Why Study Physics?
Physics is the most fundamental science and the backbone of most exact sciences. It encompasses phenomena ranging from the scale of galaxies down to that of the smallest particles. It unravels the basic laws governing our reality but at the same time explores complex structures as those emerging in biology and condensed matter.
Physics has led to great discoveries such as relativity, transistors, LEDs, and lasers. The diverse set of tools physicists learn, enables them to tackle a large scope of problems in topics including health, finance, renewable energy, and artificial intelligence. Thus beyond being the first step in a potential academic career, the set of skills physicist acquires are well sought after in the industry.
Why study at HUJI?
The Hebrew University is ranked in the top 100 universities in the world and often ranked as the best university in Israel. It has the largest number of physics faculty members in Israel which contributes to the diversity and quality of topics being taught. The combination of world-renowned researchers, excellent students, and a unique intellectual atmosphere on campus makes it an obvious top choice for those seeking a degree in fundamental physics.
The Ph.D. program is a 4-year degree (sometimes extended to 5) in which students master a subfield of physics. Doctoral students perform research at the highest level, advancing the state of the art in their subfields. Upon successful completion, our Ph.D. students take their place among the nation’s scientific leaders, in both academia and industry.
