Statistics and Operational Research (STOR-i) MRes
The STOR-i Centre for Doctoral Training offers a unique four year doctoral training programme with a ground-breaking approach to Statistics and Operational Research developed and delivered in partnership with leading industrial partners. There are typically over ten fully funded places available each year.
Continual collaboration and networking with our wide range of industrial partners ensures that this programme will produce a new generation of highly employable researchers equipped with the skills required for effective careers in academia or industry. Some of the UK’s leading companies committed to providing this support include BT, IBM, AstraZeneca, Shell and SSE.
The programme begins with an MRes, which provides a robust grounding in the field and the development of key research skills. You will then identify a research topic and plan your PhD research. You will also develop a versatile skill set including: advanced problem solving, programming, and teamwork, plus, a broad range of presentation and dissemination skills.
