Farr Institute of Health Informatics Research PhD Studentships

The Farr Institute of Health Informatics Research is funding a doctoral training programme in London in collaboration with UCL, QMUL and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

We are developing coordinated interdisciplinary programmes of research using Electronic Health Records across the areas of:

  • Discovery Science
  • Precision Medicine
  • Public Health
  • Learning Health Systems
  • Citizen Driven Health

Candidates are invited to apply to complete a PhD in one of these areas.

To apply candidates should submit a CV and a one page statement of their research interests. Shortlisted applicants will be interviewed and, if successful, invited to work up a research proposal with a leading Farr Institute academic with a view to starting the PhD in October 2016.

Applicants should possess a good first degree in a relevant discipline and an MSc or substantial experience in computer science, statistics, research methods or bioinformatics.

Please submit your application to Dr Denise Beales, Institute Manager (email: d.beales@ucl.ac.uk).


The studentships cover UK/Home and EU fees and a yearly stipend (for academic year 2016-17: £16,539).

Overseas applicants who are self-funding or in receipt of a scholarship which covers overseas fees are welcome to apply, but are requested to contact the Farr Institute prior to submitting their application.

Closing date for applications is 31 March 2016.
