Dear all,

I would like to remind you that only 12 days are left to the deadline for 10 paid PhD positions in “Urban Studies and Regional Science” at the Gran Sasso Science Institute (l'Aquila, Italy).


The methodological perspective in research and teaching is multidisciplinary. Approaches, methods and topics from diverse fields that constitute “urban studies”, such as human geography, spatial planning, urbanism, urban politics and policies, urban sociology and ethnography, are welcomed. In the same vein, we welcome applications from candidates more oriented towards regional science, such as economic geographers or economists, for instance.


The position is full-time, for three years, starting November 2017.






SCHOLARSHIP, FACILITIES AND BENEFITS: The yearly amount of the scholarship is of € 16.159,91 gross. All PhD students will have: tuition fees waived; free accommodation at the GSSI facilities or a financial substitute of 350,00 Euros gross/month; free luncheon vouchers.



Best regards,
