INdAM-DP-COFUND-2015 – INdAM Doctoral Programme in Mathematics and/or Applications cofunded by Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions
PhD student fellowships on Mathematical methods for 5G communications are available at the Turin Doctoral School of Mathematical Science in the framework of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action INdAM-DP-COFUND-2015.
Applicants to the fellowship program must be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their career and must not have been awarded a doctoral degree yet. They must also be in possession of a degree, which formally entitles them to embark in a Doctorate in Italy. Targeted candidates hold a MS degree in Mathematics, Physics, Communication Engineering or Computer Science. Basic knowledge of Probability Theory and Information Theory at undergraduate level is mandatory. Computer programming skills are welcome. Familiarity with Matlab/Octave, R and/or Mathematica is a plus.
Selected candidates will carry on research on applied random matrix theory, stochastic geometry and optimization, oriented at wireless network planning and (massive or traditional) MIMO channel modeling.
A competitive salary is offered; a generous mobility budget to attend courses and summer schools in prestigious european mathematical institutes and to participate to conferences and workshops is available. Short and long-term (up to 18 months) secondments in French and German academic institutions are possible, ruled by Marie-Curie actions mobility constraints.
Details on application procedure can be found here. For details please contact Giusi Alfano, Institute of Complex Systems and Condensed Matter Theory, DISAT, Politecnico di Torino. Deadline May 31st, 2017.
