We are recruiting a PhD student to carry out research in partnership with Experian with a focus on data science. Candidates are expected to have a background in Computer science, Statistics, Physics, Social science, Mathematics, Applied Mathematics or Economics. Candidates with backgrounds in other STEM subjects will also be considered if they can demonstrate capabilities in data analytics.
Our EPSRC funded Creating Our Lives in Data programme, aims to establish technologies and methods to enable producers and consumers in the Digital Economy to co-create smarter products in smarter ways, to re-establish trust in the use of personal data.
The Centre brings together leading figures from computing and engineering as well as social sciences, business and humanities from the University of Nottingham; plus researchers from the Centre for Computing and Social Responsibility at De Montfort University. We are co-funded by EPSRC and over 40 industry, third sector and international partners.
Our students are innovating applications across sectors including consumer goods and food, creative industries, transport, high value products, and health and wellbeing – seeking out new synergies between them. We do not expect every student to be an expert in every area: our aim is to train people to work in transdisciplinary teams, ready to become future leaders in industry, the third sector and academia.
Our innovative four year PhD programme combines research, technical and professional skills training, an internship with a partner organisation, and opportunities for international exchanges.
