The Ph.D. degree in Mathematics is a joint program among three Universities: Modena/Reggio Emilia, Parma and Ferrara. It is open to students who are interested in a career in academic research and teaching, as well as in the private and public sectors. Candidates to the program should have a background in hard sciences, including engineering, physics, chemistry, biology, as well as mathematics.

Doctoral students have the chance to attend courses in their areas of specialization. They also perform an extensive period of research, in collaboration with their supervisor. Finally they write and defend a doctoral thesis.

The Universities of Modena/Reggio Emilia, Parma and Ferrara offer a wide training in mathematics and its applications. About 60 scholars in pure and applied mathematics are member of the PhD board, with a strong expertise in fields as diverse as partial differential equations, probability theory and stochastic processes, geometry and combinatorics, numerical analysis and scientific computation,number theory, mathematical physics.
