There has been a clearly increasing recognition of the contribution of Bio statistical expertise to an ever-expanding range of areas in medical, dental, genetic, and health science research. By developing new quantitative methods, characterizing underlying theory, and making innovative applications to scientific problems, Biostatisticians play a leading role in the advancement of biomedical, pharmaceutical and public health research.
Demand for expertise in Biostatistics continues to be high in academia and in public and private sectors emphasizing health science research. There is a widely recognized shortage of graduates in Biostatistics relative to what appears to be a continually increasing demand for expertise in this area.
The post graduates in Statistics are eligible to attend the recruitment to Indian Statistical Service and various departments of Statistics and Economics in central government. In the academic institutions, these post graduates are eligible to teach under graduate and post graduates programs in Statistics. In addition to traditional employment, the post graduates can also work in industries, banking, computer software companies, medical and pharmaceutical research, state and central government and R&D organizations.
There is a huge demand for Data Scientists particularly Statisticians who can effectively carry out the scientific analysis of the data. The theoretical foundations, design guidelines and computational skills associated with the different fields of Statistics help the students to pursue higher studies in advanced areas of Statistics.
