Taxxi Posted November 20, 2019 Share Posted November 20, 2019 (edited) Hello, I am planning to apply for PhD programs with strong faculty in probability(either in connection with combinatorics, random matrices, or stochastic calculus). I am also interested in mathematical statistics. The thing is, depending on university, the probability faculties are either mostly presented in Department of Mathematics or in Department of Statistics, or both. Basically I am running through lists of universities to check whether I have to apply for mathematics or statistics in each case. I am genuinely interested in statistics as well(regressions, time series, nonparametric, Bayesian, theoretical stuff) so my main targets are universities that have good ranking in both mathematics and statistics, though I am thinking of making some exceptions (e.x. I heard NYU Department of Mathematics is perhaps the strongest in probability). @Stat PhD Now Postdoc recommend me Upenn Department of Statistics and I found it a fantastic choice, thank you very much! I would be really appreciated if you advise me along this path with more recommendations. I have already selected a few but want to hear your opinions. I do not mind either department of mathematics or statistics. Thank you very much for your help. Edited November 20, 2019 by Taxxi Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
