PhD Fellowships in Physics at the University of Parma, Italy

The Department of Physics and Earth Sciences [1] at the University of Parma [2] invites applications for its Ph.D. program. The fellowships start November 1st 2016 and have a duration of 3 years.

The PhD program covers several scientific areas, including Gravitational physics, Numerical Relativity and Gravitational Waves. The specific research topics of this call are

1. Perturbative and non-perturbative physics in quantum field theory: theoretical and computational features
2. Quantum Control and Quantum Simulation
3. Molecular technologies for multi-phase complex systems
4. Development and characterization of novel semiconducting oxides
5. Nanostructured materials for photocatalytic or optical applications
6. Biophysical studies on bacterial photoreceptors of agronomic and biotechnological relevance
7. High orders in Numerical Stochastic Perturbation Theory: renormalons and study of quasi conformal windows
8. Metal surface fabrication with ultrashort laser pulses
9. Modeling gravitational waves from compact binary mergers
10. New active materials for ion batteries and supercapacitors based on carbon nanostructures
11. Development of photosensitizing proteins for superresolution microscopy
12. Experimental study of non-equilibrium transformations in cooking processes and definition of statistical models

The application deadline is September 5th 2016. The selection will be based on the curriculum of the candidate and on an interview. In the application the candidate must choose and specify only one research topic. Details on the call and instructions on the on-line application can be found at:
