PhD position in “Research Objects for Palliative Care”
A funded PhD opportunity is available to explore how Research Objects can be used to model patients selected for Palliative Care. Research Objects are a linked-data formalism that brings together different types of distributed data, including workflows and process models, into a single, coherent and reusable component that tracks its provenance and evolves over time. Research objects are built on knowledge modelling formalisms such as the W3C standards RDFS and OWL, and can be linked to the numerous medical ontologies already in existence and used extensively by the medical community.
The project is jointly supervised by Dr Valentina Tamma (Computer Science) and Prof Ian Buchan (Institute of Population Health Sciences) at the University of Liverpool. The project description is available at:
This project is funded by the University of Liverpool Doctoral Network in Future Digital Health, successful students will receive a studentship of tuition fees paid at the Home/EU rate for 3.5 years and a stipend of £15,009 per annum for 3.5 years. In addition, students will have access to a research support fund of £1,000 per annum for purchasing equipment, consumables and conference costs co-managed by the academic supervisor. Applications from international students are welcomed, however suitable arrangements will need to be made for the difference between the Home/EU and international rate.
