Special Research Fund-Doctoral Scholarships for Foreign Students at University of Ghent in Belgium, 2018

Special Research Fund-Doctoral Scholarships for Foreign Students at University of Ghent in Belgium, 2018

Applications are inviting for Special Research Fund-Doctoral Scholarships for Belgian and Foreign to pursue the doctoral programme at the University of Ghent.

With support from its “Special Research Fund” (BOF), Ghent University wishes to support university research groups or research centres in developing countries in their aim to grow into excellent research centres by upgrading local academic personnel.

Ghent University is a top 100 university and one of the major universities in Belgium. Our 11 faculties offer a wide range of courses and conduct in-depth research in both exact and social sciences. Ghent University aims to encourage its students to adopt a critical approach within a creative, development-oriented educational and research environment.

To be able to determine the proficiency of someone’s knowledge of Dutch or English, Ghent University uses the Common European Framework Reference for Foreign Languages. There are six foreign language proficiency levels and is a basis for the recognition of language qualifications.

Scholarship Description:

  • Application Deadline: May 3, 2018
  • Course Level: Scholarships are available to pursue the doctoral programme.
  • Study Subject: The best way to do this is by browsing through the list of faculties and research topics available on the research directory of website.
  • Scholarship Award: The BOF doctoral scholarships are initially awarded for 2 years. After an intermediate evaluation, for which the Research Council assesses the probability that the grant will lead into a PhD degree, a second term of maximum 2 years can be granted. Candidates who have to submit an application for the prolongation of their BOF doctoral scholarship will be invited by the BOF team in due time. The amount of the scholarship is approximately € 2.070 per month, depending on the family status of the scholar. Based on the advice of the Research Council, a bench fee of € 7.440 (€ 310/month) will be awarded to the promoter per term of 2 years.
  • Number of Scholarships: Ghent University awards each year 50 PhD scholarships to predoctoral researchers, aimed at obtaining a doctoral degree within a time span of 4 years.
  • Nationality: Both Belgian and foreign students
  • Scholarship can be taken in the Belgium

Eligibility for the Scholarship:

  • Eligible Countries: Both Belgian and foreign students are eligible to apply.
  • Entrance Requirements: The following criteria must be met in order for applicants to be eligible for the scholarship.
      • No restrictions on nationality, age or research topic.
      • Only for candidates with excellent study results during the entire study career.

    This call is highly competitive. A high candidate score is an absolute requirement when applying for a BOF-doctoral scholarship. To be taken into consideration, applicants preferably belong at least to the top 15% best students of the group of fellow students who took exams for the same degree (bachelor and master). Applicants with a lower candidate score stand very little chance of getting a BOF-doctoral scholarship.During the past years, most of the candidates who achieved a BOF-doctoral scholarship belonged amongst the top 5% to top 10% best students for all diplomas.

    • Note: At the start of the BOF doctoral scholarship candidates will receive a dehousse scholarship (exempted from taxation). This scholarship is limited to a maximum of 48 months during the entire academic career. When this limit is reached during the BOF fellowship, the PhD student can be appointed by BOF as WP (research staff) for a maximum of 12 months. This implies that PhD students who have already received a dehousse scholarship for more than 12 months before the start of the BOF fellowship, will have their BOF fellowship reduced by the number of months that exceed the maximum term of 12 months of appointment as WP.
  • English Language Requirements: To be able to determine the proficiency of someone’s knowledge of Dutch or English, Ghent University uses the Common European Framework Reference for Foreign Languages.

PhD Studentship – (Sponsored by Lloyd’s Register Foundation) Autonomous defect classification for ultrasonic non-destructive testing in advanced manufacturing processes

PhD Studentship – (Sponsored by Lloyd’s Register Foundation) Autonomous defect classification for ultrasonic non-destructive testing in advanced manufacturing processes

  • Applications accepted all year round
  • Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

PhD Project Theme
Autonomous defect classification for ultrasonic non-destructive testing in advanced manufacturing processes

Background
Ultrasonic Testing (UT) is a popular method in advanced manufacturing to evaluate the integrity of components without having an impact of their future usefulness (non-destructive testing). Commonly, components are inspected using manual encoded solutions (conventional UT or Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT)) and the data is then analysed by a skilled operator. As such is dependent on the operator’s testing experiences and as this could potentially lead to errors, there is an academic research and industry need to develop a system capable of Autonomous Defect Recognition (ADR), potentially to be integrated alongside existing inspection processes and systems.

Project Outline

The overall objective of this PhD is to develop a computational framework for autonomous defect classification for ultrasonic testing. Research work will focus on Machine Learning (ML) methodologies (but not limited to ML alone), with potential investigation topics on feature extraction and selection methods in spatiotemporal signals, model-based supervised and unsupervised classification algorithms, as well as autonomous and semi-autonomous model-based decision making.

The overarching aim of the computational framework is to provide interpretation of detected signals within welds or bonds and to enable these to be classified according to a predetermined set of relevant acceptance criteria. This will necessitate the development of a system that seamlessly integrates to existing phased array equipment, and following an algorithmic process, displays the outcome of the autonomous classification results in simple linguistic terms for the process operators.

The computational framework to be developed will be assessed for its generalisation properties, based on a general selection of welds and bonds but also specifically evaluated on selected material and joining techniques. Specifically, the plastic pipe welding sector has a demand for an ADR technology. Therefore the developed methods will foremost be evaluated on this type of joining. System validation will entail a library of typical flaws and will examine the integration of the proposed framework into existing inspection processes and devices. As part of this research work, the proposed system will undergo laboratory and field trials, which will provide additional feedback and opportunities for identifying research gaps and progressing this work further.
