HDR UK/Turing PhD Programme in Health Data Science

This four-year PhD programme in Health Data Science, led by Health Data Research UK (HDR UK) and supported by the Wellcome Trust, includes one year of foundational training followed by a three-year thesis project.

The programme is a collaboration between HDR UK, The Alan Turing Institute and seven partner universities: the Universities of Birmingham, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Manchester, Oxford, University College London, and Queen's University Belfast.

The programme's underlying philosophy is that health data science requires a combination of expertise spanning three fundamental areas: statistical, computational and health sciences.

We wish to recruit graduates from the mathematical, statistical and computational sciences who are motivated to further develop and apply their methodological expertise within a multidisciplinary health research setting.

Studentships offer the following:

  • tax-free stipend;
  • PhD registration fees at the UK student rate (and college fees where required);
  • research expenses and travel costs;
  • significant support for training and help to transition to the next step of your career at the end of your PhD.

The application deadline is Monday 11 December 2023.
