    We stress that admission requires two different procedures, one with the Central Administration of the University (step 1) and the other one with the Department (step 2). Both are mandatory. Each one is carried out on a different web site; in the following the site for Step 2 is referred to as Doctorate site.

    Specifically:

    • Step 1 (Deadline as required by the Central Administration of the University)

      Register with the University information system.

      We specifically stress that candidates holding foreign degrees have to provide additional documentation. Also, notice that the access of foreign candidates to positions without financial support is facilitated; see the Call for application.

    • Pay the application fee, then go to Step 2.

    • Step 2 (Deadline as required by the PhD program)

      Follow this link and complete the application online.

      You will be asked to provide names and email addresses of two professors willing to support your application, and not belonging to the Board of Professors of the Doctoral program. Your references will be contacted immediately upon your submission of the form, and asked to send their letters in electronic format by September 1st.

    Selection

    Short description

    There will be no written examination.
    On the basis of the documentation received (Evaluation of qualifications), the selection committee will prepare a ranked list, which will be published on this web site by September 19, 2017. This step will be completed without the presence of the candidates.
    Candidates in the ranked list are invited to the Oral exam, beginning on September 20. If candidates wish to have their interviews performed remotely (e.g., via skype) they should send by e-mail as soon as possible (time limit September 1) a motivated request to the Coordinator of the Ph.D. program. In the Oral exam, the candidate will be questioned on his/her scientific interests (past and future), and on background topics on related technical matters.
    The final ranking will follow from the results of two examinations: Evaluation of qualifications and Oral exam. Each one is worth 60 points; the candidate must score at least 31 points in each one in order to proceed in the competition.
    The languages of both exams are Italian or English.
    The results of the Examinations will be posted both on the Bulletin Board of the Department and on the site of the Doctorate.
    Notice that candidates ranked past the number of available positions may be eventually enrolled if other candidates renounce.

    Detailed description

    1. Evaluation of qualifications

    Required documentation: web form on the Doctorate site, including CV, list of publications, research project, addresses for recommendation letters, copy of ID document with photo. (Attention: the candidates must fill out this form for Step 2, and a different form, on a different site, for Step 1.)
    The committee will evaluate the CV and the research interests of the candidate, taking into account their relevance to the subject of the Doctorate. The evaluation will be based on the information in the online application form and in the recommendation letters.
    The total of 60 points is divided as follows:
    Curriculum Vitae et Studiorum: maximum 25 points; the Committee will evaluate the qualifications of the candidate and the time spent to achieve them.
    Publications: maximum 5 points; only products relevant to the subject of the Doctorate will be evaluated.
    Research project: maximum 25 points; novelty, clarity, feasibility and relevance to the scientific program of the Doctorate will be evaluated.
    Recommendation letters of experts not belonging to the Board of Professors: maximum 5 points; the content and the origin of judgements will be evaluated.
    The presence of the Candidates at the Evaluation of qualifications is not required.
    The results of the Evaluation of qualifications will be posted on September 19, 2017.

    2.Oral exam

    Candidates admitted to the Oral exam will be asked both on their motivations in enrolling in a Doctorate course, and on their specific technical competence.
    The total of 60 points is divided as follows:
    Coherence of scientific interests and motivations of the candidate with the scientific program of the Doctorate: 15 points.
    Specific technical competence of the candidate: 45 points.
    The results of the Oral exam will be posted on September 22, 2017.
