Opportunities Overview

Discover ICTP's education and training programmes in quantitative life sciences

Next

Scientists at all stages of their careers can advance their knowledge in physics and mathematics through ICTP's education and training programmes.  

These include pre-PhD programmes that help prepare students for the rigours of doctorate study. The Centre offers a number of masters and PhD degree programmes jointly with local and Italian universities. 

Scientists who want to maintain their connection to ICTP can participate in the Centre’s Associates Scheme, which supports sabbatical visits over a period of several years. 

For more details, see below.
