Academic supervisor: Prof Ilan Davis (DPhil in Biochemistry); IBM co-supervisor: Dr Flaviu Cipcigan
This project aims to build a new standard for holding multi-dimensional and multimodality informatics and bio-imaging data on GPUs, as a model for clinical genetic and diagnostic data for near instant access and exploration. We aim to develop new paradigms for user interface and conduct exploration of these integrated data sets using the latest cloud computing, gaming technologies and machine learning methods.
DPhil in Computational Discovery
The DPhil in Computational Discovery is a multidisciplinary programme spanning projects in Advanced Molecular Simulations, Machine Learning and Quantum Computing to develop new tools and methodologies for life sciences discovery.
This innovative course has been developed in close partnership between Oxford University and IBM Research. Each research project has been co-developed by Oxford academics working with IBM scientists. Students will have a named IBM supervisor/s and many opportunities for collaboration with IBM throughout the studentship.
Applicants who are offered places on the DPhil in Computational Discovery will be fully funded. As a minimum, the funding package will include fees at the Home/EU rate, and a stipend for UK students only at the standard Research Council rate (currently £15,009 pa) for the duration of fee liability (four years).
Applications must be received by 12 midday (UK time) on Friday 24 January 2020.
