Applications are invited for a number of PhD funding opportunities (two EPSRC studentships and two internally-funded Teaching Assistantships) to conduct research in a branch of probability or statistics based in the UCL Department of Statistical Science, commencing in September 2019.
The EPSRC studentships will be 4 years in duration (or 6 years for part-time candidates) and cover tuition fees, an annual stipend (£17,009 in 2019/20) 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 have been ordinarily resident in the UK for 3 years prior to the start of the studentship. Further details concerning the regulations on student eligibility are available on the EPSRC website.
The Teaching Assistantships will be 3.5 years in duration (or 5.5 years for part-time candidates) and cover tuition fees (one at the UK/EU rate and one up to the overseas rate), an annual stipend (£17,009 in 2019/20) and a small allowance for consumables. The Teaching Assistants will spend 6 months of their time teaching (spread across the 3.5 years) and devote the remainder to undertaking their research.
The following projects are available (outline descriptions are provided in a separate pdf document).
Candidates should explain in their covering letter which of these projects is of interest to them (please select at least one and up to three projects, in ranked order of preference). Alternatively, a candidate may propose their own topic, provided that it has already been discussed with a prospective supervisor in the department.
The requirement for admission to the MPhil/PhD in Statistical Science is a 1st class or high upper 2nd class Bachelor’s degree, or a Master’s degree with merit or distinction, in Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science, or a related quantitative discipline. Overseas qualifications of an equivalent standard are also acceptable. Further details can be found on the Departmental website.
