SAMBa's 13th Integrative Think Tank delivers successful collaborative research
You’ll be working at the interface of statistics with applied and computational mathematics, and delivering high quality applied and applicable research. You’ll develop a broad range of mathematical, computational and statistical skills, and collaborate with industry, government and applied sciences. You’ll bring a new mathematical mindset to their challenges.
During the first year, you will define your own research topic to carry out during years two to four. A series of courses and opportunities will enable you to explore ideas and scope your future research in collaboration with academic staff and partner organisations.
We will prepare you for a career in research and industry, enabling you to connect applied mathematics and statistics. You’ll graduate with great problem-solving abilities, ready to work in the emerging world of big models and big data.
Throughout your training we will offer a wide range of activities to complement your PhD, such as conference and workshop participation, placement and secondment opportunities, and industrial and international collaboration.
SAMBa graduates move on to a variety of academic and industrial research positions, as well as government organisations. As a graduate, you’ll be well set up for a career in academia, industry, or elsewhere.
Welcome to Cohort 10! This week will provide an opportunity for you to explore campus, meet other students and members of staff, find out more about the programme, undertake introductory training and participate in some fun social activities.
Congratulations to the Maths team who won the friendly summer rounders event hosted by the Sports Department on 26 July. The team, comprising PhD students and staff, took on the Sports Training Village in the final, winning by a crucial half rounder!
The next in the series of joint events between the University of Bath, UNAM (Mexico city), CIMAT (Guanajuato, Mexico), and University of Warwick. The format will be three mini-courses and talks by senior colleagues and students. It is a great occasion to learn about different topics and to meet the international community.
A new book published by Dr Kit Yates discusses how we make predictions, how they can go wrong, and how we can use maths to act as a guide to avoid the pitfalls.
Wolfson Lecture Theatre, 12.00-16.30
Students from cohort 9. who have completed their first year and are starting their PhD research, present an overview of their thesis formulation reports. We will also include introductions to students from cohort 10.
We were joined by partners Syngenta and RSS-Hydro for ITT18 which took place at the Bath Royal Literary & Scientific Institution (BRLSI) from 12-16 June 2023.
A residential retreat for SAMBa students at the lovely Ammerdown retreat centre, set in the heart of beautiful Somerset countryside. Students from across the SAMBa cohorts will be able to dedicate two days to writing, including structured and facilitated quiet writing time, goal-setting and review.
The Doctoral Recognition Awards, organised by the Doctoral College, recognise students and staff who have made contributions to enhancing the doctoral student experience. Congratulations to Carmen van-de-l'Isle, Jenny Power, Pawel Rudnicki and Tosin Babasola who all won student awards and to Pranav Singh who won a staff award.
The SAMBa conference provides an opportunity for students to showcase their work in a supportive environment, alongside external keynote speakers. The work of SAMBa students includes projects in statistics, probability, analysis, numerical analysis, mathematical biology, fluid dynamics, machine learning and high-performance computing.
The event aims at gathering PhD students and young researchers from the University of Bath (UK) and the University of Torino (Italy), and from their closest scientific partners. The purpose of the event is to promote scientific knowledge exchange in the respective fields of research and to foster potential new collaborations.
