Doctoral programmes

Dynamics of flows biogeochemical Interuniversity doctoral programme and its applications

The program is taught jointly by the universities of Granada (Coordinator), Cordoba and Malaga. Convention UGR-UCO-UMA

The lines of research proposed by the three participating universities teams focus on the study of biogeochemical of coating flows planetary boundary, rivers, dams, transitional waters and Oceanic and the integral management of resources related to these flows.

All approach is of specialized manner, but from a multidisciplinary perspective, analyzing and taking into account:

  1. The environmental implications in aspects as the quality of water, population dynamics, or erosion processes.
  2. The implications of socio‐economicas in subjects concerning safety, reliability and operational capacity of the infrastructure needed for its management.
  3. The randomness that the biogeochemical processes inherit from agents Forcers, i.e. bounded uncertainty and analyzing risk.
  4. The evidence of climate variability

Doctoral programme in physics and space sciences

The main objective that the students who decide to pursue these postgraduate studies are satisfied that assume their main aspiration: acquire knowledge and skills of the highest academic level in any field of physics.

The set of proposed research is sufficiently large to ensure that the student will find a field that is closest to their interests, their vocation or academic and occupational aspirations. You can effectively carry out research activities and finally obtained his doctor’s degree in areas ranging from stellar, Galactic and planetary Astrophysics to nanostructures used as sensors or memory elements. You can find lines that are usually included as part of classical physics (optics or mechanics of fluids) and others related to particle physics, or Nuclear Physics.
