Award of funding for UCL/EPSRC Mathematical & Statistical Sciences Doctoral Training Programme

29 May 2021

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) has awarded UCL funding for a new Doctoral Training Programme (DTP) in Mathematical and Statistical Sciences, with intakes for the next two academic years in the first instance. The DTP will be run jointly by the UCL Departments of Mathematics and Statistical Science, as a key step towards the realisation of a new collaborative institution for the powerhouse of Mathematical Science at UCL.

The UCL Institute of Mathematics and Statistical Sciences (IMSS) aims at co-locating and expanding the two UCL departments of Mathematics and Statistical Science to bring UCL into the top 20 institutions for mathematical sciences, globally. IMSS will act as the agglomeration hub and London's leading centre for research, teaching and collaboration in mathematics and statistics, establishing UCL as a global leader and outward-looking centre for the mathematical sciences and its applications.

This new exciting DTP helps us achieve these objectives by allowing collaborative research across the two departments – as well as other parts and research groups within UCL – and is part of the key strategic expansion of national and public funding for mathematical sciences.
