As a doctoral student at Mathematical Sciences, you can be admitted to a third-cycle subject at the University of Gothenburg or to a graduate school at Chalmers. It works almost in the same way at both universities, but it differs a bit in terms of which obligatory courses to study, among other things. GTS (General and Transferable Skills) courses at Chalmers and obligatory PhD courses at the Faculty of Science, University of Gothenburg.

At Chalmers there are the following graduate schools for those who wish to take a PhD at Mathematical Sciences:

- Mathematics (with two specialisations, applied mathematics and industrial mathematics). Director of graduate studies: Johan Tykesson
- Mathematical statistics (with two specialisations, biostatistics and industrial statistics). Director of graduate studies: Johan Tykesson
- Applied mathematics and mathematical statistics. Director of graduate studies: Marija Cvijovic NOTE! From August 1, 2021 no new admissions to this graduate school! Replaced by the graduate school in Applied Mathematics and Statistics.
- Applied mathematics and statistics. Director of graduate studies: Marija Cvijovic

In addition, a doctoral student in mathematics or mathematical statistics may be admitted to the graduate school in Biosciences, which is an interdisciplinary graduate school.

The third-cycle subjects we have at the University of Gothenburg are

Starting from August 1, 2021 the following syllabi are valid:

- Mathematics / Mathematics, specialisation applications. See also section 5 in the syllabus for Mathematics Chalmers / section 4 in the syllabus for Applied Mathematics and mathematical statistics Chalmers. Director of graduate studies: Johan Tykesson / Marija Cvijovic (valid from August 1, 2021)

In addition, there is a third-cycle subject in mathematics/natural science specialising in educational sciences.

## Industrial PhD student

Industrial PhD student projects are a special type of collaborative projects between the department and a company. An industrial PhD student is admitted to one of the graduate schools, and performs the education within the employment with the company.
