This four-year funded doctoral programme provides an in-depth training for graduates interested in bringing their numerical and computational skills to health data science.
Applications for our first cohort starting in October 2020 are open now.
Who are we looking for?
We’re 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, computing) and learn new skills within the health and biomedical communities, so that together you can undertake ground-breaking research.
Professor Peter Diggle, Director of HDR UK/Turing Wellcome PhD Programme in Health Data Science at Health Data Research UK: “This PhD programme is a big step forward in our ambition to meet the UK’s need for trained health data scientists.”
Dr Christopher Yau, Turing Fellow and co-director of the programme, said: “Embedding our PhD students within an extensive cross-sector, multi-disciplinary collaborative network will enable them to address the greatest challenges in implementing health data science at scale.”
