Mathematics

Earning a Ph.D. requires extended study and intense mental effort. A PhD is an academic study on which you concentrate for four to six years after obtaining your master’s degree, and that leads, if successful, to a PhD degree, the highest academic degree.

Mathematics is a discipline that needs frequent studies, research and analysis of the legendary mathematical formulas. This training will help you understand the mathematical concepts. At the same time, you will come up with better ways to simplify the mathematical formulas to ease the understanding process especially for students.

Officially known as the Italian Republic, the country is found in southern Europe. The official language is Italian and the cultural rich capital is Rome. Many of the world's oldest universities are located in Italy, in particular the University of Bologna (founded in 1088). There are three Superior Graduate Schools with "university status", three institutes with the status of Doctoral Colleges, which function at graduate and post-graduate level.

Description of Study Program

The Göttingen math department offers excellent and manifold opportunities for pursuing a career towards a doctoral degree. Students are integrated into the international and inspiring environment of the department. The spectrum of possible Ph.D. research topics ranges from pure over applied mathematics to mathematical statistics. Ph.D. projects may also be interdisciplinary, with close connections to other disciplines, such as mathematical physics or biophysics.

For more information about the various research topics of the Göttingen math department, please consult the faculty homepages. The Ph.D. program usually takes three years. During the entire program, doctoral candidates are students of the University of Göttingen. Aside from the research program, Ph.D. candidates are additionally required to attend lectures and seminars in order to broaden their knowledge and to acquire new skills. Ph.D. students are also expected to present their research results at international conferences and workshops.... [-]
