The PhD in Physics at the Physics Dept. “E. Pancini”, University of Naples "Federico II" - one of the largest universities in Italy, and the oldest (1224) public university in the world - counts on wide collaborations with several research institutes like INFN, CNR and INAF.
The overall scientific community amounts to more than 100 faculty people, almost 100 scientists of the above mentioned research institutes, and many fellows, post-docs and other research assistants. More than 40 per year, in the average, are the PhD students. About 20-30% of the PhD students are non-Italian.
The research subjects at Department and collaborating institutes cover almost all topics of physics and in some cases interdisciplinary subjects. For further details, see on the web sites of the Department and Institutes given above.
A master's degree is required for admission. To achieve the PhD degree, research results have to be published in peer reviewed international scientific journals.
