The Medical Research Council (MRC) Biostatistics Unit (BSU) is one of the largest groups of biostatisticians in Europe, and a major centre for research, training and knowledge transfer in biostatistics. The BSU current research portfolio is organised into four main themes that span the scientific research spectrum from basic science to population health and respond to current scientific needs in biomedicine.

BSU researchers have worked extensively to make inference for complex data accessible to the scientific community and to produce innovative methodology related to trial designs, longitudinal and event history data, meta-analysis of clinical trials, missing data, evidence synthesis in public health and statistical genetics and genomics. We are recognised for our strength in Bayesian inference applied to biomedicine and public health.

The MRC Biostatistics Unit at the University of Cambridge provides an ideal place to commence a career in Biostatistics. Our thriving PhD programme is hugely successful and competition for places is high. The BSU's relaxed yet enthusiastic, dedicated and stimulating environment provides students with the essential tools, both in research and transferrable skills, to set them on their way to a successful career as an independent researcher.

We welcome applications from students who wish to apply innovative statistical methods to real biomedical problems in order to deliver key insights into human health and disease. Three highly competitive fully funded (covering University fees and stipend) three-year studentships will be available from October 2023.
