Following a generous donation by Google, the Department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford is delighted to invite applications for up to 15 fully-funded DPhil (Oxford's PhD) studentships tenable from 1st October 2015. 
 
The University of Oxford is consistently ranked amongst the very best Computer Science departments in the world, for both teaching and research. We are committed to attracting the world's most talented students and working with them to continue the success of the department.
 
The Computational Cardiovascular Science group within the Department of Computer Science and the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Oxford does cutting edge research in Computational Medicine.  It combines innovative and state of the art modelling, simulation, imaging and data analysis techniques to integrate and translate information from a range of experimental and clinical data in the context of Cardiovascular Medicine and Physiology. Our group is part of the BHF Centre of Research Excellence at Oxford  and our research is funded by a number of funding agencies and pharmaceutical companies with additional research collaborations with regulatory agencies. The topics for the studentships are open, but should relate to the interests of the Computational Cardiovascular Science group.
 
The studentships are for three years and are open to students of any nationality.  Each studentship will cover university and college fees with a stipend of at least £13,863 per year. Applicants are normally expected to have, or be predicted to achieve, a first-class or a strong upper second-class grade in either (i) a four-year undergraduate degree (with integrated masters) in a relevant subject (or equivalent international qualifications), or (ii) a three-year BSc/BA degree followed by excellent (distinction) performance in a master's degree in a relevant subject.
