IIT and the University of Genoa have published a call for application to the next PhD course starting January 2014.
The final, legally validated results will be published on December 2, 2013
The following link contain provisional results:
- Dottorato in Scienze e Tecnologie della Chimica e dei Materiali (PhD in Sciences and Technology of Chemistry and Materials)
This page is meant to help candidates navigate the large number of research themes as well as the online application forms. Prospective students are invited to read the call text carefully, read the available research themes and contact their respective proponents for more information. The deadline for applications is September 20th, 2013 noon (Italian time/CET).
A friendlier description of the application process is described in our unofficial tip & tricks page.
The official call text is available from the University's website at the following links:
The application can only be submitted electronically through the University of Genoa's website. Registration is required.
Forms and web pages are partially in Italian (sorry about that), there's usually a link to access the English version of the application forms.
The PhD offer is divided in "courses". IIT covers four different courses, namely i) Bioengineering & Robotics, ii) Neuroscience, iii) Science & Technologies of Material Chemistry and iv) Science & Technologies for Electronics and Telecommunication. Courses are internally divided in one or more "curricula" as shown below. The application forms require to:
The themes are listed below for each course and curriculum. Each student must apply to at least one theme. Multiple applications are possible (albeit not encouraged) by repeating the file upload and submission procedure. Please note also that themes may repeat across curricula and joint tutorship across courses and between IIT and the University of Genoa is not rare.
Note: prospective students are invited also to verify carefully the themes by contacting the relative tutor/tutors in advance (tutors and contact emails are listed for each theme in the following).
BIOENGINEERING AND ROBOTICS
SCIENZE E TECNOLOGIE DELLA CHIMICA DEI MATERIALI (SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGIES OF MATERIAL CHEMISTRY)
SCIENZE E TECNOLOGIE PER L'INGEGNERIA ELETTRONICA E DELLE TELECOMUNICAZIONI (SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGIES FOR ELECTRONICS & TELECOMMUNICATION)
