About the Project

Brunel University London (BUL) is recruiting to EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) PhD studentships effective 1 October 2020. Applications are invited for the following specific project called “Automatic Privacy Management Based on Dynamic Consent”.

The successful applicants will join the internationally recognised researchers in the Department of Computer Science.

This exciting research project is focused on improving user experience of consent* in healthcare. The research will explore temporal knowledge representation and reasoning to identify attributes and rules for patients, treatments and consent in particular contexts and how they change with time. Extracted knowledge will be used to create a user-friendly representation of patient consent behaviour, and automatically generate recommendations for user privacy policies.

*Within EU GDPR, consent is one of the legal grounds for processing personal data.

Applicants will be required to demonstrate their ability to think analytically and innovatively; develop software with a working knowledge of data analysis techniques; research, analyse and critically evaluate information and communicate results and findings in research reports.
