The PhD Programme at the Imaging and Machine Learning Research School

The following is an outline of the study activities offered to all students enrolled at the Imaging and Machine Learning Research School (IMLRS). 

Annual Summer School

PhD students at the IMLRS are encouraged to participate in one imaging or machine learning related summer school per year. Summer school is considered an obvious possibility for fostering an active research environment. The IMLRS will strive to partake in the organization of one summer school per year, working closely with the collaborators of the IMLRS.

PhD Courses

The IMLRS will aim at hosting two annual PhD courses, mostly in the form of one week intensive teaching, based on lectures by invited speakers. The research focus of the PhD courses are guided by the school board. In addition to the courses hosted by the IMLRS, PhD students are required to take the course Introduction to University Pedagogy (IUP) as well as Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR). It is strongly recommended to take a course on scientific writing.

Network Events

There will be at least one annual network event, hosted by the IMLRS. The network events will typically be focused on carreer opportunities for the IMLRS PhD students, such as post doc funding, entrepreneurship, industrial research and likewise. The events will be centered around invited speakers and supplemented with a lunch or dinner arrangement.

The recommended structure for a three year PhD study at the IMLRS is as follows:
