PhD opportunities in Physical Sciences

Physical Sciences are included in Doctoral School at Gdańsk University of Technology, Poland, which is regarded to be the first research university in Poland among universities of technology according to domestic rankings. This program concerns the following disciplines:

  1. physical sciences
  2. materials engineering
  3. control, electronic and electrical engineering

The research areas in physical sciences include experimental and theoretical physics as well as atomic and molecular physics. Among them, there are studies of organic optoelectronic devices; optically anisotropic materials; light and charge particle interactions with atomic and molecular systems; computational methods in atomic physics; relativistic effects in atoms; photophysics of light-harvesting molecular systems; theoretical research on quantum information theory; special functions applications; applied acoustics and many other.

The research area in control, electronic and electrical engineering is related to energy conversion; electrified transport; power electronics, equipment, systems, plants and energy economy; systems state and parameters estimation; computational intelligence; fractional order modelling and control; modelling and control of biological processes in wastewater systems; control systems and engineering; detection, classification and protection of ferromagnetic vessels; mechatronics systems in biomedical engineering; technologies of diamond, carbon, electronic and biomedical materials; modelling and construction of optical fiber sensors; designing electronic systems; control and industrial diagnostics; designing electromagnetic sensors; modelling, design, optimization and implementation of semiconductor devices.

PhD opportunities in Physical Sciences

Materials engineering is the discipline where advanced engineering and cutting-edge science meet. The PhD students research how to design and manipulate the structure and properties of materials at the macroscopic and molecular and atomic level. The research areas in materials engineering include advanced ceramics engineering; physical properties of materials; biomaterials engineering; nanostructures; non-destructive testing of materials; polymer and soft matter engineering; materials for medical applications; materials and systems for energy harvesting and storage and many others.

The scientific research is supported by the PhD programme which aims at teaching doctoral students innovative, novel techniques, methodologies and implementations focused on engineering aspects related to the chosen discipline. It covers a wide spectrum of topics and includes obligatory and facultative courses as well as lectures conducted by visiting professors. The programme provides the doctoral students with the required background, allowing them to develop their own ideas and concepts, as well as creative problem solving skills. The individual contact with a supervisor and participation in the research conducted under his/her leadership is one of the most important elements of education. The graduates of the PhD programme have knowledge and skills in the field of engineering within the chosen discipline. They are qualified either to enter an industry or to continue their research in academia.

Education is conducted in English and lasts four years. All PhD students at our School receive fellowships and there is no tuition fee. Additionally, special fellowships from IDUB project are granted to internationals students on the top of regular fellowship. In order to apply, candidates have to select prospective supervisors and registered at our web-page. Process of admission includes application evaluation, an interview and requires from a candidate to have an official certificate of English (at least B2 level) recognized by the school. Each candidate must find prospective supervisor from our School in order to register. Enrollment for AY 2021/2022 will start on June 21, 2021. Deadline for registration and submitting documents is July 8, 2021 at 9.00 AM CEST. All other details are given at our web-page.
