5 November 2020

HDR UK and The Alan Turing Institute are delighted to announce that applications are now open for the next PhD Programme in Health Data Science cohort, starting in 2021.

The programme is a collaboration between Health Data Research UK, The Alan Turing Institute and run in partnership with seven leading UK universities and is funded by the Wellcome Trust.

The four-year funded doctoral programme provides an in-depth training for graduates interested in bringing their mathematical, statistical, and computational skills to health data science.

Applications for our second cohort starting in October 2021 are now open.

Who are we looking for? We are looking for students who want to make a difference. People who want to work together to combine statistics and computation skills within a health setting to overcome existing challenges and look to develop new opportunities.

You will develop your background in quantitative science (e.g. maths, statistics, physics, engineering) and learn new skills within the field.
