The Data Lab: PhD Programme
The Data Lab Innovation Centre has been created to generate economic and social value to Scotland through the application of data science. We will deliver this through a combination of collaborative innovation, education and community building across universities, industry and the public sector.
A key activity of the Data Lab’s education remit is to support industrially relevant applied research in data science. We are therefore delighted to announce support for a number of PhDs during 2015 and a larger programme beyond this.
The Data Lab will support up to three new industrially relevant PhDs to be commenced before the end of January 2016. Funding up to 50% of the PhD cost will be provided with the remainder to be provided by an industry (or public sector) partner. We request applications from academic supervisors who have either a proposed project with an agreed industry and/or public sector partner or who are actively engaged with a partner to define a project. To register interest:
1. Complete the 1 page expression of interest (EOI) form.
2. Send the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org
3. The closing date for EOIs is Friday 21st August.
4. The Data Lab Education Board will review all EOIs and invite successful applicants to complete a full proposal.
The Data Lab has funding for over 20 research degrees beyond 2015. We are currently scoping a programme that may include, in addition to PhD support, applied research through an engD (or similar) with teaching delivered from a number of partner universities. Please contact email@example.com to register interest in contributing to this programme.
