STUDY WITH US
EPSRC CDT in Health DATA Science
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Health Data Science is located within the Big Data Institute (BDI). It plays a leading role in training the next generation of health data scientists. Further information.
DPHIL vacancies for admission in october 2023
The DPhil projects available at the Big Data Institute are currently administered by either the Nuffield Department of Population Health (NDPH) or the Nuffield Department of Medicine (NDM).
For more information on 2023 DPhil projects, please contact individual researchers within the BDI and/or the associated departments.
Graduate student opportunities at the BDI
The Oxford Big Data Institute (BDI) aims to become a leading, international hub for biomedical data science and analysis and a strong, cutting edge graduate programme is a core, intrinsic part of making the Institute a success. Our programme is designed to attract the keenest scientific minds from all over the world. It represents an excellent opportunity and path for motivated, curious and talented individuals to pursue their academic goals.
There are a number of ways you can obtain a DPhil degree in Biomedical Data Science through studying with us:
- You can apply through the formal routes of any of our associated departments and institutes (NDM, NDPH, IBME, Statistics, NDOG, Computer Science) by checking that the supervisors you choose have a BDI affiliation. As with all applications you will apply through the Oxford central graduate admissions.
- Alternatively, you can reach out to PIs at BDI and informally inquire whether they have any DPhil places available outside of the annual departmental application routes (usually through grant funding).
At present, the BDI is hosting ~30 DPhil students from a range of disciplines at various stages of their programs. The students are a core component of BDI’s diversity, both adding to our international atmosphere and representing our diversity in educational backgrounds and areas of expertise.
BDI Summer Internship Programme
Students will work remotely with health data scientists at the BDI to get a flavour of the breadth of research being undertaken at this interdisciplinary institute. Open to applications from second or third year undergraduate students.
