The Free University of Bozen-Bolzano (unibz) was founded in 1997 as a multilingual, internationally oriented institution. The university promotes the free exchange of ideas and scientific knowledge, linking itself to the European humanities tradition and laying the foundations for its society by promoting respect for democratic principles. Its international orientation is further emphasized by its commitment to multilingualism and its international academic staff and student body.
The Free University of Bozen-Bolzano champions research at the highest of levels, is committed to excellence and the advancement of knowledge through critical and independent scholarship and values the freedom to push the frontiers of knowledge forward. Research projects which are interdisciplinary, international or which have local relevance are particularly encouraged. In this respect, unibz endorses research, and is especially committed to promoting young researchers.
A public competition for the allocation of PhD positions in Advanced-Systems Engineering is announced, for
11 positions: 7 will be covered by grants*, 1 place is for a Research Assistant, 2 places without grant and 1 position is for an Industrial PhD student (Dottorato Industriale).
The purpose of this international PhD programme is to train a new generation of researchers able to carry out independent research in the areas of Advanced-Systems Engineering and give them the opportunity to transfer and exchange knowledge with national and international research centers and industries.
The three-year PhD programme focuses on the study and development of advanced and intelligent systems through an interdisciplinary approach that responds to recent technological developments (e.g. Cyber-Physical-Systems, Industry 4.0, Internet of Things) by integrating the disciplines of industrial mechanical engineering and information engineering. They are supported by specific skills in mathematics and artificial intelligence.
Duration: 3 years Research Areas: The research projects of PhD students will pertain to the following research areas, which are being developed by research groups on a long-term basis and constitute the core themes of this programme:
Automation and Electronic-Systems Engineering;
System Modelling and Evolution.
Official teaching language: English
