The institute of physics is a part of the Faculty of natural sciences of the Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice in Slovakia. Its director is currently Michal Jaščur. Primary activities of the institute are:education of students trying to obtain a Master degree in physics or in any other subject in combination with physics.
scientific research within areas of magnetism, physics of low temperatures, nuclear physics, biophysics, theoretical physics, astrophysics and theory of physics education.
Institute of physics of the University of Pavol Jozef Šafárik Wikipedia
The Department of Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics provides education within all basic disciplines of theoretical physics. Through series of mandatory science courses, it educates students for specialization either in physics of condensed matter, nuclear physics, computer physics or astrophysics.
The research at the department employs:theoretical study of magnetic properties of certain materials and phase transitions in magnetic systems
development of mathematical tools in geophysics
theory of elementary particles
physical properties of interacting binaries (binary stars)

The research in a field of nuclear and sub-nuclear physics focuses on high-energy collisions of heavy ions, correlation and spin effects in low-nucleon systems in interactions with protons with light nuclei at medium energies. Special attention is given to a participation of employees on the experiment ALICE of the new LHC collider in the CERN complex and to an experiment STAR on accelerators of BROOKHAVEN.
The department carries out the research with the following institutions:European Organization for Nuclear Research - CERN, Geneva, Switzerland
Joint institute of nuclear research - JINR, Dubna, Russia
Institute of nuclear physics - FZ Jülich, Germany
Brookhaven National Laboratory - BNL, Brookhaven, USA
Deutsches Elektronen Synchrotron - DESY, Hamburg, Germany
