New positions within the ABC PhD are filled using public calls for applications. The first is published every year in the period between April and May and admits successful candidates to the PhD programme in November of the same year. The call for applications includes positions for “thematic” scholarships whose themes have already been set by the proposing party.

These scholarships usually include co-funded ones, or those co-funded by external parties or ongoing research projects, or so-called “interdisciplinary scholarships” involving two PhD courses of the University.

Other additional calls for applications may be published, reserved for a limited number of scholarships related to specific themes.

Any additional calls are published in the following periods:

  1. July-August, with the PhD programme beginning in November of the same year
  2. February/March, with the PhD programme beginning in May of the following year.

Useful information on participation in the calls is provided at the following link.
