Position Description:    

*** the listing date or deadline for this position has passed and new applications are no longer accepted. ***

Mathematics in Natural, Social and Life Sciences: - 8 scholarships; - 1 scholarship funded by Leonardo S.p.A. for the following research project: “Development of methods to evaluate the capabilities of quantum hardware of the Quantum Annealer type in solving combinatorial optimization problems in various areas of interest for Leonardo; examples of possible areas of investigation are linear algebra, logistics, computer vision”.

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. Within the PhD Programme in Mathematics in Natural, Social and Life Sciences, it is possible to apply both for the Project funded by Leonardo S.p.A and for GSSI scholarships, by submitting two different applications. ---------------------------------------------- Application Applicants must fill out the online application form (, where it is possible to find all the necessary information for the submission, and attach the required documents by June 01, 2022, 3 pm (Italian time zone). No other application method will be accepted.
