There are many wide-ranging doctoral graduation possibilities for mathematics in Göttingen. If you like to gain a PhD in mathematics after your bachelor/master studies, your first step is to contact a possible advisor. You can find information about the different areas of research and their agents in the category research. For your support, at least one other person holding a doctoral degree comes along, and you regularly report your advancements to the so-built "thesis committee" during your PhD studies.
The PhD studies normally take three years and take place within the framework
of the structured "Promotionsprogramm
Mathematik" (english: PhD School of Mathematical Sciences).
During the whole time of the PhD studies, the PhD students have to be enrolled at the university of Göttingen.
The PhD program helps you to work on your doctoral dissertation and is composed as follows.
During the PhD studies, you have to gain achievements covering 21 credit points ("credits", abbreviated C), which you have to account for your doctoral examination, cf. attachment 6 "Fachspezifische Bestimmungen für das Grundprogramm Mathematik" letter C of the doctorate regulations.
You can find third-party funds support in particular in two DFG research training groups
In addition, the Centre for Statistics (ZfS) provides an interdisciplinary research training group Scaling problems in statistics and an interdisciplinary PhD program "Applied statistics and empirical methods".
A successfully terminated doctoral graduation in mathematics leads to obtaining the doctoral degree "Dr.rer.nat.". The PhD School of Mathematical Sciences is part of the Georg-August University School of Science (GAUSS).
