The Data Lab is looking for applications from universities that have a proposed project with an industry or public sector partner.
The current funding call closes on Friday 11th February at 5pm. With limited funding available this is a competitive call and we would expect to make 2 PhD/EngD awards from the call.
Industrial Doctorate Studentships
The Data Lab aims to generate significant economic, social and scientific value to Scotland through the application of data science. To help achieve this, we co-fund Industrial Doctorate studentships, in collaboration with academic institutions and industry, public or third sector partners. These industrial doctorates are designed to support the development of data science talent at a PhD / EngD level, while facilitating collaboration between industry and academia through applied research projects.
For an Industrial Doctorate project to be considered for The Data Lab funding, it must be hosted at a Scottish University and be sponsored by at least one industry, public or third sector sponsor that has an operational base in Scotland. The project must be innovative and have the potential to contribute to positive social/economic impact in Scotland with a focus on innovation in or the application of data science and AI techniques.
Funding for up to 50% of the studentship cost is available (at the UK home rate), with the remainder to be matched by the industry and University sponsors. EU/International students may be recruited to a studentship where the remainder of the costs are met by another party (e.g Industry partner, University).
Current call closing date: 17:00 Friday 11 February 2022
