The doctoral programme in mathematics and statistics offers thesis subjects and supervision in analysis, inverse problems, mathematical and statistical physics, biomathematics, mathematical logic, stochastics and statistics. The research for the dissertation is usually carried out in the research groups of the department of mathematics and statistics, where the doctoral candidates receive personal guidance. All doctoral candidates are encouraged to make research visits and take part in summer and winter schools and conferences both in Finland and abroad.
The course work in the programme consists mainly of courses in mathematics and statistics as well as of courses and seminars in other areas supporting the candidate’s own research. The programme also arranges some short courses, often with international visitors as lecturers. Also courses offering training in general skills are offered, such as project management, scientific writing and university pedagogy.
