The unit, led by University of Warwick Professors John Copas, Jim Smith and Mark Steel, will create a focal point for innovative statistical research. The Centre will bring 3 new permanent academic posts, 5 post-doctoral positions and a number of PhD studentships. This will reinforce the discipline of statistics and its application across many areas of science and technology.
CRiSM will focus on strategic research and on a vigorous programme of recruiting PhD students. There will also be a sustained international programme of visiting statisticians from academia, industry and research institutions, and a programme of outreach activities linking the work of the Centre to industry, commerce and to the wider research community.
