Algorithmic gender bias in health and social care
Project in brief

Applications are invited for an interdisciplinary four-year PhD studentship at the Centre for Digital Media Cultures and the Centre for Applied Data Analytics at the University of Brighton. The successful candidate will join an internationally recognised team of researchers to investigate the ways in which algorithmic gender bias occurs, and understand how it can be mitigated against, in the specific context of health and social care (H&SC) provision.
