The International Research Training Group (IRTG) 1792 “High Dimensional Nonstationary Time Series” offers its flagship PhD program to aspiring candidates from the fields of statistics, mathematics and economics.

With its participating faculty, the IRTG comprises all major academic institutions of mathematical statistics and economics in Berlin and Xiamen: Xiamen University, Wang Yanan Institute for Studies in Economics (WISE), Free University of Berlin, Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (WIAS) with the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin as the hosting university. The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation) provides the funding for our research and our PhD students in the framework of its Training Groups.

The IRTG's doctoral program is based on the unifying research theme "High Dimensional Nonstationary Time Series", and its focus is on identifying low dimensional factors that help to forecast and understand dynamic aspects of possibly non stationary economic data in high dimension. The doctoral program combines demanding course work and a particularly early start of individual research. The course and research program are held entirely in English. The IRTG works in close cooperation with the Berlin Doctoral Program in Economics and Management Science (BDPEMS) and the Research Training Group 1659 (RTG1659). If you have any questions about the program, please contact the coordinator.

The IRTG 1792 now accepts PhD applications from the 15th of January to the 28th of February 2018. Find out more about our call for applicants and the application process.
