  • Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)
    Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

This is a funded PhD, including a generous stipend and tuition fees, with well-resourced circumstances for a successful scholarship.
Here is an exciting opportunity to study the development of complex predictive models which could lead to entirely new approaches in Big Data Analytics.

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.
