PhD in Physics 2018

The call for PhD positions in Physics is now open

Candidates can find instructions on how to submit their application on the University of Parma Doctoral studies web site

DEADLINE:  September 4, 2018 - The on-line submission procedure will be availabile from July 10, 2018.

Schedule of the admission exam:

DATE: September 17, 2018

************** TIME: the schedule of interviews can be found at the bottom of this page *************

PLACE: Department of Mathematical, Physical and Computer Sciences – Physics building - Parco Area delle Scienze, 7/A – 43124 PARMA, ITALY

NOTE: Please send the reference letters  directly to Prof. Cristiano Viappiani, Coordinatore del Dottorato in Fisica, email: cristiano.viappiani@unipr.it
Where the form asks you to upload these letters, upload instead a statement that letters (name the reference people) will be sent directly to Prof. Viappiani.

The Oral Exam will focus on the description of the research work carried out to prepare the Graduation Thesis for the Laurea Magistrale/Specialistica, as well as of the research project that the candidate proposes to carry out within the research topics of the Research Doctorate Program in Physics at the Department of Mathematical, Physical and Computer Sciences of the University of Parma. 

In the application to participate in the competitive examination, the candidate must choose and specify one research. The candidate may indicate a second priority choice. The above choice will be binding with regard to the winner's research activity.

Further information on the research topics can be found in the document at the bottom of this page.
