Universitat Pompeu Fabra PhD Fellowships in Information and Communication Technologies

The Department of Information and Communication Technologies (DTIC) at Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona seeks doctoral applications for the academic year 2015-16 from talented students with a strong interest in research. Up to 20 PhD positions are being offered.

UPF is ranked as the most productive university in Spain in research outcome and attraction of funds (THE2013) and 13th worldwide among young universities (THE2013, 100 under 50). DTIC-UPF community (> 50 nationalities) conducts research in a broad range of fields created around the convergence of ICT with computing science, networks, biomedical and cognitive sciences. The active participation in international programs (65 projects in FP7, including 9 prestigious ERC grants and the Human Brain Project) creates a unique environment for the development of talented researchers.

Research Topics
Cognitive nd Intelligent Systems: Cognition, Computation and Robotics; Artificial Intelligence and Theoretical Computer Science; Natural Language Processing; Ubiquitous Computing; Information Retrieval and Data Mining; Cognitive Multimedia Technologies

Audiovisual Technologies: Image Processing and Computer Vision; Image Processing for Enhanced Cinematography; Sound and Music Computing; Human-Computer Interaction, Graphics and Educational Technologies

Networks and Communications: Network Technologies and Strategies; Wireless Communications; Information Theory and Coding

Computational Biology and Biomedical Systems: Computational Neuroscience; Computational Imaging and Computational Physiology; Analysis of Biomedical Data; Non-linear signal analysis; Instrumentation and Biomedical Electronics; Simulation, Imaging and Modelling for Biomedical Systems.

The DTIC also supports the Center of Brain and Cognition (CBC), offering additional opportunities for PhD.

Candidates for PhD positions must hold an MsC degree or equivalent. Candidates not fulfilling this requirement may be interested in DTIC’s 1-year research master programs as a stepping stone to later join the PhD program (Sound and Music Computing, Cognitive Systems and Interactive Media, Intelligent Interactive Systems - with UPC, Brain and Cognition, Computer Vision - coordinated by UAB, Wireless Communications - with UPC, starting 2015-16).

Contact and application
Initial contact with potential supervisors and early applications are strongly encouraged. Applications are accepted continuously with 5 application periods along the year, until June 26th 2015.
