Data Science PhD and EngD funding call opens!

Posted on October 27, 2016

The Data Lab is supporting up to twelve new industrially relevant PhD or EngD projects. Funding for up to 50% of the PhD cost will be provided, with the remainder to be matched by an industry (or public / third sector) partner. We are currently looking for applications from academic supervisors who have either a proposed project with an agreed industry and/or public sector partner, or who are actively engaged with a partner to define a project.

To find out more read our guidance document.

To apply, please complete the PhD / EngD Project Application form. You can find guidance on how to complete the application questions here.

The closing date for this round is 17:00 on Friday 6th January 2017. If you miss this, don’t worry. A second round will start in April 2017.

If you have an idea for a PhD or EngD project but you do not yet have a University Partner or an Industry Sponsor, we can help match you with possible partners.

If you are a University seeking to collaborate with an Industry Sponsor, please complete and submit our Academic application form.

If you are an Industry Sponsor seeking to collaborate with a University, please complete and submit our Industry application form. Have a look at our list of project opportunities, to find out if you could collaborate in one of projects already suggested by academics at Scottish universities.

If you have any questions, please contact Joshua Ryan-Saha - Skills Manager
