2. FURTHER PARTICULARS

2.1. The LSE
The London School of Economics and Political Science is an independent
and autonomous institution with the status of a School within the federal
University of London. The School was founded in 1895 and since 1901 has
been incorporated under the Companies Act as a company limited by guarantee.
It occupies a compact site in the heart of London close to Westminster,
Whitehall, the City, the Law Courts and the media. As well as the main
complex
of School buildings in, and adjacent to, Houghton Street, the School has
eight halls of residence and a sports ground located in New Malden, Surrey.
At present there are eighteen academic departments, five interdisciplinary
institutes, and several research centres. The subjects taught and
researched
are all in the sphere of the social sciences, broadly conceived. The School
also houses the British Library of Political and Economic Science, one of
the
finest collections in the world of social science materials.

The School has approximately 7,000 students, and is one of the largest
colleges in the University of London. About half of the School's full-time
students are post-graduate, and over 40% of the student cohort are from
overseas.
The School employs about 1,000 staff. In the 1996 Research Assessment
Exercise
the School was ranked second or third (depending on the measures taken) in
the UK with 83% of its staff in 5 or 5* units of assessment.

2.2. The Department of Statistics
The Department of Statistics has 16 academic staff, several research staff
and 3 administrative support staff. Research interests of staff are listed
separately. The Department runs an MSc in Statistics. At the undergraduate
level, the Department offers BSc degrees in Actuarial Science and in
Business
Mathematics and Statistics. The Department has 11 students who are working
towards PhDs in areas of research including multivariate time series models,
robustness, regression diagnostics, optimum experimental design, response
errors
in surveys, census undercount, and volatility in financial markets.

The Department has a network of Sun SPARCstations 20. In addition there is
an
extensive School network of IBM and Pentium machines, both in staff offices
and
in teaching rooms.

The broad range of interests in the Department makes for a stimulating
environment
and provides ample opportunity for interaction at all levels of teaching and
research. Generous funding is available from the Staff Research Fund to aid
research. In addition, the Department plays an important role in the
intellectual
life of the School and has contacts with many other Departments. The
Statistics
Department has particularly close links with the Departments of Economics,
Mathematics and Operational Research, and, through the Methodology
Institute,
with the Departments of Sociology and Social Psychology.

The Department runs its own Departmental Seminars and is an active member of
the
University of London's Statistics Seminar series and the School's
Econometric
and Statistics Seminar series. Recent visitors to the Department have
included
Alan Agresti and Karl Joreskog.

Any candidate who wishes to discuss relevant issues informally is invited to
contact Professor Anthony Atkinson on 0171 955 7622 in the Department of
Statistics.
