The University of Edinburgh has a powerful track record in statistical research, and in the application of statistical methodology in a wide range of fields. The Centre for Statistics (CfS) brings together multi-disciplinary researchers from across the University who have the expertise to tackle today’s commercial and societal challenges.

The CfS website is under construction.  In the meantime, if you would like more information on working with the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Statistics, please contact:
