Doctoral Programme

The main aim of the curriculum in Astroparticle Physics is to provide the entrance points and the scientific and cultural tools to participate successfully to the researches in particle physics, nuclear physics and astrophysics, high energy astrophysics, gravitation and cosmology. A special attention will be given to experimental and phenomenological aspects. Moreover, the PhD student in Astroparticle Physics at GSSI will have a special opportunity to follow and participate to the research conducted at  the Gran Sasso National Laboratories (LNGS), with its wide community of scientists from all over the world.

The Astroparticle Physics curriculum consists of 3 years of study and research. The first year a wide choice of courses will cover a large spectrum of topics and the year will be concluded by a final exam. Students will work on a research project under the supervision of one or more teachers and scientists of the GSSI, of the INFN Gran Sasso National Laboratory and/or of the professors of the University of L'Aquila. Interdisciplinary approaches to the studies and research, exchanges of ideas and innovations are strongly encouraged.
