BIAS: Training & Capacity Building Programme
runs regular courses in Bayesian statistical methods,
including a 3-day introductory short course Introduction to Bayesian
modelling and WinBUGS
. In addition to lectures and hands-on practical
sessions using WinBUGS, time will be set aside for each participant to give a
short presentation about a problem that they are interested in using Bayesian
methods to solve, with feedback from course tutors on how to achieve this.
Details of the next course can be found here
Following each training course, participants will be able to apply for
(limited) places on the mentoring scheme.
Past training materials
R packages and WinBUGS code for implementing many of the methods and
applications developed during the BIAS project are available from our
This new activity is designed to provide help on a one-to-one basis for
selected individuals/research groups to implement Bayesian models for their
particular problem. The aim is to help the individual/group to implement,
interpret and write up for publication the results of their analysis. The
mentor(s) would also be co-authors on such publications. The mentoring scheme is linked to attendance at one of our Bayesian short courses. See here for further details.
We have a small number of short-term fellowships available to work
with the BIAS team at Imperial. The fellowships are designed to allow
individuals to learn how to apply some of the methods being developed by the
BIAS project either to their own data or to one of our case studies. Further
details will be advertised on this web site soon!
