SISSA, the International School for Advanced Studies, was founded in 1978 and is a scientific center of excellence within the national and international academic scene. Located in Italy, in the city of Trieste, it features 71 professors, about 115 post-docs, 281 PhD students and 102 technical administrative staff. Situated on the scenic Karst upland, the School is surrounded by a 25 acre park, and offers a stunning view of the Gulf of Trieste. The three main research areas of SISSA are Physics, Neuroscience and Mathematics.

The new SISSA Mathematical Fellowships is now available on offer for all new international students to study in Italy.

SISSA Mathematical Fellowships aim to support a prestigious postdoc research programme co-funded by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) to recruit and support the most talented young researchers with a promising CV who demonstrate to be autonomous in research.
