PhD position in Statistics within RTG 2300 at Göttingen University
The Research Training Group (RTG) 2300 ‘Enrichment of European beech
forests with conifers: impacts of functional traits on ecosystem
functioning’ (EnriCo) at the Georg-August-University Göttingen in
Germany, is currently inviting applications for
11 PhD Positions (f, m, d)
starting on October 1, 2023. The positions are funded by the German
Research Foundation (DFG) for 3 years.
Subproject 10 of the RTG entitled ‘Semiparametric Regression’ (75 % TV-L
E 13) is located in the Statistics and Econometrics group with Prof. Dr.
Thomas Kneib. The general objective of this subproject is to develop
flexible and practical forms of semiparametric regression models for the
type of data collected within the RTG. A particular focus will be on
spatial confounding and structural equation models as flexible tools for
modelling complex relations in empirical data.
By the time of employment, the successful candidate will already have
completed a very good M.Sc. degree in statistics, data science, computer
science, mathematics or other areas related to the scientific work of
the RTG with a strong focus on quantitative methods.
