research budget for thesecond and third year. The application deadline is
June 13, 2018.For details, see the program webpage
<> The application procedure can be found at <>The PhD research
areas are Computational Mathematics,Computational Physics, Scientific
Computing, Statistics, Decision Sciences, Optimization, Machine Learning,
with an interdisciplinary view of Applied Mathematics, Physics and decision
processes under uncertainty.Established in 1361, the University of Pavia is
one of the oldest academic institutions in the world, combining a
prestigious history with cutting-edge scientific innovation. In January
2018, the Departments of Mathematics and Physics were awarded the National
Departments of Excellence Grant. Students benefit from working in
internationally recognized research teams and from the intense cultural
life of Pavia's city-campus; see
<>The Università della Svizzera
Italiana (USI) is a young and lively university, member of the Swiss
University System, together with ETH and EPFL. This new joint PhD program
leverages on USI's Institute of Computational Sciences (ICS) and on USI's
strengths in scientific computing, data science, informatics and
biomedicine; see <>We look
forward to welcoming you to both Pavia and Lugano.*
