PhD student positions in mathematical statistics

Department of Mathematical Sciences
Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg
Job Description: 

At the division of mathematical statistics we do internationally recognized research in probability, statistics and their applications, including (but not limited to) biostatistics, bioinformatics, population dynamics, stochastic processes, spatial statistics, Bayesian statistics, extreme value theory and the theory of large random networks.

We are now looking for at least two doctoral students in mathematical statistics, including two positions in the following research areas
1) spatial statistics: development of computationally efficient methods for the analysis of large data sets, position at Chalmers
2) biostatistics: network modeling for large-scale human cancer studies, position at the University of Gothenburg

As a PhD student you will be part of an international research environment while you expand your knowledge of the field and write your thesis. This gives opportunities for many inspiring conversations, a lot of autonomous work and some travel. You are expected to develop your own ideas and communicate scientific results orally as well as in written form. In addition, the position will normally include 20 % departmental work, mostly teaching duties. The employment is limited to a maximum of five years.
