PhD International Mobility

Innovative Training Networks (ITN) - Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (ITN) Actions, under the Horizon 2020 European programme, are aimed at creating research training courses of excellence 

Early Stage Researchers (ESR) are usually selected in international contexts. They are admitted to doctoral programmes following the publication of a specific call for applications issued by the University of Milan, according to different schedules.

Co-supervision of doctoral theses

The co-supervision of doctoral theses is an ad-hoc agreement in favour of a doctoral student, signed between the University of Milan and a partner University. Under this agreement:

  • the doctoral student carries out his/her research activity under the joint responsibility of the supervising professors of the two Universities;
  • the doctoral student must be enrolled in the first year of the programme in order to carry out the study and research activity at both Universities for equivalent periods;
  • the doctoral thesis will be presented only once in a single venue before a Board including members from both Universities;
  • the PhD title is issued by both Universities.

Call for 1 PhD position (PhD Course of Chemistry) in the frame of MSCA (ITN-ETN) “Small-Molecule Drug Conjugates for Targeted Delivery in Tumor Therapy” - Magicbullet::Reloaded

One PhD position (36 months) is available at the Department of Chemistry of the University of Milan (Università degli Studi di Milano) in the frame of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN-ETN) “Small-Molecule Drug Conjugates for Targeted Delivery in Tumor Therapy” (Magicbullet::Reloaded) funded by the European Commission (Grant agreement no: 861316).

The researcher, who will take part in the above project, will be enrolled by the University of Milan in the PhD Course of Chemistry, granting a PhD degree at the end of three years.

The Marie-Skłodowska-Curie European Training Network Magicbullet::Reloaded will develop and employ approaches for selective, targeted delivery of a panel of anticancer drugs for directed tumor therapy. The activities of the consortium will be devoted to four different project areas:

  • Small molecule-drug conjugates (SMDCs) and peptide-drug conjugates (PDCs)
  • Multivalency and crosstalk with the immune system
  • Pharmacokinetics: Transport, drug release, and metabolism
  • Biological evaluation of the conjugates
