UCL's Centre for Doctoral Training in Data Intensive Science


Centre for Doctoral Training in Data Intensive Science

The UCL Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Data Intensive Science (DIS) is STFC's first-ever supported CDT. The Centre was established in 2017 and carries out research primarily in STFC's flagship DIS projects in Particle Physics and Astronomy, which have been at the forefront of DIS research for several decades and provide the ideal training ground for DIS for PhD students in this space.

Data Intensive Science encompasses a wide range of areas in the field of 'big-data', including the collection, storage and analysis of large datasets, as well as the use of complex models, algorithms and machine learning techniques to interpret the data. 

PhD Application Deadlines:

Make sure to get in before the application deadline at 10am on the 3rd of February 2023, with interviews taking place around mid-February 2023. Find out more and study with us...


We are always pleased to hear from potential students who may wish to pursue a PhD programme with the CDT DIS. Please get in touch with our admissions tutor for expert information on our programmes. However, if you are unsure who to contact at the Centre, please forward us an email using the general enquires email.

Future leaders in both academia and industry will come from the CDT. If you would like to become a partner, please enquire about becoming a partner and shaping the future by clicking on 'Industry Partner' for more information.
