We invite to nominate candidates for the Fubini Prize 2018. The prize supports a young mathematician whose researches are based in Italy (under 40 at the end of the year, and resident in Italy or temporarily resident abroad) who has obtained results in the fields of pure or applied mathematics and is recognized for his studies by the international scientific community.  The age of 40 is increased by one year for each child if  the mathematician is a woman.

The prize is awarded every second year: please look at the Fubini Prize webpage:

The theme chosen for the 2018 edition concerns new analytical methods for the study of differential equations of relevance in Mathematics and in Physics, Biology  and other Sciences.

Nominations should be signed by at least two endorsing mathematicians (including the nominator) and accompanied by a short paragraph supplying the reasons for the nomination. Please use the form

What we offer:

Associate Professor is a tenured position. Applicants should have an established track-record of publications in top international journals and evidence of leadership and recognition in the international academic community, including grant applications and project management. Standards of excellence in teaching are also expected. The initial gross salary of an Associate Professor is around 50k Euros per year. The net amount after taxes depends on the total personal income, the composition of the family and other parameters. To apply for an associate professorship in Italy, the candidates must hold the “Abilitazione Scientifica Nazionale” (Italian National Habilitation) as Associate Professor, or must have been declared eligible by the Italian Ministery of University and Research (MIUR), or must be currently employed in an equivalent position in Italy or in a foreign Department.

Senior (Tenure-Track) Assistant Professor (RTD-B) is for three years. Subject to evaluation, the position will be converted in a tenured Associate Professorship. Applicants for this position must have at least three years of experience after PhD completion, and an already established research record. The initial gross salary is around 38k Euros per year

A four-year tax exemption on 90% of the salary is available according to the Italian tax law for those candidates who have been residing outside Italy for 2 years or more. All positions will start not earlier than 2019. Moreover, the MIUR Excellence Grant will provide special funds to attract PhD students and PostDocs to join the Department and host large scientific events as well as other activities such as PhD courses, seminars and workshops.


Applicants should express their interest by sending an email to, including a Curriculum Vitae and a list of publications. The subject of the email should be Associate-surname or RTDB-surname. Selected candidates could be invited for a seminar. There are no restrictions regarding the nationality of the applicants.

Please note that this is a call for interest, not a job vacancy announcement; i.e., this call is only a preliminary stage aimed to collect expressions of interest, and it is not a formal application for positions. On the basis of the collected EoIs, the Department will decide whether or not to open a position in specific subdisciplines. Academic positions in Italy can only be awarded through a public competition or direct appointment. The Department will contact the applicants to inform them about the opening of the formal positions and the required documentation.
