Learning outcomes
PhD researchers will have a qualified and specific training in all the research field of mathematics, and will be able to perform an autonomous research activity in pure or applied math. Indeed they will receive a deep training in a large spectrum of emergent scientific problems, and a personalized training in a specific mathematical field. Hence, he/she will be able to develop mathematical theories in new directions or to develop models which require a deep mathematical knowledge problems. The PhD will be able to study and solve new problems posed by different fields with a rigorous mathematical approach. For this reason he will have carrier opportunities either in academic endeavour where pure research can be developed, or in industrial, financial or biomedical context where applied math is developed, or he/she could cover responsibility positions in private or public research centers. Finally he/she will be able to work in any context where project and management skills are required.
Activities to be carried out by Doctoral candidates
The PhD fellows:
- in the first year will follow courses in their research field;
- from the first year they will focus on training through research;
- will follow seminars and participate to specialistic conferences;
- will perform laboratory activity with mathematical software;
- will follow courses to acquire specific skills, as for example ability of using library resources, communication skills, grant writing skills.
Research training activities compliant with the Doctoral programme's learning outcomes
Activities for facilitate entering in academic institutions:
- specialistic seminars on the topics of pure and app lied mathematics;
- participation to national and international conferences and workshops, giving short communications.
Activities for carrier development in private sector, industrial or financial:
- secondments in industrial or financial research centres;
- participations to talks delivered by industrial managers.
Internationalization features
The PhD course is characterized by the following elements. We are partners of the EU project already funded :
- Project ABC- EU-XVA already funded and with local PI Prof. A. Pascucci: it provides PhD grants;
- Project 777822 — GHAIA — H2020-MSCA-RISE-2017, with the best US universities. If favours the mobility of students and the presence of many foreign professors, who will give courses and seminars.
- We will sign at least 2 cotutoring agreements with foreign Universities.
- The preliminary oral examination can to be carried out in English.
- The courses can be delivered in English if foreign students are present.
Expected research results and products
The main expected result is the PhD thesis. Moreover the fellow could submit poster or communications to conferences or scientifica events.
