Supervisors Physics (III. level)

Supervisor of a doctoral student must be a university teacher, holding a title Assistant Professor, Associate Professor or Full Professor, or researcher with a doctoral degree, with research experiences in the field of the dissertation topic. Supervisors can also be external, not necessarily employed at UNG.
Student can have one or two supervisors. Two supervisors are nominated when the topic of dissertation is interdisciplinary and one supervisor cannot offer adequate expert support in all fields included in the dissertation topic. In case that the candidate has two supervisors, they are considered at the same rank, and take same responsibilities for the student.
Supervisor must offer doctoral student adequate expert support and advice regarding the preparation of the dissertation from the point of view of the scientific content, scientific and technical terminology, and proper layout of the dissertation.
The supervisor of the student cannot be a member of the commission for the evaluation of the dissertation. The supervisors have to attend the dissertation defence but they are not eligible to vote.
Students select working supervisor at the beginning of the study, immediately after enrolment in the study program, and informs the director of the study program about his choice. Working supervisor offers doctoral student adequate expert support and advice regarding the choice of the research field and dissertation topic, and according with the research direction, advices the student which elective courses to choose on the program.
The supervisors are formally nominated by the Senate of UNG, at the same time as the Senate nominates the members of the evaluation commission for the dissertation and approves the dissertation title and topic. The director of the study program submits to the Senate of UNG the proposal for nomination of the student supervisor(s), together with the proposal of the members of the evaluation commission for the dissertation evaluation, and the students’ argumentation of the dissertation topic. Doctoral students must submit argumentation of the dissertation topic latest by the end of the second year of study, as defined in the Formal procedures for the submission, examination and defence of the dissertation.
