2021. The deadline for
the current round of applications is 22 November 2020, with further
rounds planned for entry in September 2021.
*About the STAI CDT *
The Safe and Trusted AI CDT offers a unique four-year
PhD programme, focused on the use of symbolic AI for ensuring the safety
and trustworthiness of AI systems. King’s College London and Imperial
College London are renowned for their expertise in symbolic AI and host
some of the world’s leaders in the area.
Various training activities, alongside individual PhD projects, will
train students in state-of-the-art AI techniques and give them the
opportunity to acquire a deep understanding of ethical, societal, and
legal implications of AI in a research and industrial setting. Through
engagement with the CDT’s diverse range of private and public sector
partners, students will be exposed to the different experiences,
challenges, and technical problems involved in both start-ups and large
The CDT leadership team is committed to providing an inclusive
environment in which diverse students can thrive. Diversity is crucial
for enabling world leading research, impact and teaching, and an
inclusive environment is vital to allow people to contribute their best.
Applications from individuals with non-standard backgrounds (e.g. those
from industry or returning from a career break) are encouraged, as are
applications from women, disabled and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic
(BAME) candidates, who are currently under-represented in the sector.
Each studentship will be funded for 4 years. This includes tuition fees,
stipend and a Research Training Support Grant (RTSG).
- Stipend: Students will receive a tax-free stipend of around £17,000
- RTSG: A generous allowance will be provided for research consumables
and additional training, and for attending UK and international conferences.
Funding is available for home students, and there is limited funding
for outstanding international students.
