Dear Colleagues, 

Please find below (and attached) information on a fully funded PhD studentship, which I would like
to ask you to disseminate to suitable candidates. This is a research project in collaboration with industry on 
developing topics on blockchain technologies.  

Interested students are invited to contact me.

Many thanks.

With best wishes,

Trustable dapps on reliable blockchain technologies

Fully-funded PhD Studentship
University of Stirling, UK

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, 
UK, 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 WalletServices (www.wallet.services), an emerging 
startup in the global fintech sector. WalletServices 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 
WalletServices, 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. 

The studentship will  cover tuition fees, and a standard stipend at RCUK rates 
(from about 14,000GBP), for three years. We would like to fill the position shortly, but the 
start date can be negotiated.

Interested candidates are invited to contact Dr. Andrea Bracciali

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.
