PhD theses and post-doctoral training
Our researchers supervise around 50 PhD candidates conducting their doctoral research at the INRASTES premises, on an annual basis. Due to the interdisciplinarity of our activities, research topics fall under chemistry, nuclear engineering, health sciences and biology, energy and environmental sciences, applied physics and material science, food safety, industrial safety and security etc. PhD degrees are awarded from Academic institutions in Greece or abroad, in collaboration with the teaching staff at their Engineering, Chemistry, Biology, Pharmacy, Medical, Physics, Mathematics etc. Departments.
Our PhD graduates often choose to pursue postdoctoral positions at Universities and Research Centers in Europe and the US, while others follow a career in the Greek industry or academia. INRASTES researchers also provide guidance to junior postdoctoral researchers, as continuation of their doctoral research at INRASTES, or after they complete their PhD in other research organizations.
PhD candidates and postdocs usually receive funding from their participation in European or national research projects run within the INRASTES groups. So our students have frequently the opportunity to gain valuable experience from working in multidisciplinary and/or multicultural research teams. Since 2017, INRASTES participates in the Industrial Fellowship Programme of NCSR “Demokritos” funded jointly by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation and companies of the private sector. The SNF Fellows conduct applied research on selected topics, and aim to propose innovative solutions and products for the participating companies.
For more information on postgraduate opportunities please contact directly individual researchers working on your topics of interests or talk to the INRASTES Education Officers (see below). For current job openings, please visit our job advertising page.
