Get an MSc student
We are looking for companies with an idea for a project. This is a great opportunity for you to get access to a data scientist to tackle a real issue in your company.
Complete a Project proposal form with a short description of your project, the background knowledge you require the student to have and the skills that you expect them to develop during your project.
Placement Projects will run for 10-12 weeks between the period of June to August.
To register your interest in taking part in the MSc Placement Programme, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fund a doctoral student or applied project
The Data Lab co-funds industrial doctorate programmes at Scottish Universities, in collaboration with Scottish industry or public sector organisations. These industrial doctorates are designed to support the development of data science talent at a PhD / EngD level, while facilitating collaboration between industry and academia through applied research projects.
If you are a Scottish-based organisation or an academic institution and you are interested in developing a data-driven Industrial Doctorate project, have a look at our current Industrial Doctorates Call for Funding.
We have a “project matching” service with a range of potential PhD / EngD projects suggested by academics from Scottish universities looking for industry partners.
