  • PhD Vacancy at University of Brescia, Italy

    There will be a public competition, and the winner will receive the PhD. The participation will have to be differentiated between Italians and foreigners:

    • Italians (all those who graduated in Italy) should participate to the "ordinary" PhD, and the first one who will win without payment by the University will be enrolled by Don Gnocchi Foundation (that will pay around 21.000 Euros per year).

    • Foreigners (all those who graduated abroad) should participate to the section for foreigners: the probability to win here is usually much higher. In case of victory, they will be paid by the University of Brescia and work at Don Gnocchi.

    The place of work will be in Rovato - Piazza Paolo VI 1, at the Centre for Evidence Based Medicine in Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine of the Don Gnocchi Foundation and University of Brescia. This structure is going to be established in the next weeks in agreement between Don Gnocchi Foundation and University of Brescia: on September 20th will be signed an agreement with Cochrane for the PRM Field.

    You should present for "Neurosciences".

    Foreigners will be paid by the University around 15,000 Euro per year, will have University facilities at very low price for lodging, and will have 1,400 Euro at the 2nd and 3rd year for your research expenses.

    Please remember that a Bachelor degree is not enough: You must have a Master or a 5-6 year full degree - this will be fully reported in the official call.
