Duration – 36 months
We welcome applications from people with a variety of backgrounds including those with computing science, mathematics or statistics, psychology or health services research or business and management backgrounds for a 3-year PhD in health and care data analytics.
You need to be both an independent worker but also a team player. We are a strong multidisciplinary internationally recognised team of digital health and analytics researchers in the in Computer and Information Sciences and Maths and Statistics at University of Strathclyde. We have a variety of background but all have a common interest of designing, developing and delivering accessible solutions to real world health and social care problems using data in meaningful ways.
The PhD will involve working directly with our partners in Scottish Government on the real-world application of data science and data analytics for health and social care. You will be expected to conduct novel research into existing and future datasets and methods and tools for understanding how to better plan and deliver telehealth and telecare nationally. This might involve creating platforms for manipulating datasets, producing novel visualisations tools, and generating and testing prediction models or algorithms (such as likelihood of hospitalisation after a fall in a certain age group or geography for example).
