Guest researcher 2017
Quarter-day tutorials and/or condensed courses, 2–4 lectures, are given by national and international guest researchers on specialised aspects of uncertainty and randomness. These are intended to broaden the horizon of the doctoral researchers with actual topics in randomness and uncertainty that complement the competences and background of the participating professors. Participation in lectures of visiting researchers is obligatory for the doctorate researchers. This qualification programme part enables the doctorate researchers to get in touch with internationally well-established researchers. The contacts between the doctoral researchers and the visiting lecturers may be a step towards research visits and/or postdoctoral fellowships in the remainder of their scientific career. Finally, the visiting research programme increases the international visibility of the Research Training Group.
