A fully funded PhD studentship jointly funded by Astra Zeneca is available in the Tissue Image Analytics (TIA) Centre at the Computer Science department of the University of Warwick. The studentship covers stipend at the standard RCUK rate, conference travel, essential local compute equipment and Home or Overseas tuition fees depending on the visa status of the selected candidate. The research project at the cutting-edge of computational pathology will explore the boundaries of domain adaptation for deep learning algorithms when applied to the analysis of digitised multi-gigapixel pathology images.
The TIA Centre is a leading research centre in the area of computational pathology and has access to high-performance CPU/GPU computing cluster and several large cohorts of pathology image data with linked clinical and genomic annotations. More information about the centre can be found at: https://warwick.ac.uk/TIA
Ideal candidate will hold a Masters degree in Computer Science or a related discipline, a drive to innovate in applied machine learning and a willingness to cross disciplinary boundaries. Interested candidates are required to send their CV along with academic transcripts and a statement of interest via email with the subject “AZ-TIA PhD studentship” to N.M.Rajpoot@warwick.ac.uk by 12pm on Monday 11 April 2022 – informal queries can also be sent to the same address.
