The Biometrika Trust offers two 2 or 3 year research fellowships, for junior researchers in statistical theory and methodology. It is aimed at those among the most outstanding recent PhD graduates who are capable of self-direction.
The fellowships offer an annual salary on the scale £32,958-£37,075 (plus London weighting if appropriate), research support costs of £4000 (2 years) or £5000 (3 years), and up to £5000 funding for a 'career development event' to be devised and organised by the Fellows. Applications should be made by the (potential) Fellows, who should have identified and sought the support of a suitable UK host department.
There are no nationality or citizenship restrictions, but the fellowships must be hosted in UK universities or suitable public-sector research institutions and it will be the responsibility of the host department to get UKVI approval, if relevant, once any award is made.
Any host department is not expected to supervise or direct the research, but must provide a stimulating and inclusive research environment, and each Fellow’s career development should be supported through mentoring.
