Summary on Grant Application Form
The proposed Academy for PhD training in statistics is a collaboration between nine prominent UK University statistics research groups, which will deliver a basic core of first-year training to PhD students in statistics (including students of statistical methodology, applied statistics and applied probability) across the UK. This pooling of academic resources will allow us to offer new PhD students from across the UK a systematic, high quality grounding in the most essential mathematical, computational and statistical techniques, as well as authoritative overviews of important areas of statistical research. The proposed Academy thus addresses directly some key concerns of the 2003 EPSRC/CMS International Review of Mathematics, about the breadth and quality of UK PhD training and specifically the chronic shortage of well-trained research statisticians.
