Applications are invited for places on the Wellcome Trust-funded ‘Health Data in Practice’ PhD Programme at Queen Mary University of London.
Our 4-year interdisciplinary doctoral training programme adopts a human-centred, contextualised approach to researching health and care data situating your research in the real world of health care practice. It will enable you to draw on concepts, disciplines and methods underpinning algorithmic designs, sensing and data capture, human-interactions, qualitative and quantitative evaluation and decision-making, in real-world settings.
You will develop as a future scientific leader able to apply interdisciplinary perspectives to your research and realise the potential of innovations in health data research for the benefit of patients, the public, health care systems, and society.
Year 1: You will undertake an MRes in Health Data in Practice which will give you a broad knowledge base comprising core modules including health data in practice, qualitative and quantitative research methods; a wide choice of elective modules, as well as a substantial dissertation research project.
Years 2-4: You will co-develop a research project in one of the four thematic areas of the programme. In the final year will have the opportunity to apply to a transition fund which provides up to 9 months support to aid you in your next career steps.
