Every year the Condensed Matter group selects students to attend a Ph.D. programme. The students are selected through a competition based on academic qualifications and an interview held in Trieste (or via Skype/videoconference for candidates who can not reach Trieste). The School provides a contribution towards the travel expenses for attending the exam up to a maximum of 150 €.

Usually there are two calls per years, approximatively in March and September. Detailed application deadlines, dates and number of available positions of the entrance examinations are periodically posted on the PhD announcements webpage, where you can also download the application forms.

Enrollment of all the new students at SISSA and the beginning of classes in the Theory and Numerical Simulation of Condensed Matter Curriculum will take place in the first week of November.
