Career opportunities

Based on the experience in third level education and training in Mathematics at Politecnico di Torino, the PhD Course in Mathematical Sciences is expected to give rise to the following career opportunities:

  • Employment in academic contexts, such as Universities and Research Centres, in Italy and abroad, at first with fixed-term positions (research fellowships, fixed-term researchership), which may subsequently develop into permanent positions;
  • Employment in industries and private bodies, such as banks and insurance companies, where the PhD title in Mathematical Sciences and the related research experience are highly considered;
  • Employment in high-technology industries, also in the context of Artificial Intelligence, where mathematical modelling plays a fundamental role;
  • Employment in secondary schools, also with managerial jobs, typically with the preservation of tight contacts with Politecnico di Torino and the realm of university education.
