The Department of Mathematical, Physical and Computer Sciences  at the University of Parma  invites applications for its Ph.D. program. The Ph.D. fellowships start November 1st 2017 and have a duration of 3 years.
The Ph.D. program covers several scientific areas in theoretical physics, including Cosmology, Gravitational physics, Numerical Relativity, Gravitational Waves, Fundamental interactions at high energy, Quantum Field Theory, Lattice Field Theory and Strings, Statistical Physics, Quantum Mechanics and Complex Systems. (See  for a summary of the research activity of the Theoretical Physics group).
The submission deadline is September 5th 2017. In the application the candidate must indicate the main research topic (and a second-priority choice) amongst the research topics proposed by the Research Doctorate Program in Physics at the Department of Mathematical, Physical and Computer Sciences. The selection will be based on the curriculum of the candidate and an interview. The interview will focus on the previous research experience and on the research project that the candidate proposes.
