COMPAC is a newly-established PhD program at SNS, with the goal of training the next generation of world-leading researchers in today’s data-rich cosmological landscape. The program offers a broad range of courses and research training, focused on cosmological simulations, data-driven modeling, machine learning and Bayesian inference. PhD students receive a generous stipend, travel funds, and various additional benefits such as free meals and social/cultural events.
The Cosmology group at the SNS offers a dynamic, international research environment for COMPAC PhD students. It includes several faculty, associate scientists, a dozen postdoctoral researchers, a dozen PhD students, and has won numerous prestigious research awards (see http://cosmology.sns.it/ for more information on the members and some lines of research).
