EPSRC PhD in Computational Statistics and Data Science

A 4-year PhD training programme in the statistical and computational techniques of data science, with partners from across the University of Bristol, industry and government agencies.

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 offers exciting collaborations across medicine, computer science, geography, economics, life and earth sciences, as well as with our external partners who range from government organisations such as the Office for National Statistics, GCHQ and the AWE, to industrial partners such as LV, Improbable, EDF, and Sparx.

Students are co-located with the Institute for Statistical Science in the School of Mathematics, which occupies the Fry Building, a historic building which has undergone a £35 million refurbishment.

Hear from the first two cohorts of COMPASS students at compass.blogs.bristol.ac.uk.


A COMPASS studentship provides four years of tuition fees at the UK student rate, a tax-free stipend of £19,609 per year (plus inflation) for living expenses and a travel allowance to support research related activities. We have 12 of these fully funded studentships available for September 2022. For excellent International/ EU candidates, the CDT may choose to provide open eligibility for up to 30% of the students starting in an academic year. To be considered please apply as early as possible.
