Detailed information regarding the next Entrance Exam call – cohort 2020-2021 (36th Cycle) – is available here starting from the 7th of May 2020. Please note that there will be a general procedure for Unipd and a specific sub-part of the call for the PhD in Neuroscience. We are glad to announce that about 15-16 fellowships will be available this year.

The call remained open from the 7th of May until the 16th of June 2020, 1 pm. Potentially interested and motivated candidates from all backgrounds are welcome to apply again next year.

During the submission process for the entrance exam, candidates will be requested to write a short research project (a form can be downloaded below). This project should be generally compatible with some Research Lines within the Padova Neuroscience Center. The application process will also involve other requirements (e.g., submission of the CV according to the form provided below, motivation letter and recommendation letters). Please read all the documents and instructions concerning the Entrance Exam call procedures very carefully, as failing to fulfill all the requirements may result in the exclusion from the competition.
