The Centre of Biostatistics in the University of Limerick, Ireland, currently is looking for two able *EU *PhD students to apply for funding in the IRCSET scholarship competition now underway. Please see http://www.ircset.ie/ . The closing date for this competition is February 16th. If successful, funds will be available from October 1st, 2011. The stipend is EUR16k + EURfees +EURtravel +EURcomputer =EUR25k pa in total. IRCSET will fund for 3 years.
The IRCSET scheme involves filling in an on-line application form with 10 parts (each with 10 points) and a score of 75/100 is usually required. The parts are straightforward but one needs a good academic track, reference, personal statement of interest, and a good project.
The two projects are:
A) A project in the pharmaceutical industry in association with Parexel International to evaluate a new method of monitoring safety in Phase IV studies. The idea is to develop methods which are more economical than registry based methods. Will suit someone with interests in Bayesian methodology applied to Medicine.*
B) Covariance Modelling. Increasingly the importance of joint mean-covariance modelling is being appreciated. The student will develop new methodology in this area with the assistance of a research group working on this topic in the BIO-SI(www.ul.ie/bio-si)research programme. Will suit someone interested in longitudinal data analysis and mathematical statistics.
Applicants should have an MSc in Medical Statistics, Biostatistics or Mathematical Statistics and be competent in the R programming language.
* Project A has already been approved by IRCSET.
