Economic Sociology and Labour Studies (ESLS) Call for application 2018-2019
The PhD Program in Economic Sociology and Labour Studies provides 6 scholarships. One of them is a scholarship that the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research has dedicated to the memory of Giulio Regeni, the young researcher killed in Egypt under unclear circumstances.
In order to apply for a place in the doctoral research programmes, students must have a second cycle degree, an equivalent qualification, or an equivalent qualification by study level (Master’s Degree) from a foreign University. The suitability of the foreign academic qualifications in terms of content is appraised by the Examining Committee of each doctoral programme, in compliance with the regulations in force in Italy and in the country in which the academic qualification was issued, and the international treaties or agreements pertaining to the conferment of qualifications for the continuation of studies. Those without a second cycle degree may also apply, but admission to the doctoral research programme is subject to completing the second cycle degree by 31 October 2018, on pain of exclusion from the programme.
Admission to the doctoral programmes is through a public selection procedure involving the evaluation of qualifications and tests for the comparative assessment of candidates. An Examining Committee set up and appointed in compliance with current regulations will carry out the procedure. Selection is intended to ascertain the qualifications, capacity and aptitudes of candidates for scientific research and their personal motivations. It is based on assessment of the CV, a research project, which may be inspired by the work of the second cycle degree thesis, and an interview. The research project, which should be drafted using a standard model (Form 1 attached hereto), is only for selection purposes and does not limit the choice of doctoral thesis in the case of admission. The CV and research project are assessed before the interview. The outcome of the assessment is available on the web page indicated in the table for each programme. The CV is evaluated on the basis of the candidate’s entire university career, publications, professional experience and other qualifications, if any. A maximum score of 20 points can be assigned to the CV. In assigning the points the committees consider the conditions and the period over which the candidate has obtained his qualifications. A maximum of 10 points can be assigned to the research project.Candidates who obtain a score of at least 50% of the maximum points obtainable for the CV and the research project can be called for interview.
