Admission to the Physics education programme
in the Doctoral School of Exact and Natural Sciences
education at the Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Appiled Computer Science
language of education: English

The PhD programme in physics involves a combination of courses, the completion of an original, scholarly piece of research that is then presented as a PhD dissertation and the academic internship mainly focused on academic teaching skills. The courses available within the PhD programme in physics are in form of lectures, classes, seminars, tutorials, computer labs and others. They cover various fields in physics and PhD student together with supervisor decide which offered courses are most compatible with needs and interests of given student and his individual research programme.

The program covers several areas of modern physics and interdisciplinary research:
  • nuclear physics
  • elementary particle physics
  • atomic and molecular physics, quantum optics
  • condensed matter physics
  • materials science
  • surface science, physics of nanostructures and nanotechnology
  • medical physics and environmental protection physics
  • computer physics
  • classical and quantum field theory
  • astrophysics and general relativity
  • mathematical physics
  • quantum gravity and string theory
  • statistical physics
  • theory of complex systems

Apart an experienced scientific stuff, a large international group of younger scientists is involved in the research: postdoctoral fellows and PhD students. Interdisciplinary and inter-departmental research activities also are possible. We also conduct extensive international collaborations what brings opportunities to visit our collaborators in their home institutions. These make that Ph.D studies in physics at the Jagiellonian University are a perfect start to the development of an international scientific career.
