Euraxess complete call 
Euraxes call ESR 11 (recrtuiting institution UNITN, Cycle 35)

As from the 30th cycle, the PhD in Physics is activated in cooperation with the National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) (as per par. 2 of art. 2 of DM 45/2013).

Doctoral programme:
The Doctorate offers its students top level educational activities in collaboration with the Department of Physics.

The main aims are to:

  1. provide students with the skills needed to carry out highly qualified research activities at universities, public or private bodies;
  2. develop the ability to autonomously work in the scientific field with creative originality and meticulous methodology;
  3. shape physics able to exert their knowledge and abilities in different fields, thanks to a solid foundation and thanks to the fact that physical sciences are interdisciplinary;
  4. train researchers used to working in groups, used to international collaborations, to communicating research results and to formulating scientific projects.
