Position Description

The study program lasts 4 years and is completed by a public defense of doctoral dissertation. The program of study is adopted to the needs of individual students, depending on their prior training and research interests. Study and research opportunities for doctoral students are comprehensive and interdisciplinary, covering inorganic, organic, inorganic, physical, analytical, computational, and theoretical chemistry, food chemistry, materials chemistry, atmospheric and environmental chemistry. During the first two years of studies, PhD students have to take 4-5 doctoral courses (30 ECTS) in broad areas or special topics. Subsequent years focus on thesis research only and writing the dissertation. Research is typically started during the first year of study. Original research, performed under the direction of a supervisor and consultants, plays a major role in this degree.

A broad range of grants provided by the KTU doctoral fund and the fund for international events, Erasmus and other international programs, allow PhD students to visit partner universities and research centers abroad or to take participation in the international scientific conferences or summer training schools. The international training opportunities covers also the agreements on joint PhD supervising or joint PhD programs with other EU universities.
