Department of Mathematical Sciences

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Statistical Applied Mathematics (SAMBa)

Your opportunity to be part of a future generation of interdisciplinary mathematicians, working in emerging fields at the interface of statistics with applied and computational mathematics






SAMBa builds on, and brings together, research carried out throughout the Department of Mathematical Sciences, working in collaboration with industry, policy-makers, and academics from other disciplines.



SAMBa offers a four-year doctoral training programme in statistical applied mathematics. Students undertake rigorous research in a world-class environment, and become leading problem solvers, able to work flexibly across disciplines.

Studentship opportunities






At least 10 fully-funded studentships are offered through SAMBa starting in October each year. Opportunities are also available through direct applications to the department, including in collaboration with our industry partners.


Equality, diversity & inclusion






We believe all talented mathematicians should be able to pursue studies in mathematics. Diversity is an essential component of SAMBa's success and ensures we deliver the best research and training experience.
