The PhD in Mathematical Sciences programme at University of Padova, Dipartimento di Matematica, offers an advanced course of studies with two curricula: Mathematics and Computational Mathematics. 


The fields covered in the two curricula are: Algebra, Mathematical Analysis, Matematical Physics, Geometry, Logic (Mathematics curriculum), Probability, Numerical Analysis, Optimization (Computational Mathematics curriculum).

Content and outcome

Each academic year 6-8 fellowships are offered to Italian and International applicants by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Reasearch (MIUR), the Cariparo Foundation and through European Research grants (e.g. European Community ITN SADCO Network, Algant Network).

Two extra fellowships are awarded each year by the China Scholarship Council to candidates from the People’s Republic of China who are also welcome to apply to the regular fellowships.

Students develop their studies according to their interests and under the direct supervision of one or more Faculty members. They are addressed to attend also International schools, meetings and conferences from the first year of studies, supported by additional funding.

Advanced courses are offered by the Department each year, taught by Faculty members or by well-known international specialists.

Students in the Mathematical Sciences programme at University of Padova become part of a research group of the Department where they pursue a research project. They are immediately exposed to advanced research problems of current international interest in the area of Mathematics and its Applications and can become part of the International research groups connected with the Department.

Students receive a broad training to be prepared for a research job in public or private institutions, both academic and non-academic
