General Information and application forms are available at the URL:

See on-line help for instructions (you will need to fill the form with your personal data and to specify the PhD program
you are applying for (Computer Science and Systems Engineering) and the curriculum).

You will need to upload a number of documents (in pdf format):

  • A valid photo ID (both sides and all pages).
  • A CV that clearly indicates your prior research experience (this includes e.g. project work, publications, teaching experience, title and short summary of your Master’s thesis).
  • A research project consistent with the research theme that you selected (5/6 pages). Guidelines to write a research project proposal are available here.
  • The transcript of exams with grades.

Each canditate should provide 1 to 3 reference letters to support the application.
You must not upload reference letters. They must be sent directly by the writer to the PhD coordinator (see below).

Important notice for non local candidates
For non-local candidates (i.e., not known to faculty members at DIBRIS) it is particularly important to secure reference letters from well-established researchers that can provide a reliable assessment of the candidate's abilities.

Reference Letters

The reference letters must be sent by the writer of the letter to the following email addresses, before the submission deadline 

  • Computer Science:     phd.compsci at dibris.unige.it (replace at with @)
  • Systems Engineering: phd.syseng at dibris.unige.it (replace at with @)

A template may be found in the Template for reference letters.

Selection process 

A Selection Committee (COMMISSIONE) evaluates background knowledge and research potential of the candidates, based on the information submitted with their application (TITOLI) and based on a technical/motivational INTERVIEW. At the end the Committee produces a ranked list (GRADUATORIA) of candidates sufficiently qualified and trained to have a reasonable expectation of successfully completing the graduate program.

 The ranking is primarily based on a combination of the following criteria:

  • Quality of previous undergraduate/graduate workStrength of reference letter
  • Statements in the applicant's research proposal
  • Other evidence of graduate potential
  • Availability of an advisor in the research area selected by the applicant
  • Availability of positions in the PhD program
