Building on a tradition of world-leading research and innovation at the University of 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 gain the skills, knowledge and acumen to realise biomedical breakthroughs through AI while anticipating and addressing the societal issues connected with their research.
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 taster research projects to broaden and refine your skills and explore different research areas. 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, you will be working in a collaborative and stimulating environment, underpinned by cohort-driven activities, joint problem solving and peer support. There will be plenty of opportunities to showcase your work at local, national and international conferences. You will also undertake masterclasses, research visits and internships with our partners.
A UK 2.1 honours degree, or its international equivalent, in computer science, mathematics, physics, engineering or a related discipline.
Applicants from a biomedical or social sciences background with relevant technical experience are also welcome.
