Dottorato di Ricerca

Progetto Rocca Deadline April 15th

Positions are open for Doctoral and Post Doctoral at MIT.

The project aims at financing in particular researchers in the areas of materials science, mechanical engineering, bioengineering and life sciences, energy, electrical engineering and computer science. Projects that focus on buildings, infrastructure and planning will be considered only if they privilege mathematical and physical modeling and the novel use of materials.

The “Progetto Roberto Rocca” is a collaboration between MIT and Politecnico di Milano, funded by the Fondazione Fratelli Agostino and Enrico Rocca.
The initiative is meant to honour and remember the founder and late chairman of Techint Group, Roberto Rocca (1922-2003), an alumnus of both institutions (Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering, Politecnico di Milano, 1945; PhD in Metallurgical Sciences, MIT, 1950).
The Progetto Roberto Rocca aims at fostering academic exchanges and joint research, reinforcing existing collaborations between MIT and Politecnico and launching new ones.
The Project is focused on the “emergence of a new generation of talented researchers” and “the personal and professional networks”that will support long term MIT-Politecnico collaborations. 
Please note that applications are due April 15th —for the Fall Semester. All documents must be submitted electronically to
