Here is the list of PhD topics for the application of 2016!

Here you can have a quick overview of the available topics. (To see the full description, click on a topic, scroll down and open "Original Document".)

Research fields:

 

F1. Tokamak physics for ITER and beyond

 

F2. Technology for ITER and beyond

F3. Stellarator and reversed field pinch research and advanced concepts

F4. Plasma-wall interaction and material research

F5. Plasma theory and computational plasma physics

F6. Diagnostics, plasma control and data analysis

 

By chosing your thesis topics, please keep the following regulation in mind:

The regulation for mobility is the following: Enrolled doctoral candidates carry out their research activities in at least two of the European countries* represented in the consortium; after the successful completion of the program, they will be awarded, on behalf of the consortium, a double, multiple or joint doctorate degree.

 

*These two European countries should be different from the country where the student has obtained his Master diploma.
