Two Ph.D. scholarships are available within the Joint Doctoral Programme in Interactive and Cognitive Environments (JD ICE) which is a Ph.D. program co-organized by the Department of Electrical, Electronic, Telecommunications Engineering and Naval Architecture at the University of Genoa (UNIGE) and Universidad Carlos III de Madrid.

General Information

Applications are invited for 2 Ph.D. open positions

JD ICE provides Ph.D. training in 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 world-leading researchers. Ph.D. students will benefit from a joint-supervision model and will spend part of their Ph.D. program in Madrid (Spain) and part in Genoa (Italy).

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

  1. Cognitive Dynamic Systems
  2. Multisensor Signal Processing for Surveillance
  3. Software and Cognitive Radio
  4. Bayesian Object and Situation assessment
  5. Interactive and Cognitive Environments
