Doctoral curriculum 2017-2020. PhD students can follow the old curriculum (60 credits) if they graduate by July 2020. The new curriculum (40 credits) has been specified in relation to the compulsory element of research skills - at least 1 credit of research ethics studies is required. It can be completed for example in this Research Ethics course. (One can register for the 1 credit part of the course even though the number of students already exceeds the maximum.) 

The high school project and summer traineeships. The high school project will be carried out between  4.-29.6.2018. The old deal (supervise a high school student and get a summer trainee for 2 months paid by the Department) is on. Please inform Minttu if you're willing to supervise a high school student in June! 

JYU strategy work and vision 2030. The work will begin with current state pop up events in February. You can participate for example in the physics department lobby on 20–21 February. Share your opinion on what we are doing right – what would you like to keep and what to change.
