8 PhD positions - Erasmus Mundus Doctorate in Interactive and Cognitive Environments (ICE)

Research areas of interest:
  • Assistive technologies: Human-Computer Interaction, Pervasive Computing, Multimedia systems & simulation environments;
  • Network-embedded systems: Pervasive Computing, Distributed Mobile systems, Multimedia Networks;
  • People-inspired technologies: Human Computer Interaction, Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Systems, Data Mining;
  • Design for social interaction: Adaptive systems, Autonomous systems, Aware environments;
  • Multi-sensor surveillance: Cognitive Data Fusion, Machine Learning, Digital Signal Processing.
The Erasmus Mundus Joint/Double Doctorate in Interactive and Cognitive Environments (EMJD ICE) fourth Call for Application is now open, with expected deadline in January 13, 2013, offering 8 granted PhD positions.
The programme give the PhD candidates the opportunity to enjoy the meaningful experience of an education programme in the field of research related to computer science, electronic and telecommunication engineering, and industrial design.

The attraction of the ICE doctorate is mainly referable to the chance, guaranteed to any wishful applicant interested in the programme, to acquire and to formalize the knowledge in specific advanced domains, achieved through the active participation in lectures and seminars; furthermore, they are constantly stimulated to be in strict touch with leading research groups that have proven experiences in research activities in basic disciplines necessary for the PhD course in the five partner universities involved in the project (Universit√† degli Studi di Genova/UniGe – Technische Universiteit Eindhoven/TU/e – Queen Mary University of London/QMUL – Universitat Polit√®cnica de Catalunya/UPC – Technische Universitet Klagenfurt/UNIKLU). And “last but not least”, the ICE programme involves actual industry/academy joint research activities on projects in cooperation with leading ICT companies, typically under international institutional umbrellas, such as the European Research Frameworks. 26 partners worldwide, coming both from the industrial and the academic sector, have already expressed their support to EMJD ICE demonstrating the international relevance of the course.

The selected candidates will be in receipt of a scholarship of €2,800 as gross monthly salary for living expenses financed by the EACEA (European Community) through the ICE Consortium; additionally, Cat. A students will receive €7,500 for travel expenses.

The selected candidates will be provided a structured mobility scheme that foresees a stay in two of the five partner universities. In this frame, they will be also offered to participate actively in some noteworthy events, such as the yearly ICE Summer School that is held, year by year on a rotating basis, in one of the hosting institutions. A specific provision of training focused on the acquisition of targeted skills is guaranteed by the programme. A key role is played by theproject supervisors (two at least are assigned in both the hosting institutions), since they take care of the study progress of the PhD candidates and help them to improve their research capabilities.

The medium of instruction is English; nevertheless, the PhD students will be offered language courses that will allow them to improve their ability to interact with various subjects in the most common situations of everyday life. At the same time, the candidates will be provided assistance in legal and administrative procedures.

It can be surely told that the ICE programme mainly aims at enforcing the PhD candidates’ intellectual and academic capability, on one hand, and atpromoting, on the other, a tangible integration in the society through ad-hoc courses and university staff support.

So…join us!
Visit our official website at in order to be fully informed about the selection and admission procedures!
