The number of available positions is always indicated in the Call for the Application and on the web site in the section “Available Position”.
Full-time financial support is provided for every student we admit.
The yearly amount of the fellowship is € 18,000.00, subject to the INPS [Italian Social Security] separate management contribution, according to the regulations in force.
The maintenance of the status of PhD Student and the renewal of the doctoral fellowship depend on the positive result of an annual examination of the scientific progress.
The PhD students who win positions without fellowship are funded by the host laboratory with an amount not less than € 15,343.28 gross per year. The contract methods will be defined directly with the DoS before enrollment.
Annual research expenses (bench costs) are covered by the hosting laboratories.
During the second and third year, all students receive additional funds (1800 euros/year) to support participation to meetings and workshops. International collaborations are encouraged; if students move abroad to integrate the research activities of their projects, the scholarship is increased by half of the wage (for a period up to 8 months).
