Why you should attend our International PhD Programme in Science (IDPS)
The IDPS is a 4-year PhD programme designed to let the students develop innovative projects at the forefront of different disciplines, such as Nanotechnology, Physics, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Mathematics among top universities worldwide.
Established in 2016, the International P.h.D. in Science aims at:
- providing the opportunity to achieve a dual degree
- offering wide opportunities to learn and experience different environments
- supporting each student with joint supervision joint supervision on research projects involving two of the participating universities and two dedicated tutors
- enjoying a vibrant environment: Università Cattolica is the head of the project; the city of Brescia, is both a modern city and a city of art and history close to Milan and to the wonderful, internationally renewed, lakes and vineyards.
Students are recruited to work under joint supervision on research projects involving two of the participating universities, with a mandatory stay of at least one year in each university.
Each student will hence have one tutor from the financing institution and one tutor from the collaborating institution.
Application deadline: August 23rd , 2022, 2.00 pm
