  • The PhD School of the University of Turin offers: 6 PhD position in the context of the PhD course in "Modeling and Data Science", starting on Nov 1, 2021. More information is available here. The application deadline is: June 18th, 2021. We point out in particular the following two international research projects which are part of the PhD programme:
    1. "Numerical approximations of non-local parabolic equations based on stochastic and finite elements methods and applications". The project is a joint research initiative of the Stochastic group in the Dept. of Mathematics at the University of Turin (Italy) and the Numerical Analysis group in the "Laboratoire de Mathématique et de leurs applications" at the University of Pau (France). The advertised position will be based in both universities and will offer ample freedom to suitably organize the stay in the two cities. The possibility of double PhD Degree could be considered. The gross salary is 1458/month during the stay in Turin and could be increased of about 50% during the period in Pau. Embedded in a truly international environment, the student will get excellent research training in a structured programme focussing on challenges at the mathematical foundations of the stochastic and numerical approach to PDEs as well as on challenges arising from its various applications, e.g., in physics, biology, finance or data science. The combined expertise from the Turin and Pau groups will provide a significant breadth in depth and fertile ground for our student's ambitious research ideas. Successful candidates will have an MSc degree (or equivalent) in Mathematics (or a closely related field such as Applied Mathematics, Computational Science, Physics or Statistics), strong knowledge on stochastic processes or numerical methods, and feel eager to engage in the exchange of ideas with the teams in both Turin and Pau. For further information, please contact: Bruno Toaldo, bruno.toaldo@unito.it
    2. "Mathematical modeling of multivariate climate time series". The project is a joint research initiative of the Stochastic group in the Dept. of Mathematics at the University of Turin (Italy), Labflux group in the Interuniversity Department of Regional and Urban Studies and Planning, the University of Turin (Italy) and the Climatology group in the Department of Geography and Spatial Planning the University of Saragozza (Spain). The advertised position will be based in both universities and will offer ample freedom to suitably organize the stay in the two cities. The gross salary is 1458/month during the stay in Turin and could be increased to about 50% during the period in Saragozza. The student will benefit from excellent research training in a structured programme including mathematical and computational analysis, statistics on stochastic processes, Bayesian inference, machine learning and so on. He will experience collaborative and interdisciplinary work through projects as well as a dynamic and forward-looking community of scientists, sharing a strong desire to collaborate to find new ideas and a fertile ground from the different skills. Successful candidates will have an MSc degree (or equivalent) in Mathematics (or a closely related field such as Applied Mathematics, Computational Science, Physics or Statistics), strong knowledge on stochastic processes and statistical methods.
