Train with a team of world-leading researchers, industrial leaders, and government experts in a 4-year PhD programme in statistical and computational techniques of data science at the University of Bristol.
This bespoke four-year PhD programme enables students to develop their knowledge and capability to pursue a cross-disciplinary PhD programme, under the supervision of internationally leading researchers, in a sector with a recognised skills gap.
The cross-disciplinary programme allows collaboration with internal partners across medicine, computer science, geography, economics, life and earth sciences, and external partners such as GCHQ, Office for National Statistics, Trainline and GSK Students will be co-located with the Institute for Statistical Science in the School of Mathematics, which is shortly to occupy the Fry Building, a historic building which has undergone a £35 million refurbishment.
A COMPASS studentship provides four years of tuition fees at the UK/EU student rate, a tax-free stipend of £18,777 per year for living expenses and a travel allowance to support research related activities. Applications are welcomed from international students.
