The department of Statistics at the University of Warwick is holding an open day for prospective PhD students on 4 December 2019, starting at 2pm (with free lunch at 1pm). In the Mathematical Sciences Building common room (room MB1.02). The Director of Graduate Studies, Professor Mark Steel, and the PhD admissions tutors Professors Martyn Plummer and Barbel Finkelstadt Rand will give short presentations about what it means to do a PhD, what it means to do it at Warwick, the benefits of a PhD degree, and the application process.

Subsequently there will be an informal meeting, during which students have the possibility to ask questions and find out more about the different PhD opportunities at Warwick Statistics; in fact, we offer a very broad range of possibilities, giving a lot of choice for potential applicants. Current members of staff will be invited to participate, to discuss potential projects.

UK travel expenses will be covered by the Department of Statistics (standard class travel by public transport with pre-booked tickets). Please register if interested in this event.

h4vmWhen visiting Warwick last week, I stayed in one of the “houses for visiting mathematicians”, built in the late 1960’s for this purpose by architect William Howell and now listed. h5mI particularly liked the 60’s functional-minimalist design of the house, all bricks and curves and flat roof, the structure of the five houses around the central oak, in relative isolation from the rest of the campus, and the blackboards in the “working” bedroom… And I hope I can stay there again on my next visits.h6m
