UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Biomedical Artificial Intelligence

The UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Biomedical Artificial Intelligence is looking for its first cohort of 12 students to start in September 2019. Students will be fully funded for four years (stipend, fees and research support budget).

Building on a tradition of world-leading research and innovation at Edinburgh, our Centre will train a new generation of interdisciplinary scientists who will shape the development of AI within biomedical research over the next decades. Our students will be equipped with all the technical skills to realise biomedical breakthroughs through AI while anticipating and addressing the societal issues connected with their research.

Training programme

The CDT programme follows 1+3 format. In Year 1 you will study towards a Master by Research, undertaking a number of taught courses and research projects. In Year 2-4 you will propose and pursue an interdisciplinary PhD project under the joint supervision of an AI expert and an application domain expert.

Throughout the programme, there will be plenty of opportunities to showcase your work at local, national and international conferences and events. You will also undertake research visits and internships with our partners.
