Update: 2023 Applications for NHS England PhD Data Science Internships

We're pleased to say, that after some delay, applications were opened on the 4th December with a closing date of midday on the 17th December 2023. Interviews will take place across the 8th to 12th January with the first projects starting in mid-Feb till early July.

NHS England Data Science PhD Internship

Our internships are aimed at current PhD students looking for an industrial placement of around five months with the right to work in the UK. The projects are focussed on innovation, in particular around getting the most value out of NHS data.

The projects often have a focus on emerging data science techniques and so we advertise mainly to data science programmes, however previous interns have come from other disciplines such as clinical, mathematics, computer science and bioinformatics, which have added huge value through the range of approaches and knowledge.
