The Doctoral Programme is currently seeking to recruit up to PhD students, starting 1 January 2012, with the funding period (stipend) being for up to four years. Progress in postgraduate studies and research is evaluated after the first year, and decision on further funding will be made on the basis of this evaluation. The PhD students are being recruited in the main research areas of the Department; mathematical analysis, mathematics of inverse problems, stochastics, spatial and computational statistics, time-series analysis. Applicants must have a science training equivalent to that required for the M.Sc. degree in mathematics or statistics at the University of Jyväskylä.
The deadline for applications is at 4:15 pm on 28 November 2011. Application is asked to be made using the electronic form on page www.jyu.fi/science/en/applicationformphdstudents, and should be accompanied with current CV, and a research and study plan. Before submitting an application, an applicant is advised to contact the researchers or research groups which he/she finds interesting.
