More about Biometris
Biometris is the central group for mathematics and statistics at Wageningen University and Research Centre. The group consists of about 75 people, 50 permanent staff and 25 PhDs and postdocs. Education and consultation are pivotal for the societal role of Biometris. Education is at the very heart of the university and Biometris provides all BSc courses on mathematics and statistics at Wageningen UR, as well as numerous other courses for MSc and PhD students, post-docs and industry. Biometris also provides statistical and mathematical consultancy and training to researchers inside and outside Wageningen UR.
Within Biometris we focus our research on the development of mathematical and statistical techniques that can be applied to the Life Sciences. In this way, we contribute to the scientific and societal impact of Wageningen UR. Our vision can be expressed by the slogan: “Quantitative methods brought to life”. Consequently, our research is generally done in collaboration with other research groups both in and outside Wageningen.
Our research focusses on the themes of Systems Biology and Ecology, Statistical Genetics and Genomics, Food and Health Risk Assessment, and Big Data in Life Sciences. Our capital lies in the mathematical and statistical expertise of our employees. We therefore strive to keep our employees motivated and scientifically up-to-date and offer ample opportunities for personal development.
