The MRC Harwell Institute and Oxford Big Data Institute (BDI), University of Oxford, are offering two PhD studentships for collaborative projects between the two institutes. The students will benefit from being located at the BDI, while spending two days per week at the MRC Harwell Institute and will be jointly supervised by a supervisor from each institution. 

The MRC Harwell Institute is a world leader in large scale functional studies, including the International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC) and is the NIH funded Data Coordination Centre for the IMPC, collecting and analysing data from 10 centres around the world.
