The primary goal of the Ph.D. course in chemistry is the training in order to obtain proper skills in the chemistry field, to carry on an independent and autonomous research activity. Such skills will be important to be spent in many different situations and institutions, in particular, public research institutions (like Universities and Research Institutes) or private companies. In this respect Ph.D., students will be trained with a continuous and intense experimental research activity as well as specific high-level courses, in order to be competitive at the international level. The future Ph.D. will be trained with all experimental and theoretical tools necessary to manage general problems which will be encountered when developing new chemical compounds or processes, as well as their industrial implications. Special care will be devoted to the international mobility opportunities and to the ability to present and rationalize the results in an effective manner.
Job placement opportunities
The job placement opportunities of a future Ph.D. will be rather wide. First, the adequate job opportunity would be that of a researcher in public institutions or private companies. In particular, the Ph.D. title would be important when special need to manage and carry on research or complex problems solving are necessary to be performed in an independent, autonomous and creative way. Also, special responsibility positions in industries or large companies would be suitable for Ph.D.
