Aims: The Doctoral Programme proposed is directly geared to research in the fields of physics. The programme trains the doctoral students to conduct research and teach in the public and private sectors. Our programme covers fields of basic physics (theoretical and experimental nuclear and particle physics and astrophysics) and fields of relevant physical applications (photonic and medical physics). The doctoral studies shall, at minimum, guarantee the acquisition by the doctoral students of the basic competencies which are in the Spanish Qualifications Framework for Higher Education, specifically: systematic understanding of a field of study of legal sciences, and mastery of its skills and methods of research; ability to conceive, design or create, implement and adapt a substantial process of research and creation; ability to make a critical and assessment analysis, and synthesis of new and complex ideas, as well as communication with the academic and scientific community and society in general about their fields of knowledge; and and ability to promote, within academic and professional contexts, scientific, technological, social, artistic or cultural advance in a knowledge-based society. The main aim is the development and defence of a doctoral thesis in Physics, in which process the doctoral student must provide an extensive professional training in various fields, especially those that require creativity and innovation. It shall provide skills to cope with contexts with little specific information, find the key questions that must be answered to solve a complex problem, design, create, develop and launch new and innovative projects in their field of knowledge, etc.

Description: The programme trains the doctoral students to conduct research and teach in the public and private sectors. The significance of the contribution of physics to technological development, and therefore the training of technologists, is crucial in any modern society that hopes to base its development on the leading knowledge. This programme covers fields of basic physics (theoretical and experimental nuclear and particle physics and astrophysics) and fields of relevant physical applications (photonic and medical physics). This coexistence is highly successful, enabling the development of common spaces, such as applications of nuclear physics to medical physics or converging lines of nonlinear optics and quantum optics with complex systems and foundations of quantum mechanics. This doctoral programme involve doctors of the following departments of the Universitat de València who collaborate in the organization thereof: Astronomy and Astrophysics, Applied Physics and Electromagnetism, Atomic, Molecular and Nuclear Physics, Theoretical and Optical Physics, doctors of CSIC through the Institute of Corpuscular Physics (Joint Centre of the Universitat de València-CSIC) and the Institute of Instrumentation for Molecular Imaging and doctors of the General Foundation of the Universitat de València which are attached as researchers to the departments or institutes mentioned above. Doctors in Physics from other departments of our University, Earth Physics and Thermodynamics, Physiology and from University Hospitals also participate. All this adds up a total of 148 doctors qualified to direct theses. Finally, foreign doctors participate both in joint supervision and as unique supervisor.
