Microsoft Research sponsored Ph.D. in Estimating the credibility of health information on the Web

A Microsoft Research sponsored Ph.D. scholarship is available to support a Ph.D. thesis on the topic of “Estimating the credibility of health  information on the Web”. The candidate must be an EU citizen to qualify for the studentship. The candidate should have a B.Sc. and preferably an M.Sc. in Computer Science or a closely related subject, and knowledge of machine learning. The Ph.D. student will be jointly supervised by myself (Ingemar Cox) at UCL and Yoram Bacharach at Microsoft Research in Cambridge, UK. The student will be based at UCL but periods of study at MSR Cambridge are expected. Interested candidates should send email to me at UCL.
