Candidates with a MSc degree in mathematics or physics are invited to complete a one-year pre-PhD programme at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy. Participants will benefit from a scholarship that covers programme-related expenses. The deadline is on Monday 15th February 2021.
The Postgraduate Diploma Programme started in 1991, and since then, many of its graduates have gone on to do PhDs at various prestigious universities, including in Europe and North America.
Many of them, after a few postdoctoral stints abroad, have returned to their home countries, where they are actively involved in teaching and in developing advanced research groups there.
Studies consist of basic and advanced courses in condensed matter physics, quantitative life sciences, mathematics, and high energy, cosmology, and astro-particle physics.
In each Postgraduate Diploma Programme, scholarships and travel grants will be awarded to those 10 students selected from developing countries. There are no course fees.
Students will receive a monthly scholarship of €450 for the entire year of study. Accommodation is provided by ICTP.
Since the Postgraduate Diploma Programme is in English, fluency in speaking and writing is an essential qualification.
The deadline is on Monday 15th February 2021.
The minimum qualification for applicants is a degree equivalent to an MSc (or an exceptionally good BSc) in physics, mathematics or a related field.
The selection of the candidates is based on their university performance as well as on academic recommendations.
University transcripts and two letters of recommendation are required.
