PhD Studentships in Statistical Science

Updated: 3 months ago
Location: London, ENGLAND
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 16 May 2021

Applications are invited for a number of PhD funding opportunities based in the Department of Statistical Science , UCL.

The Department is among the three largest Statistics groups in the UK with more than 30 academic members of staff. Research in the Department is organised into six themes : biostatistics; computational statistics; economics, finance and business; general theory and methodology; multivariate and high dimensional data; stochastic modelling of complex systems. Research often cuts across these areas. Much of this work is interdisciplinary and involves collaborations within and outside UCL.

Studentships with starting date up to the end of August 2021

Three EPSRC -funded studentships. These can involve any topic within the Statistical Science remit, although applications to the following topics are particularly welcomed:

These studentships will be 4 years in duration (or 6 years for part-time candidates) and cover tuition fees at the UK rate, an annual maintenance stipend (£17,285 in 2020/21, rising with inflation each year) and a small allowance for consumables. To be eligible for a full award, applicants must normally have no restrictions on how long they can stay in the UK and must have been ordinarily resident in the UK for 3 years prior to the start of the studentship. Applications from exceptional candidates who do not meet these criteria will also be considered (as EPSRC allows universities to offer a limited number of studentships with open eligibility).

Studentships with starting date between September 2021 and August 2022

Several (i) EPSRC studentships, and (ii) Departmentally-funded Teaching Assistantships. These can involve any topic within the Statistical Science remit.

The EPSRC studentships will be 4 years in duration (or 6 years for part-time candidates) and cover tuition fees at the UK rate, an annual maintenance stipend (as per the indicative value given above) and a small allowance for consumables. These studentships are open to both home and international candidates, but the total number of international awards is capped.

The Teaching Assistantships will be 3.5 years in duration (or 6 years for part-time students) and cover tuition fees up to the Overseas rate, an annual maintenance stipend (indicative value above) and a small allowance for consumables. Full-time students will spend 6 months of their time teaching (spread across the 3.5 years) and devote the remainder to undertaking their research. These studentships are open to both UK and Overseas candidates.
