News and events
This page is updated regularly with the latest news and events from the ITMAT Data Science Group.
Imperial Students: Please contact us if you are willing to dive into a health-data data science project. We have multiple opportunities for students to be trained on data science exploration (machine learning, all health data type, bioinformatics,...).
Post-docs, fellows: we are always happy to discuss opportunities to support applications for fellowships to host you in our group. We can assist in write-up to work with us and connecting you to the right person within Imperial Faculties, in particular Medicine.
