Statistics and Operational Research (STOR-i) PhD
The STOR-i Doctoral Training Centre offers a unique four year doctoral training programme with a ground breaking approach to Statistics and Operational Research developed and delivered with leading industrial partners.
Approximately ten EPSRC studentships are awarded each year for STOR-i programmes, covering fees and an enhanced stipend. These are awarded subject to eligibility conditions.
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 Shell, Unilever and BT.
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.
The remaining three years will be spent working on the PhD project guided by appropriate supervisory teams, with the option of taking taught programmes in transferable skills to increase employability.
