Programme description

The aim of the UCA doctoral Programme is that PhD students produce an original research work as well as acquire sound knowledge of the principal spheres of action, the most relevant techniques and the current issues with the greatest impact on society related to nanoscience and materials technology. Training is complemented with activities for fostering transversal competences acquisition: scientific information and communication management, development of organizational, management and employability skills.

The Programme allows students to carry out research and interdisciplinary work in any of the three research areas offered, as well as research works co-directed in joint collaboration with other universities. The teaching staff and resources are made available by the Electron Microscopy and Materials Institute of the University of Cadiz. For its successful development, the Programme relies on the scientific equipment available at the UCA’s Central Service of Science and Technology.

Qualifications required

Candidates of any nationality who hold a master’s degree in Sciences or Engineering, with a keen interest in research into materials structure at micro- and nanoscale, physical and chemical properties of materials, as well as their technological applications. The admission requirements include the candidate’s prior education, professional and research activities relevant to the Programme and personal motivation. Likewise, creativity, willingness to innovate and transfer knowledge to society and commitment to sustainability will be an asset.
