PhD PROGRAM

’Physics of Nanostructures and Advanced Materials’ is one of the new official Ph.D. programs offered by the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU). It is as a continuation of the previously existing program that was recognized by the Spanish Ministry of Education as a highly-qualified Ph.D. program (Mención hacia la excelencia MEE2011-0591).

This Ph.D. program is adequate for students with a background in Physics, Chemistry, Material Science and related topics, after completing a master program (or having an equivalent degree). The interested students must apply for the pre-registration in the PhD program (two calls each academic year, in September and April respectively) by using a WEB based system. The detailed information can be found here: http://www.ehu.es/en/web/mde/doktorego-programan-izena-ematea

The period for developing the Ph.D. program (3 years) will be mostly devoted to the research project. At the end of this period, the PhD work has to be defended at the UPV/EHU in order to obtain the official (Spanish) Ph.D. degree by the UPV/EHU. It is intended that the majority of the Ph.D. thesis works followed in the framework of this Ph.D. program will meet the requirements for obtaining the ´Doctor International´ mention. 
 

Research lines involved in the Ph.D. Program:

The research groups responsible of the PNAM Ph.D. program are those belonging to the Center of Material Physics (joint center CSIC-UPV/EHU) and/or the Material Physics Department (UPV/EHU). The main research lines of these groups are:

· Chemical Physics of Complex Materials.
· Electronic Properties at the Nanoscale.
· Nanostructures, biomolecules, and advanced materials.
· Experimental characterization of nanoscopic systems.
· Nanostructured polymeric materials.
· Photonics.
· Magnetism of micro/nano-crystalline materials.

In addition, other research lines related with the applications of nanomaterials and nanotechnology, as those developped in several technological centers in the sourronding, are also considered. The connection between the various technological centers and the PNAM Ph.D. program is coordinated by the research center CIC Nanogune.

Finally, the PNAM Ph.D. program is a part of the "Physics and Chemistry of Advanced Materials" European Doctorate (link: http://www.pcam-doctorate.eu/) opening the possibility of developing the Ph.D. thesis work in close collaboration with any of the involved research groups.
