PhD Positions at GSSI L'Aquila, Italy - CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

I have been asked to distribute this call for applications for PhD positions in  a newly founded international PhD School in Italy, the Gran Sasso Science Institute. I hope that you will encourage some of your best students to apply.

------ PhD Positions at GSSI L'Aquila, Italy - CALL FOR APPLICATIONS -------

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to ask for your help in spreading around the call for application for PhD candidates in Computer Science at the Gran Sasso Science Institute (GSSI)


We are particularly interested in attracting foreign students. So it would be great if you can deliver this announcement through your emailing lists in your countries.

The deadline for applying to the program is 15th july.

Students will be offered  free housing and meals plus the standard three years PhD grant.  The official language is English.

GSSI is a new initiative that is starting in L'Aquila as a consequence of the redevelopment plan after the earthquake. The school  is  managed by INFN (http://www.infn.it/index.php?lang=en) and will start a PhD program in Computer science that is centered around new generation computing, including distributed, ubiquitous and autonomous systems, with emphasis on three main disciplinary pillars: algorithms, software engineering and specification and analysis.

There will be other three Phd programs offered by GSSI, one concerning urban studies, one in Physics mainly centered around astro-particles phisics because of the proximity with the famous Lab
(http://www.lngs.infn.it/), and another in Mathematics centered around mathematical modeling.

The school is supported by other three Italian already established graduate schools, IMT in Lucca for computer science (www.imtlucca.it<http://www.imtlucca.it/> ), SISSA in Trieste for mathematics and physics
(http://www.sissa.it/), and Scuola Superiore S. Anna in Pisa for urban studies (www.sssup.it <http://www.sssup.it/> ).

Thank you in advance for your attention and your support.
