Doctoral Program in Mathematics at University of Bari






Each year the University of Bari announces its Doctoral Program in Mathematics. Usually, the Call for Applications for this Doctoral Program is at the end of each year. Foreign students may also apply to this Program.

However for the foreign students there is also one reserved position.


This Doctoral Program is supported by Politecnico of Bari also, which, usually finances one Doctoral scholarship per year.


University of Bari welcomes graduate students who are willing to work within an stimulating intellectual community. Admission to the program in Mathematics is competitive and we can offer only a small number of positions. 

There is an admission exam to decide the students to be enrolled into the program.


Usually, eight (8) positions are available, of which, four (4) will be granted an annual scholarship, covering the entire length of the program. The grant for the years amounts to roughly  1100 Euros per month. 

During their Doctoral studies, the students may visit others Departments in Italy or outside Italy (for at most 18 months) to collaborate and, eventually, prepare their Doctoral theses. In such a period their scholarships will be increased with respect the usual amount.


The length of the program is three (3) years of full-time academic research. Candidates are also expected to complete a thesis or dissertation within this limit. 

The Doctoral Program in Mathematics is centred on an interdisciplinary perspective. The program covers seven main areas (or curriculum) of study:


1. Analysis

2. Algebra

3. Geometry

4. Mathematical Physics

5. Probability

6. Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computation

7. Mathematics for Finance.


and the students have to work in one of these areas.


Currently, several faculty members teach in this Doctoral Program. They include both Italian professors (see the Doctorate Faculty Staff) and several professors in different countries who collaborate with the Doctoral Program .

Applicants are required to have finished an undergraduate program of at least four years, for instance a bachelor and master degree, in the scientific area of Mathematics or Physics or Computer Science.


The Doctoral Program is an Italian language program but several courses may be taught in English.


Feel free to contact the Coordinator of the Doctoral Program, Prof.Luciano LOPEZ for any reason.
