Working with Postgraduates
Postgraduates add value to the research culture of industrial partners through projects and studentships. Getting involved with PhD students can be rewarding by expanding horizons in research and taking on new ideas.
Propose a project
Postgraduate research students are encouraged to take up internships for up to 6-months, either as part of their 4-year research programme, or by taking time out to work as an employee of an external organisation. For more information about promoting opportunities to PhD students, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Supervised PhD projects
Our PhD students are highly skilled and trained in statistical methodologies and applied probability. The largest PhD programme in the School is Compass CDT: the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Computational Statistics and Data Science. We recruit to co-created and co-funded research projects that span a 4-year PhD. The research topic is offered by the industry partner and the supervision is shared between them and the academic supervisor.
Get involved in workshops and events
Data workshops and ‘Datathon’ events
The School of Mathematics works with partners to collaborate on ‘Datathon’ style workshops: a sprint-style event based on a real-world or commercial problem. This is a great way to discover how undergraduate and PhD students can use novel mathematical techniques to solve your organisations data problems. Workshops can be targeted at undergraduate or postgraduate abilities.
Our DataScience@work seminar invites speakers from industry to give PhD students an insight into what life is like as a data scientist in industry, with a networking session after the talk, offering the opportunity to engage with research students and academics on technical discussions.
We develop training events for our postgraduate students that are tailored to their needs and the needs of their potential future employers. We welcome and encourage speakers on general topics such as communication, project management and equity, diversity and inclusion.
