  • Full or part time
  • Application Deadline
    Thursday, December 26, 2019
  • Funded PhD Project (UK Students Only)
    Funded PhD Project (UK Students Only)

Project Description

Here is an exciting opportunity to study the development of complex predictive models which could lead to entirely new approaches in Big Data Analytics.
The selected candidate will apply their technical and computational skills and ambition to develop advanced predictive models to better understand the talent pipeline using techniques such as Machine Learning and Neural Networks. This research opportunity, will allow the student to develop transferable knowledge and skills in this most exciting and active field of Data Science.

Programme of research:

Talent Intuition helps companies make better informed strategic decisions. They offer a combination of tools for sourcing external talent data as well as bespoke people intelligence consultancy. This research aims to exploit the external talent data to help inform on how businesses should shape strategy, reduce risk and gain a competitive edge. It will look to utilise the latest advanced technologies to manipulate millions of data points and thousands of sources to help better understand talent supply and demand both nationally and internationally.

The main work of the PhD will be to develop a predictive model to understand the talent pipeline. The work will determine the best way to extract and then classify features obtained from the data such as gender, ethnicity and age; and support the implementation of such algorithms into a real-time system.
The algorithms developed during the project will provide a starting point for future research capacity into the direction of Machine Learning and Neural Network Analysis to better understand the Talent market.
