Statistics: Theory and Methods of Empirical Modelling
The doctoral program gives a comprehensive view of the methodological principles of the subject of statistics which goes beyond specialisations in life sciences, humanities, social sciences and economics. To secure a joint academic basis, language and variety of methods for the description and modelling of uncertainty in the various application subjects, an intensive exchange of information and ideas between the disciplines is promoted within the scope of interdisciplinary application projects. The participants in the program have the opportunity to contribute to the methodological progress of the subject and, by the integration into application projects, to the acquisition of knowledge in other disciplines. At the same time, the doctoral candidates acquire key skills for a career in or outside of academia. The content of the program is based on the fields of research of explorative, inductive and computational statistics that are represented at the Department of Statistics.
