Academic Degrees Awarding

About regulations for awarding academic degrees in the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research

According to federal laws of the JINR’s country of residence (the Russian Federation) of 23 August 1996 No. 127-ФЗ “About science and the state scientific and technical policy”, of 23 March 2016 No. 148-ФЗ “About amending the 4 article of the Federal Law “About science and the state scientific and technical policy”, as well as the Order of the Government of the Russian Federation of 23 August 2017 No. 1792-р “About confirmation of the list of scientific organization and higher educational organizations with the rights provided by paragraphs 2-4 of the 3 clause in the 4 article of the Federal Law of 23 August 1996 No. 127-ФЗ”, JINR exercises the right to award academic degrees independently.

From 1 September 2019, instead of dissertation councils functioning in the system of Higher Attestation Commission (VAK) of the Russian Federation, dissertation councils operating on the grounds of the right of independent awarding of academic degrees will be opened.

I. Dissertation Councils operating on a permanent basis

1. Dissertation Council on Particle Physics (under the VBLHEP and the DLNP)

The Dissertation council carries out defence in the following scientific specialties:

  • 01.04.01 – equipment and methods of experimental physics in physical and mathematical sciences and engineering sciences;
  • 01.04.16 – nuclear physics and elementary particle physics in physical and mathematical sciences;
  • 01.04.20 – physics of charged particle beams and accelerator physics in physical and mathematical sciences and engineering sciences;
  • 01.04.23 – high energy physics in physical and mathematical sciences and engineering sciences.

2. Dissertation Council on Nuclear Physics (under the FLNR)

The Dissertation Council carries out defence in the following scientific specialties:

  • 01.04.01 – equipment and methods of experimental physics in physical and mathematical sciences and engineering sciences;
  • 01.04.16 – nuclear physics and elementary particle physics in physical and mathematical sciences;
  • 01.04.20 – physics of charged particle beams and accelerator physics in physical and mathematical sciences and engineering sciences;

3. Dissertation Council on Condensed Matter Physics (under the FLNP)

The Dissertation Council carries out defence in the following scientific specialties:

  • 01.04.01 – приборы и методы экспериментальной физики по физико-математическим наукам;
  • 01.04.07 – физика конденсированного состояния по физико-математическим наукам.

4. Dissertation Council on Information Technologies and Computation Physics (under the LIT)

The Dissertation Council carries out defence in the following scientific specialties:

  • 01.01.07 – computational mathematics in physical and mathematical sciences;
  • 05.13.11 – mathematical and computational software for computing machines, systems, and computer networks in physical and mathematical sciences and engineering sciences;
  • 05.13.18 – mathematical modelling, numerical methods, and software systems in physical and mathematical sciences.

II. Non-permanent dissertation council created for defence of separate dissertations

1. Dissertation Council on Theoretical Physics (under the BLTP)

The Dissertation Council carries out defence in the following scientific specialties:

  • 01.04.02 – theoretical physics in physical and mathematical sciences;
  • 01.04.16 – nuclear physics and elementary particle physics in physical and mathematical sciences.
