10 scholarships for PhD positions

Published 2022-06-10

We offer 10 scholarships  for PhD positions available at the Università degli studi di Genova, Italy  and IIT Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Genova, Italy 
A stepping-stone in your research career.

IIT gives graduate students the opportunity to earn a doctoral degree by making good use of its state-of-the-art laboratories and facilities. All our supervisors have an international standing, interdisciplinarity is the rule and the environment is international; in short, if you want a challenging, but rewarding start for a career in research, we are here for you. 

IIT is not a degree-awarding body though.  

PhD students are registered at Università degli studi di Genova with which IIT has agreement  and which  awards the degree, and IIT provides the research environment and finances the bursaries that the University will eventually award to the students, after a public selection process.
