Doctoral Programme in Physical and Chemical Sciences
The Doctoral Programme in Physical and Chemical Sciences (PCS) is responsible for the doctoral education in astronomy, chemistry, materials science and engineering, physics and theoretical physics at the University of Turku.
Under the guidance of distinguished professors and supervisors the PCS provides comprehensive doctoral education in physical and chemical sciences.
Doctoral Programme in Physical and Chemical Sciences works in collaboration with
- Department of Physics and Astronomy
- Department of Chemistry
- Finnish Centre for Astronomy with ESO (FINCA)
Like all the 17 Doctoral Programmes of the University of Turku, PCS is part of the University of Turku Graduate School (UTUGS).
The UTUGS aims at providing high quality doctoral studies for the duration of four years and offers all the doctoral candidates attentive guidance and support by organising multidisciplinary training on academic topics, transferable skills and career planning.
UTUGS funded doctoral candidate position decision
For a Doctoral Candidate in Materials Science who is thirsty to learn with a will of becoming an independent scientist, I believe that the brainstormed teaching and excellent research supervision offered by the Professors here is of high standards which leads the Doctoral Candidates to an exciting and bright future.
