Our department has a large number of active and internationally renowned researchers and postdoctorates. The research groups organise regular seminars, where top-ranking scientists from around the world present new results, which our research students can witness firsthand. The students also organise their own informal seminars and discussion groups. The lively environment and the exceptionally friendly atmosphere at our department contribute to the high success rate of our students. You can apply for supervision in all fields of interest of our staff members. There is enough flexibility to allow you to transfer to another supervisor should you become fascinated by an area you did not previously consider. The department holds several major grants, which enable PhD students to attend suitable schools and conferences during their studies.
