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.

SEENET-MTP Balkan Workshop BW2018 held in Niš

The SEENET-MTP Balkan Workshop BW2018 – Field Theory and the Early Universe, was held from 10-14 of June 2018, in Niš, Serbia.

The Workshop represents a resumption of a series of schools and workshops initiated by the BW2003 Workshop. A total of 50 participants attended the BW2018, with around 30 lectures being held.

The scientific part of the Workshop included recent developments in Beyond the Standard Cosmological Model(s) and related fields. This presented an excellent opportunity to gather the leading experts from South-East, Central and Eastern Europe, EU, USA, to discuss open problems and perspectives in the main scientific areas of the Workshop.

The educational and organizational part included discussions related to regional and inter-regional cooperation in Science and Education. A series of round tables were organized, with a few invited lecturers and moderators from CEI, UNESCO, European Physical Society (EPS), Balkan Physical Union (BPU), CERN and ICTP. The round-table discussions were focused on actions promoting and strengthening research, education and capacity-building in physics in natural sciences with an emphasis on South Eastern Europe, in a European and worldwide framework.

A meeting of the Scientific-Advisory Committee of the SEENET-MTP Network was held during the Workshop. It was announced that the ICTP will join the current bilateral agreement between CERN and the SEENET-MTP, and financially support the next three-year cycle of the PhD Training Program, for the period 2019-2022.

A part of the Workshop was dedicated to the regional celebration of the 50 years of the EPS, as well as to the marking of the 15 years of the SEENET-MTP Network’s existence. For their great contribution to the development of the Network, Awards of Merit have been presented to Prof. Loriano Bonora and the EPS.

The Workshop was coorganized by the SEENET-MTP Office and the Faculty of Sciences and Mathematics, University of Niš, Serbia, as well as the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, University of Craiova, Romania. The event was organized in collaboration and with support by the University of Niš, CEI, EPS and the national ministry of science.
