University of Milan-Bicocca
Fellowships 39th cycle
Five fully funded PhD fellowships in STATISTICS are available within the PhD programme ECOSTATDATA at the University of Milan Bicocca for the 39th cycle.
The PhD program extends over four years (Nov 2023 – October 2027).
The first public call for applications will be out from March 21 to April 19, 2023, and the final
ranking of candidates will be published in May 2023.
Participation is open also to candidates who do not have an MSc but expect to obtain their degree
before October 31, 2023.
There is no specific restriction on the subject of the degree; this will be evaluated by the examining board.
The PhD program ECOSTATDATA comprises three separate curricula: Economics, Statistics, Big Data and Analytics for Business.
Each track has its own class and course schedule. However there is some overlap to foster interdisciplinary teaching and projects.
The first part of the PhD program (about 40%) is devoted to courses on a variety of Statistics and Data Science topics (Stats curriculum); the remaining part is research-oriented leading to the final dissertation.
A student will typically spend a year abroad during the thesis period in a host institution, and in that case the amount of the fellowship will be increased by 50%.
