Research Fellows (YRF) at Institute for Advanced Studies, IMT Lucca are
selected through the Young Research Fellow Program, with international
selection procedures. A Young Research Fellow is typically hired on a
three-year renewable contract for an Assistant Professor or a
Post-Doctoral Fellow position.

Lucca is a dynamic center for young researchers. A combination of
private and public funds enables IMT to compete on an international
level to attract top junior faculty. International selection processes
comply with international standards including the European Charter for
Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.
Once hired, IMT incentive schemes are designed to promote and reward
scientific productivity.

IMT Research Fellow is a resident researcher pursuing advanced studies.
IMT competitions for Research Fellows offer positions for both
Assistant Professors and Post-Doctoral Fellows and involve evaluation
by current junior and senior researchers.


Fellows are appointed for a fixed term from one year up to three years.
All contracts may be renewed once, for up to six years. IMT Research
Fellows work closely with other young researchers, graduate students,
and senior researchers, and have a limited teaching load in the
school’s graduate programs. Evaluation procedures are based on rigorous
peer review criteria. IMT believes that faculty and staff diversity
contributes to excellence and is an equal-opportunity employer.
