Dear all

I would like to promote an opportunity for a fully funded PhD studentship
available through the Information School, University of Sheffield:

'Mining health information on the Social Web – towards an understanding of
the influence of social media on public healthcare', see details at:

*In short*:
The project will develop natural language processing methods to mine health
related facts mentioned from heterogeneous social media resources, and
integrate and link them in a structured Knowledge Graph (KG). The KG will
capture the health information on the social Web in a structured way,
facilitating complex, structured queries and ultimately enabling the first
crucial steps towards a quantitative and qualitative analysis of health
information from the social Web.

This is a fully funded (tuition + stipend) 3.5 years PhD studentship with
an excellent opportunity to develop knowledge and experience in the area of
health informatics, working with well known scholar such as Professor Peter
Bath. Also that PhD experience is usually counted as real work
experience. *Please
read carefully the 'Eligibility' section before you apply, because EPSRC
typically only funds UK and EU (with constraints) students.*

Please do not hesitate to get in touch for an informal chat if interested.

Kind regards
