The University of Milano-Bicocca is one of the top universities in Italy and it is located in the modern and international city of Milan. Below you can find more information on how to study with us (Master and PhD courses in English) and on job opportunities to work within our group.
We offer an international Master Course in Astrophysics and Space Physics. The master lasts for two years and all lectures are held in English. The last 8 months are dedicated to working on an original research project leading to a master thesis to be defended in front of a committee. Information on how to get admitted can be found here.
Every summer a number of PhD fellowships is offered for enrolling in the PhD in Physics and Astronomy (starting on November 1st of each year). The call is published in May on the Doctoral School web page. The selection is based on the candidate CV and on an interview. The interviews are typically held in July and the results of the selection are published at the beginning of September. More information on how to apply can be found here.
We currently do not have openings for postdocs or faculty positions in our group, but there are national and European calls that can provide you with a fellowship to work with us:
- Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship (for post-doc positions)
- Rita Levi di Montalcini (for tenure-track positions)
We also remark that holders of ERC grants may also get a position as associate (for starting grants) or full professor (for consolidator and advanced grants) in our group. The overheads in the budget are typically almost completely returned to the PI as the university of Milano-Bicocca retains only a small fraction of them. The typical cost for hiring a 2-year postdoc is approximately 80 k EUR and 50 k EUR for a 3-year PhD student.
