PhD positions now available at Joint Doctoral Programme in Interactive and Cognitive Environments

Lucio Marcenaro
PhDs are starting in*November 2018 with a 3 years scholarship*;
expiration date for first level applications: *May 15th, 2018* on the
following research areas:

  * Big-data techniques for crowd behavior analysis in smart environments
  * Automatic learning of dynamic jamming models for physical layer
    security in Cognitive Radios
  * A machine learning approach for interaction detection in egocentric
    videos

The PhD scholarships are available within the Joint Doctoral Programme
in Interactive and Cognitive Environments (JD ICE) that is a PhD
programme organised by the Department of Electrical, Electronic,
Telecommunications Engineering and Naval Architecture at University of
Genoa, theCentre for Intelligent Sensing at Queen Mary University of
London <http://cis.eecs.qmul.ac.uk/> and theIntelligent Systems Lab of
the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid <http://www.uc3m.es/islab>.


      General information

Applications are invited for PhD open positions. JD ICE provides PhD
training in the fields of multimedia signal processing, data fusion,
computer vision, cognitive dynamic systems and machine learning, and
offers advanced research projects designed for ambitious students
willing to become word-leading researchers. PhD students will benefit
from a joint-supervision model and will spend main part of their PhD
programme in Genova, Italy with a 12 months (minimum) mobility to the
secondary institution.

The ISIP40 group, active in the DITEN department in the Faculty of
Engineering of the University of Genoa has focused its attention mostly on:

  * Cognitive Dynamic Systems
  * Multisensor Signal Processing for Surveillance
  * Software and Cognitive Radio
  * Bayesian Object and Situation assessment
  * Interactive and Cognitive Environments


      Open positions for PhD (dottorato di ricerca)

PhD course starts at the beginning of November 2018; expiration date for
first level applications:*May 15th, 2018*in the following research areas:

 1. *Big-data techniques for crowd behavior analysis in smart
    environments*: this research theme will study novel signal
    processing techniques based on probabilistic graphical models and
    dynamic Bayesian networks for understanding dynamics of cognitive
    systems and learn how to transfer this acquired knowledge;
 2. *Automatic learning of dynamic jamming models for physical layer
    security in Cognitive Radios*: this research theme will study
    algorithms and methods for cognitive radio terminals for
    opportunistic spectrum usage to optimize transmission rate and
    external attack robustness;
 3. *A machine learning approach for interaction detection in egocentric
    videos*: wearable cameras stand out as one of the most promising
    devices for the upcoming years, and as a consequence, the demand of
    computer algorithms to automatically understand the videos recorded
    with them is increasing quickly. An automatic understanding of these
    videos is not an easy task, and its mobile nature implies important
    challenges to be faced, such as the changing light conditions and
    the unrestricted locations recorded.


      Applications

Applications are invited for PhD open positions, starting at
the November 2018 with ISIP40 research group <https://www.isip40.it/>of
the Department of Electrical, Electronic, Telecommunications Engineering
and Naval Architecture (DITEN), University of Genova – Genova (ITALY).


        Requirements:

 1. *Laurea Vecchio Ordinamento* or *Laurea Specialistica* degree for
    Italian applicants in one of the following fields (or another
    related field); *Master of Science* or equivalent degree for
    applicants from abroad:
      * Telecommunication Engineering
      * Electronic Engineering
      * Information Engineering
      * IT
      * Computer Science (or Laurea degree in Informatica)
 2. Basic knowledge in the following topics:
      * Signal Processing
      * Communication Systems
      * Pattern Recognition
      * Image/Video Processing
 3. English knowledge (IELTS certificate with minimum marks 6.5)


        Deadline for applying:

Interested applicants must apply no later than *May 15th, 2018*.


        How to apply?

The application is divided into two stages.

In the first phase, the interested applicants should send their complete
C.V. and two recommendation letters to Professor Lucio Marcenaro,
e-mail: [hidden email]

In the second phase, applicants whose CV fits with requirements will be
encouraged and advised to present an application for the official
admission competition at Genoa University online application closing on
June 12th, 2018.


        PhD economic conditions

The research grant consists of about 16.5Keuro/year


        Notes:

A complete C.V. must contain at least the education degrees and the
related information, experiences (both academic and non-academic),
projects, list of publications, and every other thing you think can be
useful
If you have not graduated yet, provide some information about the
probable graduation date.
If you have some publications, you can also send some of the important
ones together with your CV.
You can also send any other information that you think can be useful and
effective for your profile.
