As a doctoral student in mathematical statistics, you develop your critical thinking, carry out independent planning, and lead, complete and present research and development work in mathematical statistics. The research education also aims to provide general knowledge in the subject through practical uses, in-depth insights, and a statistical way of thinking to learn about the different research methods. Mathematical statistics contains two different perspectives: probability theory and statistical inference. Probability theory involves modeling random phenomena using mathematical methods. Statistical inference means using probability theory to develop methods that are used to conclude from collected data sets. Read more in the study plan.
The graduate school is organised within the Department of Mathematical Sciences.

This syllabus applies to doctoral students admitted as of 2021-08-01.
Regarding older syllabus, please contact the first vice/vice head of department.
A doctoral student admitted to an older syllabus may earn a degree in accordance with this, provided that the current Appointment regulation for doctoral programmes and current Local Qualifications Framework – third cycle qualifications are followed.
Doctoral students admitted to an older syllabus of the graduate school Mathematical Statistics can, however, change to the current syllabus by an application to the Deputy/Vice Head of Department. The change must be documented in the individual study plan.
The graduate school is regulated by the Appointment regulation for doctoral programmes and the Local Qualifications Framework for Chalmers University of Technology - third cycle qualifications and is described in the syllabus for the graduate school. In the event of any conflict between the documents, the Appointment regulation for doctoral programmes and the Local Qualifications Framework for Chalmers University of Technology - third cycle qualifications are governing.
