An exciting new research collaboration between Health Data Research UK and the University of Dundee is funding a UK PhD studentship working in the areas of argumentation and data science; specifically looking at how decisions can be made, shared and collaborated on, in situations where sensitive data may not be able to be fully shared.
The successful applicant will be based at the Centre for Argument Technology (ARG-tech) in Dundee. ARG-tech is a highly interdisciplinary environment, and candidates should be willing to work across traditional disciplinary boundaries. Most recently, we have been working to develop tools supporting decision making across domains including healthcare, intelligence analysis, and law enforcement. Such tools must not only be capable of providing support and insight in high pressure environments but also deal with challenges around data security and the sharing of sensitive information.
