This specialisation gives the student a broad basis in modern statistics, statistical computation and statistical consulting, with specific emphasis on research in the Life and Behavioural Sciences. Data analysis is a crucial component of statistical science. Statisticians at the Leiden Mathematical Institute collaborate with statisticians with special expertise in Life Science research, coming from the Medical Centers at Leiden and VU University, and from Wageningen University and Research. Expertise in Behavioural Science comes from statisticians at the Leiden Institute of Psychology. Some of the keywords are genomics, genetics, micro array data, fMRI research, longitudinal analysis, psychometrics, educational testing, structural equation modelling, and questionnaire data.
Students will also learn practical skills such as statistical programming, statistical consultation, and written and oral presentation of analysis and research results.
Students are prepared for jobs in academia as a PhD candidate, in industry as an applied statistician, or both.

instruction modes
Courses combine lectures and hands-on tutorials. Most courses include assignments, a project and/or presentations. During the Statistical Consulting course students will meet and work with real clients. The internship usually takes place at an institute or company outside university and consists of a practical research project. The final product is the master's thesis, concerning a big research project carried out under the supervision of one of the professors in the program.
objectives
The nominal duration of the program is two years (120 ECTS). The programme consists of mandatory courses, specialisation courses, electives, an internship (10 ECTS), and a master's thesis (24 ECTS).
The first year consists of core courses and specialisation courses. The second year consists mostly of specialisation courses, an internship and writing a master's thesis.

Core courses are: Statistics & Probability, Mathematics for Statisticians, Statistical Computing with R, Linear & Generalized Linear Models and Linear Algebra, Bayesian Statistics, Multivariate and Multidimensional Data Analysis, Mixed and Longitudinal modelling, Advanced Statistical Computing, and Statistical Consulting.

Specialisation courses are: Introduction to the Life and Behavioural Sciences, Study Designs, R for LBS, Survival Analysis*, Statistical Genetics*, Psychometrics and Structural Equation Modelling*, Statistical Learning*, and High-dimensional Data Analysis*.

During the 7-8 week internship, students are free to apply their knowledge and skills at positions in a wide array of institutes and companies. The master's thesis is targeted to be more theoretical with stringent requirements in terms of supervision and academic content.

Beroepsperspectief / arbeidsmarkt

Students graduated in Statistical Science are in high demand: almost all students find jobs within six months after graduation, but a large group is immediately employed! About half of the students find jobs at companies and research institutes outside university, and the other half starts a PhD project.
There is a large demand for applied statisticians at both the master's and the PhD level. Job opportunities can be found in, but are not limited to, biomedical research institutes, health care, TNO Institutes, agricultural research institutes and companies, bio-technology companies, pharmaceutical industry, educational testing service (ETS, CITO), the national institute of public health and the environment (RIVM), social survey institutes such as Statistics Netherlands (CBS), the Social and Cultural Planning Office (SCP), the National Forensic Institute (NFI), marketing companies, banking, food industry and other industries.
