PhD Studentship in Medical Education, Keele University, UK

Join an ambitious team at the UK’s leading campus-based university to complete a project that combines education, psychology and medicine.

Applicants should have a good first degree (2:1 or above) in a relevant discipline and a Masters degree in a related discipline is desirable. Funding is available for three years to cover fees for PhD registration (2018/19 home/EU rates: £4,260) and a research studentship stipend of currently £14,777 per annum for 2018/19. Non-EU students would be required to pay the balance (currently approximately £11,200 per annum) of the overseas fees themselves. The post will be shared between the internationally renowned institute for Primary Care and Health Sciences (iPCHS), and the Keele’s Medical School Education Research Group (MERG).

The project:
Accurate assessment of the clinical skills of trainee healthcare professionals is vital for both patient safety and educational development and fairness. Current assessment approaches rely on observation and judgement by professionals but are limited by problematic variability in scores. This PhD will contribute to the growing field of “Assessor Cognition” in medical education. Several studies have shown that recently-observed performances influence examiners’ judgements, and may influence their attention. This has lead to pragmatic suggestions that observing “benchmarking” videos prior to examining may direct assessors’ attention and result in more consistent judgements. Despite this, little prior work has investigated whether or how benchmarking influences assessors’ attention and what impact this has on their judgements.

The programme of study will use an initial qualitative think-aloud based approach to study the influence of benchmarking performances on assessors’ attention. It will then use experimental methods to test the influence of mediating factors. Finally, in either the later stages of the PhD or in follow-up work, it will trial an intervention based on benchmarking in the context of a medical student Objective Structured Clinical Exam (OSCE). As a result the PhD’s findings are anticipated to directly inform current practice, and be of interest to national and international audiences and policy makers. The candidate will be supported, but given considerable latitude, to develop the research approach in terms of theory, focus and methods.

School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science PhD Studentship, Queen Mary University of London, UK

PhD Studentship in When Machine Learning Meets Big Data in Wireless Communications

Recent several decades have witnessed the exponential growth in commercial data services, which lead to step in the so-called big data era. The pervasive increasing data traffic present both the imminent challenges and new opportunities to all aspects of wireless system design, such as efficient wireless caching, drone base station deployment and adaptive nonorthogonal multiple access design. Machine learning, as one of the most promising artificial intelligence tools, has been invoked in many areas both in the academia and industry. Nevertheless, the application of machine learning in wireless communication scenarios is still in its infancy, which motivates to develop this phD project. The aim of this phD project is to use social media data to predict the requirements of mobile users for improving the performance of wireless networks.

Qualifications:
All applicants should hold a masters level degree at first /distinction level in Computer Science or Electronic Engineering (or a related discipline). Applicants should have a good knowledge of English and ability to express themselves clearly in both speech and writing. The successful candidate must be strongly motivated for doctoral studies, must have demonstrated the ability to work independently and to perform critical analysis.

Candidates are asked to possess fundamental knowledge and skills in two or more of the following areas:

  • Excellent background in communication theory and signal processing algorithms. Good knowledge of emerging 5G and IoT techniques, such as NOMA, wireless caching and mobile computing, UAV, V2X, etc.
  • Prior experience/education in both theory and practice of machine learning.
  • Hands on experience using one of the following deep learning libraries: Tensorflow, PyTorch, Theano or similar.
  • Good coding skills. (Python and C++ are considered a plus).
