Grant Description

Summary and Description of the grant

The Lancaster Centre for Doctoral Training in Statistics and Operational Research (STOR) will meet the current critical need to address the national skills shortage within both disciplines. These complementary areas of mathematics underpin a wide-range of industries including defence, healthcare, finance, energy and transport. Thus, the development of this integrated, industrially-focused doctoral training centre is key for national competitiveness. Combined with the input of our industrial partners, the formation of the centre will provide a research training environment focused on methodological research motivated and applied to important real scientific/industrial applications. The centre will be designed to attract, train and nurture the analytic research capacity of the UK's strongest numerate graduates, thus developing a generation of doctoral scientists capable of applying their research skills to industrial applications through either academic or industrial career paths. Key aims of centre are:(i) to increase national doctoral recruitment into STOR through a programme attractive to substantial numbers of students outside those who would normally consider doctoral study in the area; (ii) to train graduates capable of producing research of high quality and with major industrial and scientific impact;(iii) to produce highly employable graduates equipped with the broad skills needed for rapid career progression in academia or industry;(iv) to stimulate research at the interface of STOR through doctoral projects which span the disciplines. The long-term vision for this centre is that it will grow into a national centre of excellence for a collaborative doctoral training environment in STOR between academia and industry, leading to a sustainable model for better exploitation of research.
