Physics

A PhD is the abbreviation for Doctor of philosophy. This degree is a post graduate program delivered to a high level student researcher who has done deep research in a specific field or subject.

A Physics PhD lets you develop of a broad background in basic physics, and expand your research abilities in a more specialized area such as Particle Physics, Astrophysics, Applied Physics, Quantum Physics, Optics and many more.

PhD in Physics of Biological and Complex Systems

 

The GGNB doctoral program / International Max Planck Research School "Physics of Biological and Complex Systems" is a member of the Göttingen Graduate School for Neurosciences and Molecular Biosciences (GGNB). It is conducted jointly by the University of Göttingen, the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, and the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization.The research-oriented program is taught in English and open to students who hold a Master's degree (or equivalent) in the physics, biophysics, chemistry, life sciences, medicine, or related fields.Building upon the increasingly strong links between physics, chemistry and the life sciences, the program aims at advancing the quantitative and molecular understanding of life processes while at the same time exploring new frontiers of physics. Research topics include biomolecular structure and dynamics, biological membranes, motor proteins and pattern formation in systems of interacting cells, neuronal information processing, and hydrodynamics and pattern formation of complex fluids.The program offers cutting-edge advanced microscopy courses and teaches the basics of new cutting-edge techniques essential for studying life processes in combination with quantitative physical approaches and synthetic strategies. An important aim is to overcome traditional barriers between disciplines and expose graduate students to physics, chemistry and biology for a deeper understanding of all areas preparing students for increasingly interdisciplinary life sciences....

International Max Planck Research School for Solar System Science at the University of Göttingen The Solar System School recruits and supports excellent junior researchers, offering them training towards a PhD degree in physics at an international graduate school in a vibrant geo- and astrophysics research environment. The Solar System School The "International Max Planck Research School for Solar System Science at the University of Göttingen" (IMPRS, Solar System School) is a collaboration of the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research and the University of Göttingen offering an international PhD programme in physics. The Solar System School is a research-oriented graduate programme hosted by the Max Planck Institute (MPS) on the Göttingen Campus in the centre of Germany. In this unique environment, the IMPRS School is run jointly with the Institute for Astrophysics and the Institute of Geophysics. Junior researchers joining the doctoral programme will find that these institutes offer excellent facilities, internationally renowned researchers and experienced teachers, and provide excellent conditions to specialise in the field of Solar System science. The research topics for doctoral theses address scientific problems from all areas of Solar System research represented at the institute, from geophysics and planetary physics to Solar and stellar physics as well as the underlying fundamental physics, computational physics, and space technology. High-profile space missions, outstanding projects for ground-based instruments and data analysis as well as theoretical and extensive numerical modeling provide a wide range of research possibilities for PhD students. During their three-year PhD education, the candidates are advised by senior scientists. About 50 highly qualified doctoral candidates from more than 30 countries study at the Solar System School at any given time. The language of instruction is English. The curriculum has been designed to impart a broad, interdisciplinary and solid scientific education in astronomy and astrophysics, solar physics, and planetary sciences. It also includes additional qualification courses relevant for academic or non-academic careers. Admittance to the programme is competitive and requires a Master of Science degree in physics or a related field, including a written Master's thesis. Calls for applications are issued once a year. Along with each call for applications, the School publishes a list of open PhD projects. Applications must be made through the online application portal. Successful applicants are offered a three-year doctoral support contract as well as postdoc wrap-up funding. Graduate students obtain their PhD degree in a major scientific discipline with optimal career opportunities. [-]
