Students wishing to join the String Theory Group should apply to the Graduate School in Physics of the Padova University.
The selection usually takes place in July and courses start in the following Fall. Foreign students can also apply to the call for the CARIPARO fellowships. Thanks to CARIPARO foundation, the University of Padova offers 15 PhD grants per year for foreign students to attend Doctoral Courses, covering full board and lodging. Moreover the University of Padova and the China Scholarship Council have created a scholarship programme to enable talented Chinese students to undertake a PhD programme in Padova.
Links to the past selection procedure with details of how to apply to such calls can be found at http://www.unipd.it/en/node/1053.
We anyway advise those students who wish to work with a particular faculty member, or who have a stronger interest in one of the topics covered by our group, to contact us.
