International PhD Course in Molecular Medicine

About 100 doctoral students are currently enrolled in our PhD Program in Molecular Medicine.

The number of available positions is reported in the annual call (54 positions have been offered for A.Y. 2018/19). Full-time financial support is provided for every student we admit. The maintenance of the status of PhD Student and the renewal of the doctoral scholarship depend on the positive result of an annual examination of the scientific progress..

The scholarship covers:

– the salary

– tuition fees

In the last call, 47 students are offered a UniSR scholarship (annual gross wage, before-tax, of € 18,000); the remaining 7 positions are without fellowship but the student will be funded by the hosting laboratory.

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).
