APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN
At ATASS Sports, we apply cutting-edge statistical and
mathematical techniques to forecast the results of sporting events, and in 2020
we’ll be running a special introductory training workshop on the statistical
language R, and how it can be used to solve problems in the field of sports
During the two-day workshop (which we’ll be running twice –
once in April, and once in June), you’ll learn the essentials of R from the
ground up, and will have the opportunity to work hands-on with real sports data
under the guidance of our expert statisticians. And of course, you’ll also get
to sample the very best of West Country hospitality.
Full travel expenses and two nights of hotel accommodation
(for Wed 15 & Thu 16 April, or Tue 23 & Wed 24 June) will be provided,
along with entertainment at the end of day one.
Applications are welcomed from penultimate / final-year
undergraduates or Masters / PhD students in mathematics, statistics, physics or
computer science. Places will be allocated on a competitive basis. To apply,
