The Horizon Centre for Doctoral Training offers 10-20 places on the four-year research programme, My Life in Data, which focuses on researching personal data and the traces we leave behind. This data is now a major business and societal asset and can reveal a wealth of information about our habits, behaviors, preferences, relationships, and emotions.
The PhD programme accepts applicants from a wide range of backgrounds including computer science, engineering, mathematics, human factors, psychology, sociology, business, geography, social science and the arts.
The course consists of taught modules, annual summer schools, retreats and a three-month internship taken with one of the CDT’s partners organizations.
All home students and others eligible for full funding will receive a stipend, a laptop and their tuition fees paid.
In addition, all agreed research costs will be supported by the CDT.
To apply, you will need a first or upper-second-class honors degree or MSc in a relevant subject.
