Data Science Research Programme
Leiden University's Data Science Research Programme brings together data science with all other academic domains. It makes the unique university data collections available.
Today, more data than ever before are gathered in all scientific fields. Those data could, if opened up, provide researchers with tremendous amounts of useful information.
Joint initiative of seven faculties
The Data Science Research Programme is a joint effort of all seven faculties of the University of Leiden. PhD students are playing key roles within the programme. In total, at least 21 PhD candidates will be appointed. They will work on the development and application of data science in various fields of research at Leiden University.
The PhD candidates will each have two supervisors or co-supervisors, one a specialist in data science, and one from the faculty's research field. The aim is for the programme to have an open structure: besides the PhD candidates, other researchers are very welcome to join in the research and students can work on projects.
