Jobs of the Unknown - the Future of Statistics and Data Science Careers

Bayes Centre, 47 Potterrow, Edinburgh EH8 9BT 25th Sep 4.45pm-6.00pm Free

Join the Royal Statistical Society at the Bayes Centre in Edinburgh, for a fun and informative evening to learn more about careers in Statistics and Data Science.

Event focus: Careers in both Statistics and Data Science.

Target Audience: Secondary School S5 and S6 pupils and University Undergraduates

Event format:

We will have a diverse collection of Mystery Guests who are currently either Statisticians or Data Scientists, who are willing to be quizzed on their field of speciality. But the aim of the evening is to discover what those specialities are!

Attendees will be put into small groups to circulate around the venue, meeting each Mystery Guest for up to 10 minutes. During that time, attendees can ask the Mystery Guest a series of questions in a bid to find out what field of data it is that they work in. Any remaining time will be available for the Mystery Guest to tell the group a little about what they do in a typical day, and to answer any follow-up questions.

Refreshments will be available.

This event is being run by the Edinburgh Group of the Royal Statistical Society, and is a return of the highly successful inaugural event that was run in September 2023.
