Pre- and postdoc opportunities



ICTP believes that talent is found everywhere; we all gain from the diversity of perspectives created by ensuring that scientists are empowered and can contribute to scientific discourse independently of possibly constraining factors such as geography, gender, class, or ethnicity. The Centre works to transcend such barriers both to individual achievement and to building the science base in developing countries, through our training and education programmes.

From the Centre’s Postgraduate Diploma Programme, an intense, year-long course of study that gives young scientists from developing countries the boost they need for acceptance into doctoral programmes anywhere in the world, to the Centre’s Associates Scheme, which supports sabbatical visits of established scientists, ICTP provides a lifeline for a lifetime of learning.

Today, ICTP alumni can be found in 188 countries around the world, serving as science ambassadors in their home countries and sharing their knowledge with new generations of scientists.
