The first call for applications for the new edition of the PhD Program in Mathematics UC|UP (starting September 2019) will be open during January 02, 2019 - February 04, 2019
The prize Eng. António de Almeida for the best doctoral thesis defended at FCUP in the years 2015 to 2017 in the areas of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science was awarded to Célia Borlido for her thesis "The word problem and some reducibility properties for pseudo- varieties of the form DRH", supervised by Prof. Jorge Almeida within the scope of PIUDM.
Normally, candidates are required to have completed a degree in Mathematics (or a related area) of one of the following types:
Applications from candidates who are expected to satisfy the above requirement before the planned date of start of their doctoral studies within the program are welcome. If accepted, admission will be conditioned on completion of one of the required degrees.
However, for applying for a scholarship the academic degree must be completed by September 18, and if the academic degree has been awarded by a foreign institution a proof of recognition/equivalence to a Portuguese degree might be necessary.
Exceptionally, candidates whose scientific, academic and professional curriculum demonstrates ability to pursue doctoral studies may also apply. It is up to the Steering Committee to evaluate whether the special conditions are met. For this purpose, instead of the habilitations certificate, candidates should include a transcript (official listing of courses already completed and the corresponding grades).
Deadline for applications 2018/19The call for applications to the Program is open this year between January 2 and February 2.The maximum number of students to be admitted in the 2018/19 edition is 25.
