An open day to find out about the STOR-i

Wednesday 17 March 2010, 1000-1530
Lancaster University

The STOR-i DTC is a pioneering new 4 year Statistics and Operational Research PhD programme with substantial Government and industry backing. For October 2010 entry we have 10 fully-funded studentships, with up to 50% more funding than standard PhDs (equating to a competitive graduate salary).

STOR-i offers you a new style of PhD training, which includes: being part of a learning group, co-operating and interacting with like-minded peers; working directly with leading industry partners, opening up real potential for rapid career progression; making a real

scientific and industrial impact with your research.

To find out more - come along to our open day. The programme for the day will include talks describing:

  • The STOR-i DTC
  • What doing a PhD is really like
  • Describing different research project areas
  • Career opportunities in Statistics and Operational Research given by speakers from industry

There will also be time to talk to some of our current PhD students, tour the campus and meet with members of staff. For those who have already applied for a place at the STOR-i DTC there will also be short interviews.

We have funds available to cover reasonable travel costs for students meeting the eligibility conditions for funding. For those coming from further afield, we will also be able to arrange accommodation, again subject to you meeting the eligibility conditions.

Places are limited so apply early by sending your CV to
