10 funded DPhil places in Statistical Science
Web site:
Application deadline: 22 January; 11 March
EPSRC & MRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Statistical
Science is now inviting applications for 10 fully-funded DPhil
studentships at the University of Oxford and the University of Warwick
to start in October 2016. Students with a strong background in
mathematics and statistics are particularly encouraged to apply.
The CDT focuses on the following research areas:
Research Areas: Computational Statistics; Statistical Methodology;
Machine Learning ; Probability ; Statistical Genetics ; Bioinformatics

Successful researchers will be able to program on distributed
high-performance computing and communicate effectively with β€˜data
owners’ (before and after the data collection). They will use these
skills and this knowledge to develop the new theories, methods and
algorithms needed for the analysis of β€œbig data” on massively parallel
modern computing devices. This will revolutionise the way in which the
science industry and government manipulate and handle massive,
heterogeneous data objects.

As a successful candidate you will be one of 10 students starting a 4
year programme in October 2016. You will join a cohort based training
environment that makes statistics and peer to peer learning a priority.
Research training is delivered through eight two-week mini-projects
supplemented by a small number of lectures in your first year. You will
be open to exploring different learning styles and ready to embrace a
multi-disciplinary approach to learning. In addition to the technical
training provided by our internationally renowned research staff, we
will aim to broaden your skills in order to flourish in an industry,
academic and government environment. This covers scientific writing,
presentation skills, group work, time management/planning and working
with industry. This whole training package will prepare you for your
remaining 3 years DPhil research in scalable statistical methods at
Oxford or Warwick.

Because of constraints from funding agencies, there are different rules
for funding depending on your fee status:
* UK and EU students: Full funding (fees and stipend) is available for
successful candidates.
* Non-EU students: Full funding may be available for successful
candidates. These studentships are highly sought after.
For details see:

There are two deadlines for applications:
* 22 January 2016 -- all UK and EU applicants should apply by this
deadline for full consideration
* 11 March 2016 -- any remaining UK and EU studentships will be
allocated in the third round
See for further
information and application forms.

The University of Oxford and The University of Warwick is a member of
the Athena SWAN Charter and holds an institutional Bronze/Silver Athena
SWAN award respectively, in recognition of its efforts to introduce
organisational and cultural practices that promote gender equality and
create a better working environment for both women and men. Both
Departments of Statistics in Oxford and Warwick have Bronze awards.
