PhD opportunities at the UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training Artificial Intelligence for Healthcare

AI CDT flyerPhD opportunities at the UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training Artificial Intelligence for Healthcare: The UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Artificial Intelligence for Healthcare at Imperial focusses on healthcare applications of core AI to train AI PhDs and Clinical PhD Fellows. We will deliver training integrating the development of technical skills with an appreciation for approaches to human-in-the-Loop AI design that are socially and ethically acceptable. The term “AI” means for us the development of intelligent systems that embody a practical solution. Amongst contemporary AI approaches, Machine Learning methods have shown to yield powerful solutions which work in purely data-driven manners and link via data science to emerging biomedical research methodologies. However, practical solutions involving AI will require a broader approach and we will drive technical innovation by providing broad training for exploitation of multiple technological strategies within the broader realm of AI, including, Machine Learning, Logic-based, Computer Vision or Natural Language Processing methods.

Who should apply? We are looking for graduates who are enthusiastic and strongly motivated to combine their AI-related skills with a strong interest in healthcare and patient treatment. Normally, applicants should have a degree in a relevant scientific or technical discipline, such as computer science, engineering (mechanical, electrical/electronics, bio/biomedical), mathematics, physics, as well as biological sciences, psychology, physiology or medicine. Desirable skills include mathematics, statistics, machine learning, computer vision, deep learning, robotics, natural language processing, human-computer interfaces and software engineering.

How to Apply:  For the Academic Year 2020-21, we have 25+ funded PhD places including clinical PhD Fellows. We are recruiting in two rounds: the application deadline of Round One is 24 December 2019. The application deadline of Round Two will be on 06 February 2020. Please check on our webpage what information and documents must be included in your application. The please apply through the Imperial application portal: the login page and guidance on how to apply can be found on this page:

Funding: Each studentship award covers the tuition fees and a stipend for three years. For non-clinical PhD students, the stipend is paid at the UKRI rate plus London weighting (e.g. in 2019-20 the annual stipend rate was £17,009, tax-free). Clinical PhD Fellows are paid at their current basic clinical salary level, without banding, details tbc.International students (non-UK/EU) are eligible to apply, but please note that funding for international applicants is very limited due residential eligibility criteria, set by UKRI.
