PhD of Excellence at Rome Tor Vergata University 2018-2019

The Department of Mathematics of the University of Rome Tor Vergata has been ranked first in Italy among the Departments of Mathematics in the most recent Research Assessment Exercises. The Department of Mathematics has hence benefited of an extra-funding for the period 2018-2022. These funds will be largely exploited for additional activities specifically addressed to PhD students, such as seminars, advanced courses, workshops, visiting professors; there is also specific extra-funding for studentsâ€™ travels and scholarships.

Within this five-year Program of Excellence, five PhD positions have been funded for the academic year 2018-2019 with yearly gross salary of 24.500 Euros approximately plus travel allowance. Information for applications can be found on the PhD School web page.

The PhD program covers all areas of research in Pure and Applied Mathematics, including for instance Algebraic and Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory, Complex Analysis, Dynamical Systems, Calculus of Variations and PDE, Operator Algebras and Quantum Field Theory, Nonlinear Analysis, Celestial Mechanics, Statistical Physics, Numerical Analysis, Probability and Mathematical Statistics. A more detailed presentation of the PhD school, including the full list of members of the PhD Board, can be found on the PhD School web page.

Our students can also benefit from strong interactions with the very lively mathematical community in Rome; there is indeed a mutual cooperation agreement with the Mathematics PhD programs run by Sapienza and Rome III University.
