Mirosymposium “Joint Symposium of the International PhD Programs” 05-08.10.2012, Pultusk

The Joint Symposium of the International PhD Programs was hold in Pultusk on October 05- 08,2012. This meeting was organised by coordinators of three editions of the MPD Program, including our MPD/2010/4  "Towards Advanced Functional Materials and Novel Devices
– Joint UW and WUT International PhD Programme".

In this symposium over 100 participants took part, including PhD students (42), scientists (including PhD students advisors) from the Faculty of Chemistry Warsaw University of Technology, the Faculty of Chemistry University of Warsaw, Institute of Biochemistry and Biophysics Polish Academy of Science and International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology Polish Academy of Science in Warsaw (52) as well as invited guests.

Invited lectures were delivered by  professors: dr Laurent Marot (University of Basel, Switzerland), prof. Adam Proń (Warsaw University of Technology, Poland) and prof. Gary Blanchard (Michigan State University, USA).

PhD students reported their recent scientific results which they obtained in Poland and/or during their foreign traineeships. Results were shown as oral or poster presentation. After each lecture was lively discussion. It is worth mentioning the high rate of presentations (on both: the merits and form) from the group of professors present at the sessions.

Among the awarded for the best poster presentation were PhD Students of Faculty of Chemistry WUT: mgr inż. Magdalena Matczuk (Supevisors: prof. dr hab. inż. Maciej Jarosz and prof. dr hab. Zbigniew Czarnocki) and mgr Anton Stasyuk (Supervisors: prof. dr hab. Daniel Gryko and dr hab. Michał Cyrański).

The Microsymposium were visited also by Rector WUT (prof. dr hab. inż. Jan Szmidt) and representatives from Foundation of Polish Science in the persons of: president FNP - prof. Maciej Żylicz, director of programs financed by European Funds - dr Michał Pietras and dr Beata Frączak.

All participants agreed the symposium was very successful project in terms of the evaluation of PhD students research progress and giving the opportunity to exchange ideas between experienced and novice researchers.

The International PhD program - supported by the Polish Foundation of Science - is offered by the Faculties of Chemistry of Warsaw University of Technology and University of Warsaw, Poland. The program designed in cooperation with well-recognized international research Partner institutions is entitled

"Towards Advanced Functional Materials and Novel Devices
– Joint UW and WUT International PhD Programme"

Subjects of thesis are divided into five work-packages reflecting increasing complexity of the studied materials:

  • New reagents for synthesis and components for functional materials (PhD subjects: UW-1, UW-2, UW-3).
  • Design and characterization of materials (PhD subjects: PW-1, PW-2, UW-4).
  • Semiconducting materials, charge storage and organic light emitting devices (PhD subjects: PW-3, UW-5, PW-4).
  • Bioactive molecules for medicine and food (PhD subjects: UW-6, PW-5, PW-6, PW-7).
  • Biosensing materials and devices (PhD subjects: PW-8, PW-9, PW-10, UW-7).


The Program aims to train future scientists able to work in highly competitive environment and with abilities to work across disciplines. The PhD students will present results on international thematic conferences to a broad international scientific audience and publish them in the international, peer-reviewed journals. Two workshops will be organized at the end of second year and in the fourth year of studies with participation of researchers from Partner Institutions. The aim is to promote scientific career among young people and initiate collaboration between research teams in Poland.

Duration of the program is 4 years, including 6-24 months spent abroad in the foreign Partner institutions.

A fellowship of 3000 PLN/month (tax-free) + 500 PLN/month (insurance) is offered, which compares well with the average salary in Poland. An additional allowance of 1500 PLN /month will be provided for the stay at the foreign partner institution.
