UNIVERSITY PROFILE

 

The GSSI – Gran Sasso Science Institute (www.gssi.it) is an international PhD school and a center for research and higher education in the areas of Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science and Social Sciences. It was founded in 2012 in L’Aquila (Italy) as a Center for Advanced Studies of the INFN – National Institute for Nuclear Physics and then established in March 2016 as a School of Advanced Studies providing post-graduate education. Through a day-to-day collaboration and interaction, researchers and students have the opportunity to build a sound knowledge of the research methods and to experiment contamination of interests, innovative approaches and multicultural exchanges in all the GSSI activities. In addressing the complexity of today’s world, we are committed to removing all barriers between the GSSI areas of study and research, where interdisciplinarity and cross-fertilization underlie everything we do. Among our goals are the dissemination of scientific results towards society and the promotion of cultural events for generic public, citizens and schools.

 

 

 

MORE DETAILS ON THE 4 PhD PROGRAMMES

 

The GSSI – Gran Sasso Science Institute, based in L’Aquila (Italy), offers 31 PhD scholarships in the following fields:

 

• Astroparticle Physics (8 scholarships)

- 7 scholarships;

- 1 scholarship funded by Thales Alenia Space for the following research project: “Development of cryogenic sensors of quantum coherence

for use in Quantum Technologies”. The selected candidate will work on the funded research project under the supervision of two advisors: Dr. Laura Cardani, INFN, external; Prof. Fernando Ferroni, GSSI, internal.

 

It is possible to apply both for Thales Alenia Space Project and for GSSI scholarships, by submitting two different applications.

 

The research and PhD in physics at the GSSI is focused on astroparticle physics. Astroparticle physics is an interdisciplinary and young research field, grown at the intersection of particle physics, nuclear physics, astrophysics and cosmology. It addresses some of the most pressing and

fundamental questions in science today: the origin and the evolution of our universe, the nature of dark matter and dark energy, the study of neutrinos and of the ultimate constituents of matter, the search for gravitational waves, the investigation and explanation of the cosmic rays.

 

Mathematics in Natural, Social and Life Sciences (8 scholarships)

-      7 scholarships;

 

Within the PhD course in Mathematics in Natural, Social and Life Sciences a priority has been established on mathematical modeling, both towards the traditional areas of application, such as Physics or Engineering, and towards emerging issues in Biology and Social Sciences. An emphasis will be given also to: partial differential equations and their applications, in particular mathematical models in fluid dynamics and in the study of nonlinear waves; statistical mechanics, hydrodynamic limits and derivation of effective equations in classical and quantum mechanics, phase transitions, disordered systems; methods of statistical physics in data science; numerical linear algebra and its applications, numerical methods for differential equations, high-performance computational techniques; network analysis problems; continuum mechanics,

fluid dynamics models for cardiovascular circulation, computational fluid dynamics; mathematical models in biology and social sciences.

 

• Computer Science (7 scholarships)

- 7 scholarships;

- 1 scholarship funded by Thales Alenia Space for the following research project: “Computational aspects of quantum non-locality”. The selected candidate will work on the funded research project under the supervision of two advisors: Prof. Fabio Sciarrino, University of Rome “La Sapienza”, external; Prof. Michele Flammini, GSSI, internal.

The PhD Programme in Computer Science of the GSSI aims to provide students with the main results, theories, techniques and methodologies regarding algorithms, models, languages , software and services to cope successfully with the challenges of the present and future Information and Communication Technolog

 

• Regional Science and Economic Geography (8 scholarships)
- 7 scholarships;

- 1 scholarship funded through the NWO VENI project “Productivity and resilience: Synergies and trade-offs”, for the following profile:

“ Increasing long-term productivity while simultaneously promoting more sustainable and resilient development pathways is a grand challenge for advanced economies nowadays. Identifying the overlapping area between productivity and resilience is key to defy the dichotomy between the two, which instead leads to believe that interventions and measures for productivity harms resilience and that resilience-oriented programs are unproductive .” The selected candidate’s activity will concern the review of the existing literature, data collection, quantitative analysis and implications of economic policy.

 

The aim of the PhD in Regional Science and Economic Geography is to address issues related to local and regional development. The methodological perspective of research and teaching is multidisciplinary, combining regional and urban economics, economic and human geography, spatial planning and sociology.

It is possible to apply both for the NWO VENI Project and for GSSI scholarships, by submitting two different applications.
