During the course of your PhD thesis, you will be asked to take a set of training activities aimed at achieving the main competences that every PhD from the University of Jaen must develop by the end of doctoral studies:

Compulsory training activities

  • General: Framework of doctoral studies.
  • General: Framework of scientific research. Research policies.
  • General: Design and follow-up of research projects.
  • General: Knowledge transfer.
  • General: Dissemination of research results.
  • General: Employment and researcher career.
  • Specific: Relevant contribution from the PhD thesis.

In addition, the student may also get enrolled in other training activities (most of which are programme-specific), aimed at acquisition of specific competences of this doctoral programme.

Optional training activities:

  • General: Doctoral seminars.
  • Specific: Active participation in seminars, conferences, symposia, courses and workshops.
  • Specific: Short-term visit (minimum three months) to a foreign research institution (compulsory for students willing to achieve the International mention in their PhD degree).

You may check the calendar of training activities.

You can get more detailed information on the procedures for registration for the different activities and available grants.

All general training activities are in Spanish. Some specific training activities may be in English.

PhD students must pass a yearly evaluation of their activities. This includes general compulsory activities of doctoral studies and specific optional activities offered by the programme. After enrolment, you will receive a link for completion of your Student´s record of training activitiesand Research plan.

Each year, students must present proof of participation in at least two training activities. Nonetheless, the Academic commission may issue a positive evaluation for students with only one activity if this is duly justified.

The studies are duly completed with the presentation of the PhD thesis and the student´s public dissertation.

After completion of the Research Plan and Training activities, students may proceed to the public defense of their PhD thesis once the thesis has received initial approval from the PhD thesis supervisor(s) and the Academic Committee of the PhD programme as well as final approval from the Steering Committee of the Doctoral School. In order to receive this approval, the thesis must have achieved a relevant contribution signed by the PhD student as first author. The adequacy of the contribution will be determined according to the criteria established by the Comisión Nacional Evaluadora de la Actividad Investigadora (CNEAI) for the main areas of research and knowledge.

At the time of finishing your thesis you may need to check the rules that apply for writing the thesis in a foreign language and for the deposit and thesis defense.

Broadening your experience in other universities now becomes essential in a scenario where information, enterprise and society are globalized. Short-term visits (of at least 3 months) to a foreing institution allow doctoral students to achieve the International mention in their diploma. In addition, the option of JointSupervision allows you to achieve a PhD degree issued simultaneously by University of Jaen and by a foreign university. Under this modality of study, you will be assigned a thesis supervisor in each of the participating universities under the conditions laid down in the corresponding cotutele agreement.

PhD students may also spend part or most of their training period in a company. The mention of Industrial Doctorate can be obtained provided that the topic of the thesis is embedded in the research strategy of a company to which the doctoral student is bound by a contractual agreement.

There are different types of mobiity grants for doctoral students, including FPI (MINECO), FPU (MECD), individual PAIDI grants or Plan de Apoyo a la Investigación, Desarrollo Tecnológico e Innovación from Jaen University. Sudents may also apply for grants from Campus de Excelencia Internacional Agroalimentario (CeiA3), Erasmus mobility grants, and grants offered by the Doctoral School of Jaen University.

For that reason, it offers a range of options for you to get enrolled in extracurricular internships, including the University programmes for entrepreneurial activities and Icaro programme. The calls from University of Jaen´s Plan de Apoyo a la Transferencia del Conocimiento, el Emprendimiento y la Empleabilidad may offer you multiple options to facilitate your incorporation to the world of work.

En la actualidad, los matemáticos son uno de los tres titulados superiores más demandados en el mercado de trabajo, con más del 60% de los egresados trabajando en el mundo de la empresa, y el resto en la investigación o la docencia, fundamentalmente en los ámbitos de las finanzas cuantitativas (bancos, bancos de inversiones y compañías de seguros), informática y telecomunicaciones, consultoras (trabajos estadísticos, de modelización e informáticos) e industria (control de calidad, control de producción, prospección de mercados, etc.). Estos datos se puede consultar, por ejemplo, en el estudio de inserción laboral de los Licenciados en Matemáticas elaborados para el Libro Blanco de la Titulación de Matemáticas del Programa de Convergencia Europea de la ANECA. Otro estudio reciente sobre los egresados en Matemáticas es el informe Salidas Profesionales de los Estudios de Matemáticas:

Análisis de la Inserción Laboral y Ofertas de Empleo, elaborado por la Real Sociedad Matemática Española (RSME) por encargo de la Agencia Nacional de Evaluación de la Calidad y Acreditación (ANECA). Este informe (que se puede consultar en la web de la RSME se basa en el análisis de una encuesta a nivel nacional en la que participaron más de 500 profesionales de las Matemáticas y la Estadística, y en la clasificación de unas 1.500 ofertas de empleo para matemáticos aparecidas en diversos medios (Internet, prensa, etc.) en los primeros cinco meses del año 2007. Entre sus conclusiones se recogen textualmente las siguientes:

a) El estudio indica que la titulación de Matemáticas ofrece unas expectativas laborables muy atractivas y diversas. Además de la enseñanza (38%), ofrece posibilidades en el sector bancario (16%), en la Administración Pública (15%), en el sector industrial (8%), empresas del sector informático (7%) y empresas de consultoría (7%).

b) El nivel de empleo es del 91,6%, es decir, hay sólo un 8,4% de desempleo, siendo ligeramente superior el desempleo entre las mujeres (9,0% frente al 7,9%). Textualmente se afirma: “Los datos extraídos de la encuesta permiten concluir que la incorporación de los matemáticos al mercado laboral es un proceso muy rápido, pues al cabo de 2 años el índice de desempleo es sólo del 5,0%, y la ocupación es casi plena (98,2%) después de 5 años”.

c) En cuanto a la precariedad/estabilidad del empleo, merecen destacarse dos afirmaciones. La primera es que, con carácter general, “el 72,8% tiene un contrato estable, siendo el porcentaje ligeramente superior entre los hombres”. La segunda se centra en el tiempo necesario para alcanzar un empleo estable: “El 52,0% obtiene un empleo estable en menos de 6 meses. Al cabo de 2 años, ese porcentaje es del 80,9%. En el caso de las mujeres, el tiempo transcurrido hasta alcanzar la estabilidad laboral es ligeramente superior”.
