Applications are invited for one (1) Departmentally-funded Teaching Assistantship opportunity for a PhD student 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; environmental statistics; general theory and methodology; multivariate and high dimensional data. Research often cuts across these areas. Much of this work is interdisciplinary and involves collaborations within and outside UCL.

The Teaching Assistantship is open only to candidates with Home (UK) fees. It can involve any topic within the Statistical Science remit. It will run for 3.5 years (or 6 years for part-time students) and cover tuition fees, with an annual maintenance stipend (£19,062 in 2022/23, rising with inflation each year) 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.

The additional requirements for appointment as a Postgraduate Teaching Assistant are detailed in the PGTA person specification.
