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.
