PhD Studentship - AI-enabled Patient and Service Monitoring for Resilient Critical Care - University of York

This exciting PhD studentship opportunity will contribute to the TAS Node in Resilience's research by exploring how AI models could be developed, assured and deployed in complex hospital settings in order to explore the system response to patient deterioration, and the resilience of AI used as part of a complex adaptive sociotechnical system like the inpatient side of an acute hospital. The aim of the project is to improve the resilience of the healthcare service and help to reduce the number of avoidable adverse outcomes, even under conditions of operational uncertainty and change. The PhD student will have the unique opportunity to collaborate with a multidisciplinary team from the disciplines of Computer Science, Engineering, and Clinical Medicine, and with stakeholders ranging from developers and clinicians to regulators and end users. Candidates are invited to submit a short research proposal (maximum 1500 words) aligned with the topic of the PhD project, and a statement of purpose explaining how their competencies and previous experiences makes them an appropriate candidate for this position.

PhD Studentship - Human Factors of trustworthy autonomous transport systems - University of Southampton

The University of Southampton are inviting applications for a PhD studentship in Human Factors within the Transportation Research Group as part of the EPSRC funded Trustworthy Autonomous Systems project.

This PhD will sit within the Human Factors Engineering team within the Transportation Research Group and will focus on issues relating to trust in autonomous transportation systems. The scope of the project can be tailored to suit the interests of the applicant, but possible ideas include looking at the interaction between autonomous vehicles and vulnerable road users, such as active travellers. We are also interested in exploring new methods and developing a tool kit to assess Human Factors in relation to autonomous systems. Furthermore, there is an interest in reviewing the equality, diversity and inclusivity challenges within the transport domain and the development of autonomous systems.
