With headquarters in the Department of Physics (DFTE), the Postgraduate Program in Physics (PPGF) offers Masters and PhD courses, as well as Post-Doctoral studies in the areas of Condensed Matter (Theoretical and Experimental), Statistical Physics and Complex Systems, Field Theory, Astronomy and Cosmology, involving a large number of lines of research. With more than 30 years of tradition, PPGF maintains an international profile, evaluated as a center of excellence with concept 6 by CAPES, an aspect that is the result of the excellent academic qualification and experience of its Faculty now composed of more than 30 Faculty Professors. The PPGF has already formed more than 200 Masters and 139 Doctors, with 93 students currently enrolled, coming from different regions of the country, as well as from abroad.
The Graduate Program in Physics and the Department of Physics of UFRN work with the aim of maximizing the level of success of its Masters and Doctoral students, Post Doctors and the research carried out here. Of course, it is remarkable that the task of making PPGF and DFTE an exciting and productive place is facilitated by the intriguing natural beauty, cultural richness and diversity of the Christmas city. Therefore, if you are a potential candidate, we hope to have you on our Team. Inquire about our research lines, our Faculty, the requirements for registration and the general norms of our Graduate.
