International Relativistic Astrophysics Ph.D. Program

The coordinated effort of many international organizations such as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN), the European Southern Observatory (ESO), has led to an unprecedented amount of scientific information from the microphysical world all the way to the entire Universe. To harvest the results of these scientific missions, a specific Ph. D. program has been envisaged in order to involve the students in the analysis and modeling of the above observational data within the theory of general relativity and relativistic quantum and classical field theories. The students will also be involved in innovative experimental programs in relativistic astrophysics. The program provides expertise in the most advanced topics of experimental, mathematical and theoretical physics relevant to the context of astronomy, astrophysics and cosmology. These activities, being necessarily international, the scientific and academic institutions, indicated below, participate with their own specific scientific specialties and a joint degree is delivered, at the end of the program.

A deadline of 23th February 2014 has been established for the nine positions sponsored by the Erasmus Mundus Program. Five additional positions sponsored by CAPES, for students from Brazil, and two by FAPERJ for students from the state of Rio de Janeiro, have deadline 30th June 2014. Five additional positions open internationally and directly sponsored by the participating institutions will have deadline 30th September 2014. For the application and more information see http://www.icranet.org/irap-phd .

COURSES: DURING THE THREE YEARS 180 HOURS OF CLASSES WILL BE FOLLOWED, FROM THE COURSES INDICATED HERE, AS WELL AS FROM ADDITIONAL COURSES IN THE PARTICIPATING INSTITUTIONS.
