The International Centre for Theoretical Physics offers of partial as well as fully funded scholarships for students to undertake Master of Advanced Studies in Medical Physics Program.
The MMP is a two-year advanced training programme run jointly by ICTP and the University of Trieste. The programme is designed to provide young, promising graduates of physics or related fields (mainly from developing countries) with postgraduate theoretical and clinical training so that they may be recognised as clinical medical physicists in their home countries.
The Programme is open to young (generally below 30 years of age) qualified graduates from countries that are members of the United Nations, UNESCO or IAEA. Basically, the minimum academic qualification for applicants is a degree equivalent to an MSc in physics or related fields. The selection of candidates will depend upon their university performance, research activity and professional experience in the field. In addition to that, adequate proficiency in the English language is necessary.
The International Centre for Theoretic Physics offers a limited number of fully funded or partial scholarships to successful candidates from developing countries. The funding of the scholarships comes from IAEA, TWAS and ICTP. Full scholarships include travel, registration fees and a monthly stipend of 900 euro in the first year and 1000 euro in the second. However, partial scholarships cover half support: travel, registration fees and a monthly stipend of 450 euro in the first and 500 in the second year or, only travel and registration fees.
The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) is an international research institute for physical and mathematical sciences that operates under a tripartite agreement between the Italian Government, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), and International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). It is located near Miramare Park, about 10 kilometres from the city of Trieste, Italy.
Interested candidates for the Master of Advanced Studies in Medical Physics must complete the online application form. In addition to application form, the applicant has to submit a CV, a transcription of the university degree and can also submit a letter of recommendation from senior scientists familiar with the applicant. Scientists making recommendations should indicate if they have any contacts at the ICTP.
The last day to submit an application is 17 May 2020.
