PhD positions at IMT Lucca, Italy

I have been asked to distribute the appended call for applications for PhD positions at IMT Lucca, which, as readers of this (lately rather inactive) blog might recall, is one of the Italian institutions close to my heart. If you have some strong student looking for a PhD position or you would like to embark in PhD studies yourself in one of the research areas covered at IMT Lucca, do consider this excellent opportunity. Lucca is a lovely town in Tuscany and has a very high quality of life. This (by now somewhat dated) video gives a good introduction to IMT Lucca.
