Poobjavljamo spodnje obvestilo (v angleškem jeziku) o štiriletnem doktorskem študiju na Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa (Italija). Prijave so možne do 7. marca!:

The Scuola Normale Superiore (SNS) in Pisa, Italy invites applications for a four-year doctoral programs in Computational Astrophysics and Cosmology (COMPAC), starting November 1st, 2024. COMPAC is a recently-established PhD program at SNS, with the goal of training the next generation of world-leading researchers in today's data-rich cosmological landscape. The program offers a broad range of courses and research training, focused on cosmological simulations, data-driven modeling, machine learning and Bayesian inference. PhD students receive a generous stipend, travel funds, and various additional benefits such as free meals and social/cultural events.

The Cosmology group at the SNS offers a dynamic, international research environment for PhD students. It includes several faculty, associate scientists, a dozen postdoctoral researchers, a dozen PhD students, and has won numerous prestigious research awards (see for more information on the members and some lines of research).

Applicants can at the same time apply to multiple PhD calls at SNS. Interested candidates are encouraged to apply to both the COMPAC and the general Physics calls. Three PhD positions are available in the current COMPAC call and six in Physics (spread over various areas). Applications are to be submitted online at:

The deadline for applications is March 7th, 2024. Candidates must have completed their Masters degree by October 31st, 2024. They should include a brief statement of research interests during the PhD, and can request for two letters of recommendation to be submitted on their behalf.

Please do not hesitate to contact any faculty member of the Cosmology group for more information about the program and potential research lines.
