Jagiellonian University in Kraków is a leading centre for mathematical research in Poland and provides a vibrant and active environment for students from Poland and around the world seeking a PhD degree in mathematics.
In the four-years PhD programme, the doctoral student will work under the supervision of a professor on a research project leading to a PhD degree in mathematics. A teaching program for PhD students consists of advanced lecture courses, research seminars, reading classes, a doctoral colloquium, and can be further extended by other activities (summer schools etc).
A first degree is required to enter the program. It will usually be a master degree, but in exceptional cases, a bachelor degree may suffice.
Every PhD student will be receiving a scholarship (37% of the minimal wage of a professor). The scholarship increases to 57% of the minimal professor's wage after a positive mid-term evaluation conducted after two years.
The mathematical research conducted at the Jagiellonian University covers most fields of modern mathematics. For a more detailed description of research areas, see the website of the Institute of Mathematics of the Jagiellonian University
