Program Details

Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, Associazione Carlo Giannini, Centro Interuniversitario di Econometria (CIdE), Unicredit Foundation and Bank of Italy award a Research Fellowship in Econometrics in memory of Carlo Giannini. The Fellowship is aimed at young researchers of all nationalities who wish to undertake advanced research in econometrics in an Italian university. The competition is based on candidates curriculum, research papers and publications, and a research project.

The fellowship entitles the winner to a yearly sum of Euro 46,000 free of taxes and social security contributions. The fellowship amount will be disbursed as a monthly salary by the University of Venice.

Eligibility/ Requirements

The competition is open to young researchers of all nationalities. Preferably, the candidates should have completed their PhD after 30/9/2014 or be about to complete it by the beginning of the fellowship. The Fellowship is meant as an opportunity to spend two years doing no hassle full-time research. Therefore, teaching activities are excluded, with the possible exception for a limited amount of graduate teaching. The fellow must actively contribute to the research of the hosting Department/University, where (s)he is expected to spend most of her/his time.

Application Process

Candidates may apply by sending an email to, including in the subject line “Research fellowship Carlo Giannini” and the name of the candidate (other ways to submit the application may be found in the official call). Applications must be accompanied by the following documents (in PDF format and in English).

Compulsory requirements:

1.       The application form duly dated and signed

2.       Curriculum Vitae duly dated and signed

3.       A copy of a current identity document (in the original language)

4.       Research projects (2-3 pages)

Noncompulsory but highly recommended documentation:

5.       Letters of reference from academics who are well acquainted with the candidate’s research. The letters must be sent directly by the referees via e-mail (indicating “Research fellowship Carlo Giannini” and the name of the candidate in the subject line)

6.       Copy of three (at most) publications/working papers

7.       An indication of the Italian University/Department where the candidate plans to spend the fellowship

8.       A letter of the Director of the chosen Department confirming the availability of the Department to host the fellow and indicating the designated advisor, who has to be an expert in the field

Candidates may add any other documents they regard as relevant, such as certificates of academic qualifications (e.g., copies of undergraduate and Ph.D. diplomas or, for candidates who have not yet obtained a Ph.D., official transcripts of the grades obtained in the exams of the Ph.D. program and a declaration from the supervisor about the status of the thesis).

The documents under points 7 and 8, although not strictly needed, are preferential. In case they are missing, but the candidate appears outstanding, the award committee will try and match the research project with the econometric research carried on in Italian Universities, and check the availability of the potentially hosting university. The Department of Economics of the University of Venice has declared in advance its availability to host good candidates without a pre-defined destination.
