Physics PhD Programme »
The Graduate Program in Physics of Trieste is integrated in a research and higher education system which is probably unique in Italy. The physics research activities spectrum at the Trieste University is infact very broad.
Besides a relevant theoretical and computational research activity, there is a wide community of experimental physicists belonging both to the university and to public and private research bodies who are actively engaged in fields ranging from fundamental nuclear and subnuclear physics to the physics of electronic devices and new materials, from the development of new machines (see e.g. the free electron laser source Fermi at Elettra) to medical physics, from nanotechnology to astroparticle physics and astronomy (both theoretical and experimental).
The University of Trieste’s Department of Physics offers five lines of research leading to a PhD in Physics. The duration of the PhD programme is three years, and it is taught in English. Research is carried out in cutting-edge facilities, on the main university campus, at the local Area Science Park and at national and international laboratories, in collaboration with Italian and international research institutions. ICTP offers a scholarship for students from developing countries who want to do research in areas of interest to ICTP.
