Job opportunities and potential areas of employment

Carrer opportunities are related to all the positions requiring senior researchers who are able to manage, co-ordinate and carry out research and development projects in all the typical fields of civil, or chemical, or environmental and Materials engineering and industrial biotechnology. In the academic 2012/2013, the PhD programme in Civil, Environmental and Materials Engineering and that in Chemical, Environmental and Safety Engineering merged by giving rise the new programme PhD@DICAM. Most of the PhD students who attended in the last years the two previous PhD programmes obtained a professionally satisfying employment at public or private bodies: public administration, utilities management agencies, professional companies, research institutes. Around 20% of the employments were obtained abroad. Around 40% remained in the academic environment at the University of Bologna or others, obtaining a permanent position or a temporary position within project contracts.
