The US Department of Energy (DoE) and the National Institute for Nuclear Physics - Italy (INFN) announce the 2014 edition of the Summer Exchange Program, dedicated to the exchange of US and Italian students in science and engineering.
INFN, one of the leading organization worldwide promoting basic scientific reasearch, is involved with cutting-edge activities in all major INFN-DoE areas of interest: Particle Physics, Astroparticle Physics, Nuclear Physics, Theoretical Physics and Detector Physics (see http://www.infn.it/).
The present call for applications is addressed to US students who are willing to join a INFN research team operating in Italy, for 2 months between June 1st and October 31st, 2014.
Positions are available at the following INFN sites, as described in this table.
The INFN sites involved in the program are:
- Bari, Bologna, Cagliari, Catania, Ferrara, Genova, Lecce, Milano, Napoli, Padova, Roma, Roma Tor Vergata, Roma Tre, Torino, Trieste;
- Frascati National Laboratory, Gran Sasso National Laboratory, Legnaro National Laboratory and South National Laboratory.
Candidates must be enrolled as students at a US university and they must have begun, at the time of application,at least the third year of a US University curriculum in physics, engineering or computing science.
Grants amount to Euro 5000 for covering travel and living expenses. They are subjected to a reduction due to Italian income taxes. See "Info for selected students" for more details about the tax reduction in Italy.
Since September 2010, citizens of countries like US may enter Italy for a period of up to 90 days without a visa, to take part in the exchange program (please check here for non-US citizenships).
