Applications are invited for PhD Positions within the Department of Electrical, Electronic, Telecommunications Engineering and Naval Architecture (DITEN), University of Genova. Both Italian and international applicants can apply for these positions. Two positions will be available for a period of 3 years starting in 2015. The research grant consists of about 14Keuro/year. Application should be submitted till 30th June, 2014.
Study Subject (s): Positions are available in the following research areas:
1) Bayesian networks and graph signal processing for cognitive dynamic systems: The proposed PhD involves the study of problems mainly related to modelling of users’ emotional states. Specifically signals acquired from egocentric vision sensors (e.g. Google glasses) will be considered for characterizing emotional behaviors of both single users and complex active entities (e.g. crowds). Activities will be oriented to address the use of developed methods within bio-inspired cognitive artificial systems for physical security and telecommunications. Possibility will be open during the PhD to join ongoing funded research projects when available within the joint labs ISIP40 has with industries (e.g. Technoaware, Telecom, ligurian industrial district SIIT).
2) Modelling dynamic spectrum access strategies for Cognitive Radio networks
The proposed PhD involves the study of cognitive radio networks under the viewpoint of designing bio-inspired learning approaches that allow adaptive methods for analysis and decision to evolve under the environmental operating conditions. Focus will be on Bayesian methods and game theory approach for modelling dynamic strategies for opportunistic spectrum access.
Possibility will be open during the PhD to join ongoing funded research projects when available within the joint labs ISIP40 has with industries (e.g. Technoaware, Telecom, ligurian industrial district SIIT).
Course Level: Positions are open for undertaking PhD research project.
