The PhD Programme

The Department of Mathematics at the University of Genova offers two graduate programmes leading to the Ph.D. degree.

Research areas. The main active research areas at our Department of Mathematics are:

  • harmonic and functional analysis,
  • mathematical logic and category theory,
  • commutative algebra and computer algebra,
  • complex projective geometry,
  • analytic number theory,
  • arithmetic geometry and algebraic number theory,
  • geometrical methods in physical theories,
  • mathematical aspects of quantum mechanics and algebraic quantum field theory,
  • probability and mathematical statistics,
  • numerical analysis and computational methods with applications in medical imaging, neurosciences and astrophysics.

Application. Students have to apply by filling in the application form available at the “Bando di Ammissione al XXXV ciclo del Dottorato di ricerca” web page of the University of Genova. The deadline for the application is the 12th of June 2019. Further information about the application can be found at that link.

Number of positions. There are 7 positions available for the Graduate Programme in “Mathematics and Applications” and 1 in the Graduate Programme “Mathematical Methods for Data Analysis” on some specific research projects whose detailed description can be found in the official call. All these positions will start in November 2019.

Financial support. There are 5 grants available for students applying for the Programme “Mathematics and Applications” and 1 for the Programme “Mathematical Methods for Data Analysis”. The position available for the Programme “Mathematical Methods for Data Analysis”, is financed with the means of the ERC grant “Efficient algorithms for sustainable machine learning”.
