Advancing Theoretical Astrophysics Summer School

December 24th, 2018 No comments

The Advancing Theoretical Astrophysics Summer School is a two week long, international summer school intended to build and strengthen essential skills in physics and computation for a career in theoretical astrophysics.

The school will be held at the University of Amsterdam (Netherlands) from 15 to 26 July 2019.

The target groups for this school are graduate students pursuing a
degree in astrophysics, with a BSc degree in physics or astrophysics. The school will be a mix of short topical lectures and interactive problem solving, using methods that can be applied to a wide range of topics. Students will work collaboratively on several types of canonical problems (with guidance from teachers and more advanced students), gaining hands-on experience with cutting-edge techniques employed in modern theoretical astrophysics.

Deadline for the application is 15 January 2019. More information about the school is available here.

SISSA open call: Various PhD courses in Theoretical Physics

September 28th, 2018 No comments

The International School of Advanced Studies (SISSA) is one of the leading scientific institutions in Italy for postgraduate training in Physics, Mathematics, and Neuroscience. Unlike most universities, SISSA is fully devoted to PhD training, and hence the set of courses the students are offered during their first year is particularly wide, advanced, and intense. In particular our students devote the entire first year of their Ph.D. in attending a wide set of selected courses.

Starting from the academic year 2017-2018, the group of Theoretical Particle Physics (TPP) has planned to host for a given amount of time, ranging from a three-months term to the entire academic year (three terms), a number of selected Ph.D. students from other institutions, and give them the possibility to attend our course program.

The program is open to students at any stage of their PhD and not only to beginners.

The list of courses offered for the academic year 2018-2019 can be found here. In addition to these courses, more specialised ones, typically addressed to advanced students and post-docs, are also offered.

After this period, students are expected to go back to their home institutions and continue their Ph.D. research project with their own supervisors. Partial financial support of approximately 500 euros/month towards living expenses is provided. Details on how to apply can be found here.
