Department of Statistics


Welcome to the Department of Statistics!

We are located on the beautiful Vancouver campus of the University of British Columbia.

The Department of Statistics presently has 17 regular faculty members, including one joint appointment with the Children and Family Research Institute and one with the Michael Smith Laboratories. In addition, we have four Professors Emeriti, and a number of Associate Members, Adjunct Professors and Honorary Research Associates and Honorary Professors.

Graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and collaborators are a critical component of a research-intensive academic department. We have about 45 graduate students, divided between M.Sc. and PhD programs. Typically, the Department hosts several post-doctoral fellows and a number of long-term visitors each year.

In addition to our graduate programs, we have a number of major and honours programs at the undergraduate level, some joint with other departments.

The faculty, staff and students of the Department of Statistics take pride in our achievements. We hope you will share a sense of our accomplishments in research and teaching as you explore these pages.  Please feel free to contact us if you would like any further information.
