The Dept of CS at Oxford has just advertised up to 15 DPhil (Oxford's PhD) scholarships to start in Oct 2017. I would be very happy to see applications from strong students in functional programming among those scholarships. If you'd like to discuss, please get in touch. In particular, if you were at PLMW at ICFP on Sunday, please speak to me in person - I am also at ICFP, leaving on Sunday.

The Department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford is delighted to invite applications for up to 15 fully-funded DPhil (Oxford’s PhD) scholarships tenable from 1st October 2017.
We will be considering students for Oxford-Google DeepMind Graduate Scholarships, EPSRC Scholarships, Clarendon Scholarships, Oxford Wolfson Marriott Graduate Scholarship and departmental funding.
The University of Oxford is consistently ranked amongst the very best Computer Science departments in the world, for both teaching and research. We are committed to attracting the world’s most talented students and working with them to continue the success of the department. The topics for the studentships are open, but should relate to the interests of one of the Department’s research areas: Algorithms & Complexity Theory, Artificial Intelligence, Automated Verification, Computational Biology, Foundations, Logic & Structures, Information Systems, Machine Learning, Multi-Agent Systems, Programming Languages, Security, Semantics and Software Engineering. We also encourage applications in cross disciplinary areas such as Linguistics, Biology, Medicine and Quantum Foundations & Quantum Computation.
The studentships are for three years and are open to students of any nationality. Each studentship will cover university and college fees with a stipend of at least £14,296 per year.
Applicants are normally expected to have, or be predicted to achieve, a first-class or a strong upper second-class grade in either (i) a four-year undergraduate degree (with integrated masters) in a relevant subject (or equivalent international qualifications), or (ii) a three-year BSc/BA degree followed by excellent (distinction) performance in a master's degree in a relevant subject.
