Space Sciences

A PhD, also known as a Doctor of Philosophy degree, is a doctorate awarded by a university to the academic who has met all necessary qualifications and can now be considered a doctor in his or her academic field.

Spatial sciences is the study of gathering, organizing, managing, and analyzing data with a locational component. Also known as geomatics, this field is increasingly important in a world that is becoming more data-driven every year.

Officially known as the Italian Republic, the country is found in southern Europe. The official language is Italian and the cultural rich capital is Rome. Many of the world's oldest universities are located in Italy, in particular the University of Bologna (founded in 1088). There are three Superior Graduate Schools with "university status", three institutes with the status of Doctoral Colleges, which function at graduate and post-graduate level.

Best Doctors of Philosophy in Space Sciences in Italy 2017/2018. There has never been a better time to work in Astrophysics, a vibrant and competitive discipline in frontier research. Applicants to the PhD program in Astrophysics will first be assessed on the basis of their CV and reference letters. A number of candidates will be invited for an interview on one of the two announced dates. The PhD course consists of 3 to 4 years of study and research. First-year students are required to attend several courses spanning a period from November to May and to take exams in a selection of those courses. At the beginning of the first year, students are assigned a tutor, a SISSA staff member who will advise them on selecting exams and will provide guidance on choosing a research project for their PhD thesis. After completion of the courses, students will start working on their research project under the supervision of one or more SISSA staff members. The Astrophysics group consists of 8 staff members, 7 postdoctoral fellows and 20 PhD students. All the principal investigators have recognized expertise in the fields of analysis and interpretation of cosmic microwave background and sub-millimetre surveys, large- scale structure surveys, cluster physics, galaxy formation and evolution, dark energy, dark matter, galactic and extragalactic black holes, stellar structure and evolution, high-energy astrophysics, relativistic astrophysics, early Universe physics and gravitation theory. Students will also benefit from close contact with other SISSA groups, such as the Astroparticle Physics and the... [-]

University of Göttingen
Campus Full time 6 semesters October 2017 Italy Rome Padua + 1 more

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. [+]

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... [-]
