  • valid photo ID (both sides and all pages)
  • 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)
  • research project consistent with the research theme that you selected (10 pages maximum). 
    A template of the research project is available here it must adhere to the research themes detailed in Schede Informative Informatica e Ingegneria dei Sistemi
  • Transcript of exams with grades

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 @)

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
