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.
