Fellowships

We offer a number of fully-funded fellowship opportunities to students applying for the Master of Computer Science or PhD program in the Faculty of Computer Science at Dalhousie University.

This is an opportunity to connect with acclaimed faculty members and carry out research to support DeepSense related projects.

Fellowships are suitable for qualified students with a background in computer science or related disciplines.

Fully-funded fellowships include:

Ocean data analytics (DeepSense)
Working in ocean data analytics within DeepSense, an innovation environment that brings together industry with data and ocean scientists to develop commercially-useful predictive models, analytical prototypes, and data-intensive applications for use in the blue economy.

Availability: Master of Computer Science / PhD, Computer Science 

Big geospatial data analytics within the ocean environment (DeepSense) 

Working in ocean data analytics within DeepSense, an innovation environment that brings together industry with data and ocean scientists to develop commercially-useful predictive models, analytical prototypes, and data-intensive applications for use in the blue economy.

Big geospatial data analytics within the ocean environment is a growing area of research – with a need to explore and develop effective methods to integrate acoustic remote sensed data sets with in situ ground validation data sets for the production of thematic seafloor maps for a variety of end use applications (e.g. fisheries management, marine conservation). This area of research requires the development of effective segmentation and classification techniques of the seafloor data sets – with a focus on both unsupervised and supervised classification approaches.
