About the Project

UCL Department / Division Computer Science
Location of position London
Duration of Studentship 3 years
Stipend £17,285 per annum

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in the UCL Department of Computer Science starting in September 2020 or soon thereafter. The appointments will be part of the CHIMERA project, one of four national EPSRC-funded Maths in Healthcare Hubs announced in March 2020. Successful candidates will be admitted to the MPhil/PhD programme in Computer Science.

The Project

This appointment is part of the CHIMERA project (Collaborative Healthcare Innovation through Mathematics, EngineeRing and AI), one of four national Maths in Healthcare Hubs announced in March 2020. CHIMERA is a multidisciplinary Hub which brings together experts in mathematics, statistics, data science and machine learning, with unique, high volume and rich data sets from both adult and paediatric Intensive Care Units provided through embedded Project Partnerships with Great Ormond Street Hospital and University College London Hospital. CHIMERA will deliver new mathematical frameworks combining artificial intelligence and coupled differential equations to learn the biophysical relationships that govern the interdependencies between physiological variables, based on data sets for thousands of patients through these project partners.

CHIMERA will produce world leading mathematics and algorithm development that will also help clinical teams manage critically ill patients.

Person Specification

Applications are sought to support the CHIMERA work package: Learning Biophysical Model Structure and Parameters with Neural Networks. Candidates must have a UK first class or 2:1 honours degree, an MSc, or their international equivalent in physics, engineering, mathematics or a comparable subject. Candidates should have experience in developing machine learning methods for data analysis. It is desirable, although not essential, that the candidate has experience with clinical data and longitudinal models.

Interested candidates should contact Prof Simon Arridge ([Email Address Removed]) to discuss the details of the project.


Application Process

Candidates should apply via UCL website: https://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/graduate/apply specifying the CS MPhil/PhD programme with Professor Arridge as potential supervisor. Please name the CHIMERA project as expected source of funding.


Closing Date: Friday 3rd July 2020
Skype Interview date: Thursday 9th/Friday 10th July 2020
Studentship Start Date: September 2020
