A list of thesis projects available in the different institutions (Sapienza, Tor Vergata, INAF-IAPS, INAF-OAAb, INAF-OAR) is visible below.
Note on the Thesis Project selection process: The thesis will be selected by the successful candidates on a first ranked first served base. The Coordinator will poll the successful candidates starting from the top of the ranking. The candidate ranking first will be able to select among all the available thesis projects. The second will select among all the remaining projects, and so on. After all the thesis and fellowhips in one institution have been assigned, the following candidates will be forced to select a thesis in one of the other institution, where there are still fellowships available.
This year there are 5 fellowships in Sapienza, 7 in Tor Vergata, 3 in INAF-IAPS, 1 in INAF-OAR and 1 in INAF-OAAb. Two of the thesis at INAF-IAPS are funded by research projects, and are labeled with **. These fellowhips can be used only to fund these projects. The other fellowships available at a given institution can be used to fund any of the thesis projects at that institution.
This PhD is a joint research program between the University of Rome “La Sapienza” and the University of Rome Tor Vergata, with the collaboration of the National Institute of Astrophysics (INAF). At the end of the program, PhD students will obtain a joint degree of the two Universities.
The aim of the Astronomy, Astrophysics and Space Science Ph.D. Program is the formation of a young researcher at a highly competitive international level.
The PhD program covers most of the topics of modern Astrophysics and Space Science of:
- Galactic and Extragalactic Astrophysics,
- Gravitation and Cosmology,
- Solar and Stellar Physics,
- Space Sciences,
in both their theoretical and observational aspects.
