Link to Opportunity

The Gran Sasso Science Institute (GSSI) is an international PhD school and a center for research and higher education in the areas of Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science and Social Sciences.

As a project supported by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the GSSI has been instituted as a new Italian graduate school of advanced studies in 2016, after a three-years successful experimental period.

Located in central Italy, the school welcomes professors, researchers and students selected internationally following the best graduate schools standards worldwide. The PhD program is organized in the scientific areas of Astroparticle Physics, Mathematics, Computer science, Urban Studies and Regional Sciences. Every year we offer Postdoctoral grants and research opportunities thus facilitating the attraction of high-level resources in the fields of natural and social sciences.

Their main goal is to strengthen the scientific excellence in L’Aquila area, where many skills and highly specialized structures, such as the Gran Sasso National Laboratories of the National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) and the University of L’Aquila, are already present. Further, our Institute intends to promote collaborations with many national and international institutions and to interact with public and private realities in order to stimulate innovation and knowledge based communities.
