PhD Programme in Digital Health
We are delighted to announce the launch of The Sheffield Children’s Hospital/Insigneo Institute PhD Programme in Digital Health in collaboration with Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital. There are four competition funded studentships in Paediatric Digital Healthcare Technology.
The PhD students will work together in a pioneering cross-disciplinary programme alongside patients, families, clinicians, engineers, computer scientists and other experts to develop new digital platforms and technologies that can address unmet needs in child health.
The research will focus on paediatric clinical care pathways and span the Insigneo Institute’s research themes of Healthcare Data, Artificial Intelligence and Smart Devices and Sensors. It will develop the concepts of:
in paediatric real life healthcare settings with Sheffield Children’s Hospital and in collaboration with Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Funding for these PhDs is provided by the NIHR Great Ormond Street Biomedical Research Centre and Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust as part of their Paediatric Excellence Initiative. The NIHR Great Ormond Street Hospital BRC (GOSH BRC) is a partnership between Great Ormond Street Hospital and the University College London (UCL) Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (ICH). Now it’s in its fourth 5-year term, as part of a wider national collaboration - a BRC National Paediatric Excellence Initiative has been set up between GOSH BRC and children’s hospitals in Birmingham, Sheffield and Liverpool. GOSH BRC’s aim is to transform the health of children, and the adults they will become, by combining cutting edge research methods with world-leading clinical trial expertise, to accelerate discovery of new treatments for children with rare and complex conditions.
There are up to four projects available with a closing date of 14 April 2023. Find out more here: https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/insigneo/vacancies
