Events… Opportunities… Support… Networking…
We’ve just released Issue #4 of the YSS Bulletin – a quick two-minute summary of what the Young Statisticians Section are currently doing!
For example, did you know that our 2017 Statistical Excellence Award for Early Career Writing – organised jointly with Significance magazine – has now gone live? Or that this year’s Statistical Showcase will take place on Friday 30th June?
Check out the Bulletin to find out more.
On the 1st March 2017, the School of Mathematics at the University of Manchester held their annual Careers in Statistics Fair (http://www.maths.manchester.ac.uk/study/careers/maths-careers-events/career-in-statistics-fair-2017.htm).
Around 30 undergraduate and postgraduate students of maths and statistics were in attendance and contributed stalls included the Royal Statistical Society (represented by Sarah Nevitt and Maria Sudell of the YSS and Professor Richard Emsley of the RSS Manchester Local Group), the University of Manchester (a representative of the Department of Biostatistics and from Postgraduate Student Service), HM Revenue and Customs (the UK’s tax, payments and custom’s authority) and the Lubrizol corporation (a leader in speciality chemicals). The afternoon also featured inspiring talks from representatives of each organisation in attendance regarding a wide range of statistical careers and the support that the RSS and the YSS will be able to provide to them throughout their future statistical activities.
