How to apply

If you are interested in working on some of the most advanced Research and Development challenges in Data Intensive Science, then a PhD within LIV.INNO might be right for you.

We have a number of PhD studentships starting in 2022, which include a 4-year stipend to support you during your studies.

Prospective students should apply via Liverpool's postgraduate research website for projects at the University of Liverpool (UoL). For projects at Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) please apply via the LJMU's LIV.INNO PhD studentship page.

Please indicate the specific project and/or LIV.INNO scientific work package you would like to apply for; this helps identify projects that are best suited for your research interests. However, general applications will also be considered.

Each project will give you access to LIV.INNO’s comprehensive training in data science, consisting of lectures, seminars, international workshops and schools. You will also get opportunities to contribute to the centre’s outreach activities. Each LIV.INNO student is required to undertake a 6-months placement in industry where you will work on a research challenge outside of your core PhD project. This exciting opportunity will help boost your wider skills and employability.

We welcome and encourage applications from the UK, EU and other parts of the world. We would like to encourage in particular applications from women and other STEM minority groups. LIV.INNO actively helps overcome barriers to access; qualifying students can receive additional funding for research-related travel costs. It is also possible to realize many of our PhD projects part-time, over a longer total period.
