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.
The program will be established by the Seminar course advisers.
The main goal is to give students the opportunity to have a first contact with the research activity developed by the PhD Program faculty. This is achieved by attending seminars delivered by teachers and researchers and also by giving talks in seminar sessions. The Seminar course aims to develop the following skills: knowledge of mathematical results; ability to formulate and solve problems; ability to communicate well and clearly, in speaking and writing. On the personal level it also allows to develop self-learning, research and communication skills.
