Statistics

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

With PhD in Statistics, you can understand complex mathematics that are often difficult to understand especially for students pursuing higher education. Through this study, you will have ideas on how to improve this area of study especially on its applicability.

Italy, officially the Italian Republic, is a unitary parliamentary republic within the European Union, located in Southern Europe. To the north, it borders France, Switzerland, Austria, and Slovenia along the Alps.

For all those who are interested in studying rich Italian culture and heritage, Trieste is the best place to visit. It has distinctive training institutions that provide quality education at a reasonable cost. Università degli Studi di Trieste is well known for good education system and support for students.

PhD in Mathematical Analysis, Modelling and Application

International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA)
Campus Full time 3 - 4 years August 2017 Italy Trieste

Doctorate Degrees in Statistics in Trieste in Italy. Purpose of the PhD Course The aim of the PhD Course in Mathematical Analysis, Modelling, and Applications is to educate graduate students in the fields of mathematical analysis and mathematical modelling, and in the applications of mathematical and numerical analysis to science and technology. The goal is to enable PhDs to work as high level researchers in these fields in universities, research institutes, and private companies. Research Topics The activity in Mathematical Analysis is mainly focused on ordinary and partial differential equations, on dynamical systems, on the calculus of variations, and on control theory. Connections of these topics with differential geometry and reduced order modeling are also developed. The activity in Mathematical Modelling is oriented to subjects for which the main technical tools come from mathematical analysis. The present themes are multiscale analysis, mechanics of materials, micromagnetics, modelling of biological systems, computational fluid and solid dynamics and problems related to control theory. The Applications of Mathematics developed in this course are related to the numerical analysis of partial differential equations and of control problems. This activity is developed in collaboration with MathLab for the study of problems coming from the real world, from industrial and medical applications, and from complex systems. Main research lines: Calculus of Variations and Multiscale Analysis Conservation Laws and Transport Problems Geometric Control Theory and Sub-Riemannian Geometry Mechanics of Materials and of Biological Systems Nonlinear Analysis Numerical Analysis Systems Biology The most recent placements after PhD at SISSA: Ecole Polytechnique (Palaiseau, France), University of Oxford (Oxford, UK), California Institute of Technology (Pasadena, USA), Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, USA), Hausdorff Center for Mathematics (Bonn, Germany), Rutgers University (USA), Universität Zürich (Zürich, Switzerland) General Rules The PhD programme consists in three/four years of study and research. The main selection procedure consists in an entrance examination. This is divided into two parts: in the written part applicants are asked to solve problems from a list given by the entrance committee. The oral exam consists in a discussion on the written test, on the topics studied in the univerisity curriculum, and possibly on the applicant's thesis for the university degree or on other scientific achievements. The applicant's scientific qualifications and references are also taken into account. Non-EU citizens may be admitted on the sole basis of their previous scientific activity, publications, and references, in a pre-selection procedure. They have to pass a "Qualifying Examination" at the end of their first year. Student may choose among different plans of study oriented to the different fields covered by their PhD course. In the first month of the PhD programme, the faculty approves the individual plans of study, taking into account the scientific interests of the students and the skills already acquired in the previous university studies. In the first year, students attend both basic and more advanced courses. To be admitted to the second year they are required to pass the examinations of the courses included in their plan of study. Students are invited to attend, without examinations, also some courses in fields different from those of their plan of study. At the end of the first year students start a research project, under the supervision of a faculty member or of an external collaborator approved by the faculty, in one of the research fields of the PhD programme. During the second and third year students work for their research projects, participate in the seminar activities of the PhD programme, and attend some courses. Examinations have to be passed only by students who worked in their first year in a different PhD programme. Students obtain the PhD degree after submitting their PhD thesis and defending it in front of an examination committee, whose members include SISSA staff members and international experts in the field. SISSA PhD in one of the courses of Mathematics Area is by law equivalent to the Italian degree of “Dottore di Ricerca in Matematica”. [-]

PhD in Statistical Physics

Statistical Physics, together with Quantum Mechanics, is the pillar of our understanding of many physical phenomena, from the simplest to the most sophisticated. The field has recently witnessed a significant and impressive outpouring of experimental and theoretical results, which have created an ideal physicist’s playground. Statistical Physics addresses, for instance, crucial questions about the nature of phase transitions and predicts the possibility to forge new states of matter, such as Bose-Einstein condensation in ultra-cold gases. At the same time, it provides a vital source of fresh ideas and inspiration for those who work in more theoretical directions. Its attraction lies in its ability to produce an array of sophisticated analytical and conceptual tools with far-reaching applications. The remarkable blend of mathematical and physical ideas is at the root of the outstanding scientific elegance and extraordinary efficiency characterizing this scientific area. Thanks to an intense activity of postgraduate courses, weekly seminars, colloquia and journal club meetings, the PhD programme aims at providing students with aims at training students to a complete mastery of the scientific methods of Statistical Physics and exposing them to research topics which are currently at the frontier of this field, such as: Quantum Field Theory Exactly Solvable Models Ultra-cold atomic gases Quantum spin chains Physics out of equilibrium and thermalization properties Quantum quench and entanglement AdS/CFT correspondence Conformal Field Theory Stochastic methods Casimir effect Random matrices The most recent placements after PhD at SISSA: Rockfeller Foundation, New York, USA Rutgers University, Rutgers, USA Nordita, Stockholm, Sweden Max Planck Institute, Munich, Germany Institute of Complex Systems, Santa Fe, USA Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris, France Max Planck Institute, Dresden, Germany Institute of Quantum Optics, Barcelona, Spain CEA, Saclay, France C.N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics, Stony Brook, USA PhD Fellowships at SISSA The International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) welcomes applications for PhD fellowships in Statistical Physics for the academic year 2016/2017. The students are selected through an oral exam held at SISSA, Trieste (Italy). There are two sessions, one in April and one in October, with application deadlines usually the month before. Candidates are entitled to reimbursement of travel expenses. [-]
