Ph.D. in Physics - course in English
Ph.D. studies are designed on the one hand to provide a strong grounding in highly specialized areas of modern physics and on the other hand to give students the opportunity to develop interdisciplinary skills. All of this is provided by a series of postgraduate courses and frequent seminars in the interdisciplinary environment of the Institute of Physics. By active participation in the group seminars the Ph.D. students can learn the art of scientific presentation. They can choose a supervisor from many senior staff scientists and are fully integrated in the research program of the Institute.
Ph.D. students have been co-authors of approx. 30% of the recent journal papers published by the academic staff of the Institute. The research covers a broad range of currently developed areas in: condensed matter physics (experimental and theoretical), molecular physics, nuclear physics, elementary particle physics, statistical physics, astrophysics and cosmology, medical physics, physics of nano- and mesoscopic systems, computer physics. The dissertation for the degree of Ph.D. shall normally be completed and defended within 4 years.
