We are pleased to announce a minimum of 15 funded PhD positions as part 
of a new Centre for Doctoral Training in Computer Science, the first of 
its kind in the UK (http://www.cs.manchester.ac.uk/phd/programmes/cdt/).

Manchester won the £2.2 million grant despite strong competition from 
other leading computer science departments across the UK. The awarding 
panel felt strongly that Manchester represented an excellent opportunity 
to make a real impact to doctoral training in the UK. Professor Steve 
Furber, director of the new centre, said: "We are delighted to have been 
chosen by EPSRC for this flagship Centre for Doctoral Training in 
Computer Science, and look forward to rising to the challenge of using 
this opportunity to transform computing PhDs in the UK."

This exciting opportunity covers the research area of Many-core 
Computing (http://www.teraflux.eu), Virtualization and Managed Runtime 
Enviroments within the the Advanced Processor Technologies Group 
(http://apt.cs.man.ac.uk/). Transitive
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QuickTransit recently acquired by IBM) was 
a spin-off company commercializing research carried out by the APT group 
on binary translation.
