New doctoral programme bridging social and mathematical sciences at Warwick
The Leverhulme-funded Bridges Programme aims to provide PhD students with deep knowledge of contemporary research questions in the social sciences, and rigorous training in the mathematical and computational approaches needed to answer them. Students will have a mentor in the social sciences (Psychology, Economics, Business, Politics, or Sociology) and one in the mathematical sciences (Computer Science, Statistics, or Mathematics).
Six PhD Scholarships are awarded in 2015 (nine more to come). Applicants may come from any background, but should have well-developed interests in quantitative problem-solving, which may include knowledge of computer programming, mathematical or statistical training, or prior training in mathematical modeling. Candidates should be proficient in English. Deadline to send a statement of interest: 28 February 2015.
