Faculty areas of supervision

Prospective applicants should look closely at the research interests specified by the professors in their personal web pages. These will provide the clearest idea of the kinds of research topics that are supervised at the EUI. It should not be assumed that the interests listed are the only topics those professors will supervise, but they should serve as a useful guide. Specific research interests of the professors who are available to supervise new researchers are set out below.

Important note:

In the application form you are requested to list the names of three potential supervisors for your research. Faculty members will then become aware that you consider them as potential supervisors. However, you should not contact them and ask them for advice, as this could undermine the competitiveness and fairness of our selection procedure.

Results are highlighted inside the page.
