The PhD is the highest qualification awarded by academic institutions. The PhD in Physics is accessed via a competitive selection. The PhD program in Italy lasts three years, during which PhD students continue their studies in Physics and work on a research project in collaboration with one of the groups of the Department.
The PhD is a mandatory path to enter the world of research. As a PhD student you will begin a process of specialisation in one of the research areas of the Department, participate in conferences and international research projects, publish your scientific results on peer-reviewed journals and spend part of your time abroad thanks to our many international collaborations.
Other professional opportunities
The PhD title is very valuable also in the job market. The PhD title is recognised by most industries, where your greater specialisation and professional maturity open the way to jobs with higher responsibility and better salaries.
