The department consists of three divisions: mathematics, computational mathematics and mathematical statistics. Researchers at the division of mathematical statistics have competence that ranges over many different areas, including theoretical and applied statistics, discrete probability, insurance mathematics and epidemic modelling.
We are looking to hire a student for a project on random spatial processes supervised by Daniel Ahlberg. More information about the project can be found on information page for the PhD program (scroll down). Note that only the projects in mathematical statistics are available for this position – mathematics and computational mathematics are separate PhD programs.
