PhD Innovation Internships: A New Digital Health Evidence Hub

Hosted by DigitalHealth.London and Zinc

The DigitalHealth.London Generator and Zinc are looking for talented and ambitious PhD students to join us for fixed-term Innovation Internships of approximately three months. Internships will focus particularly on supporting work by the Generator to develop a new national evidence hub for digital health. Interns will, in addition, work directly with digital health start-ups at Zinc, both to strengthen understanding of and practices relating to digital health evidence within those companies, and to feed insights into the evidence requirements of early-stage companies back into the development of the Hub.

Students may apply from a range of academic backgrounds including (but not being limited to): computer sciences; data science; health economics; health policy; health systems research; mathematical modelling; medical or health statistics; and methodology. Whatever their background, applicants should have a demonstrable interest in understanding and using evidence for the efficacy of digital health interventions to enhance healthcare and improve patient outcomes.

Internships will be available from 1st July 2021. We will normally expect placements to be full-time but will accommodate part-time working wherever possible, if visa or other constraints limit students’ ability to undertake full-time work.

Please note: We are only able to host interns whose funding arrangements will cover the costs of their involvement in this placement (e.g. Research Council placements funding).

Closing date: Friday 1 October 2021
