Doctoral Program

"Statistics: Theory and Methods of Empirical Modeling"

Welcome to the website of the doctoral program "Statistics: Theory and Methods of Empirical Modeling" of the Department of Statistics at the LMU in Munich.

Our main goal is to provide doctoral candidates with a perspective on the methodical foundations of Statistics that goes far beyond a specialization in the life, social or economic sciences or the humanities and to . institutionalize a scientific dialogue through interdisciplinary applications. This is to ensure that, going forward, we can rely on a common academic foundation and language as well as a diversity of methods for the description and modeling of uncertainty in various applications.
