Call for admission to PhD Course in Fusion Science and Engineering is open - Applications will be accepted until 06-October-2017 at 13:00 CEST

THE DEADLINE FOR THIS CALL IS 6 OCTOBER 2017 at 13:00 CEST

The new organization of the European fusion program – managed by the EUROFUSION consortium– gives strong emphasis to education and training, since to enter successfully the said ITER era, the European fusion community needs to boost the number of its scientists, both in engineering and in physics.

The aim of the doctorate programme is to provide a high-level research-oriented education in fusion science and engineering, in close relation to the research activities of the Doctoral Network partners, in close cooperation with industry.
The combined and harmonized teaching and research of the partner institutions with the research facilities offered by the Doctoral Network partners offers a far greater variety of competences in the field of fusion science and engineering physics than could be provided for by each of the single universities, and therefore guarantees a significant added value for the students in terms of specialization opportunities, which allow to interact with companies and energy utility sector as well. High-tech companies will be in fact deeply involved in the challenging construction of future devices and in subsequent fusion development.
