Ph.D. program

The SISSA Mathematical Physics Sector runs two PhD curricula, both offering the opportunity to develop the unique skills required in the fields of Mathematical Physics and Geometry.

The sector offers a wide range of postgraduate courses. Lectures are delivered both by staff members as well as leading experts who are invited on a regular basis to bring the specific skills associated to their fields of research. Students are offered financial support to attend workshops and conferences, enabling them to establish contacts within the international scientific community. The collective focus is on intensive training, to help students conduct independent research of the highest academic standard. The environment for students within the PhD Programs is both stimulating and supportive.

SISSA, though relatively young, is one of the leading scientific institutions in Italy and is a noted center on the international stage. It keeps growing since its foundation, and recently moved to its new location near Opicina. A minibus ensures the connection with the ICTP, while a 10′ bus ride brings downtown. Together with the ICTP, the University of Trieste, and the AREA Science Park, SISSA contributes to make of Trieste a city of science.
