Admission to the Physics Ph.D. programme (40th cycle)

[9/5/2024] The announcement for the selection of candidates for admission to the 40th cycle of the PhD in Physics has been published on May 20 on the web pages of the Sapienza doctoral office. The selection for admission will begin with a written test to be held on the morning of Monday, June 24, 2024 in the Amaldi and Cabibbo classrooms of the Department of Physics. In this folder the written tests of the 39th cycle admission competition are available (version 3 also has the solutions because it was the one drawn), together with a syllabus for this year entrance exam, a brief description of the fellowships funded on research projects and some indications on ho wthe oral exam will be conducted. FURTHER INFORMATION FOR FOREIGN STUDENTS. To apply for a Ph.D. fellowship is mandatory to take part in the written exam to be done in presence on June 24, 2024 in the Physics Department at Sapienza University of Rome. Foreign students who can not participate in such a written exam can apply for a Ph.D. position WITHOUT a fellowship (this means they will need to obtain a fellowship from other sources). ...


The Physics PhD Program at Sapienza is finalized to training scientific researchers with a wide spectrum of scientific knowledge: we expect them to be flexible with regards to all possible job related choices, and to be able to easily reach a high professional level in all fields where physics research is active. In a first period students will take advanced courses, and later they will enter deep in the research activities.

The Physics Department at Sapienza University of Rome is the largest among this discipline in Italy for number of faculty and students and hosts a vibrant research activity in the main areas of Fundamental and Applied Physics:
- Astronomy, Astrophysics and Geophysics
- Biophysics, Medical Physics, and Cultural Heritage
- Condensed Matter Physics and Physics of Biosystems
- Particle Physics and Fundamental Interactions
- Statistical and Mathematical Physics

The various research areas differ in terms of experimental equipment, calculation tools and the extent of spin-offs, but they share the method of investigation and the approach to problem solving.

Our Research Activity involves developing complex experimental equipment in-house or in the major Research Labs worldwide, developing theoretical models of different physical phenomena, and publishing scientific papers (around 600 per year) on the most prestigious international scientific journals. The Department hosts researchers from the main Italian Research Insitutes, such as the National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN), National Research Council (CNR), the National Institute for Astrophysics (INAF), the Italian Space Agency (ASI), and the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT). Our Department, the largest in Sapienza, hosts a total of about 300 active researchers.
