5 New PhD Opportunities in the Geographic Data Science Lab

Published on

The ESRC Centre for Data Analytics and Society 2018 cohort

Applications are now open for five new ESRC Centre for Data Analytics and Society PhD projects based at the University of Liverpool.

The projects are all partnered with an external organisation, giving you the opportunity to work closely with industry or public sector bodies.

We are looking for graduates from a wide range of backgrounds with interests in how data can be used to address social science questions using statistical or predictive techniques. You will work with a multi-disciplinary team of supervisors as well as having the opportunity to work with external partners on real life problems.

The programme runs over four years, where you will undertake an MSc in Data Analytics over the first two years which will provide you with the foundation skills to complete your research project as part of the PhD.

Projects will also be advertised at the Universities of Leeds, Manchester and Sheffield.
