Hosted by the Mathematics Department, this programme aims at training high level researchers in advanced areas of applied mathematics. Since a successful approach to practical applications depends on a deep understanding of real-world phenomena as well as on the knowledge of mathematical tools for their description, Ph.D. candidates are expected to go thoroughly both into modelling and methodological aspects.
The preparation of a Ph.D. thesis is the qualifying activity of the Ph.D. programme. It allows students to develop leading-edge research competencies and to produce an original scientific contribution on a topic of significance for scientific debate and of interest for the business world.
For the three-year duration of their studies, PhD candidates may be supported by scholarships.
Scholarships vary from € 1000 to € 1500, the amount depends on the proposed research topic. Scholarship holders receive a tuition fees waiver; they will have to pay a small administrative fee for registration (€ 185,58 per year).
Those having benefited from a scholarship for a Ph.D. course, even partially, may not apply for a second time.
