Learning outcomes

The PhD in Physics has the purpose of completing the scientific training in Physics for the various research fields actively present in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, in the Bologna Sections of INFN and CNAF-INFN, and in the CNR Institutes of the Bologna area. The PhD program aims to train researchers able to perform independent activities in the following sectors: Theoretical physics, Condensed matter physics, Nuclear and subnuclear physics, Applied physics and complex systems, Physics education and History of Physics. In the theoretical field, the PhD students should be able to build and study mathematical models to describe physical phenomena, while in the experimental field to conduct physics experiments in laboratories and critically analyze the results. In general the PhD students are trained to use the scientific method and achieve the ability to apply it in different contexts, making them eligible to take leadership positions in high-level organizations.

Activities to be carried out by Doctoral candidates

Basic and fundamental research (theoretical and experimental), applied research (with applications to physics, medicine, technology, computer science, etc.). The research of the PhD students includes laboratory activities, participation in international workshops and conferences and measurement campaigns, the use of networks, databases, a software for analyzing data and models.

Research training activities compliant with the Doctoral programme's learning outcomes

The PhD students are required to attend PhD or advanced Master courses for a total of 136 hours of lectures in the first two years of the course. The PhD students also attend specialized seminars and national and international schools. They are also part of research groups at universities and research centers where they carry on their activities in preparation of the PhD thesis.
