PhD scholarship (f/m/d) IGSSE grant

Copula based Flight Safety Analyses (CopFly)

The Institute of Flight System Dynaimcs’ Flight Safety Group conducts research on quantifying risks of serious incidents and accidents in aviation. Therefore, predictive analysis methods that combine physically motivated models with large-scale analyses of operational flight data are investigated.

In collaboration with TUM’s Chair of Applied Mathematical Statistics, we aim to model accident scenarios by combining physically motivated model based approaches with flexible stochastic approaches for data-driven aviation safety analyses. For this interdisciplinary field of research, we are offering a PhD scholarship, granted by TUM’s International Graduate School of Science and Engineering (IGSSE).
