PhD scholarships 2016/17

I am looking for motivated PhD students to work with me in the areas of emotion- and personality-based recommender systems for the academic year 2016/17 at the Faculty of Computer Science at the Free University of Bolzano. The deadline for applying is 8. June 2016. The PhD study programme starts on 1. November 2016 and lasts three years. The Faculty of Computer Science will fund nine (9) PhD students. Please read the call for applications. Please, email me to discuss the topics.

The Free University of Bozen-Bolzano was founded in 1997 as a multilingual (English, German, Italian) internationally oriented institution.

A public competition for the allocation of 12 PhD positions in the Faculty of Computer Science is open, and 9 of these positions will be covered by grants (17,000€ per year). The deadline for submitting the application (admission/pre-enrolment to the 32nd PhD cycle) via is the 8th of June 2016.

PhD students are expected to work full-time on their research during the period of the PhD studies, which lasts three years. An additional support is given to spend a period of 6-12 months at an international research center. The official language of the programme is English, and it is expected that students are able to write and speak fluently in English.

The PhD study programme places an emphasis on research. PhD candidates are strongly advised to get in contact with me before applying. The Selection Committee ranks PhD students based on a comparative assessment of the merits and qualifications of applicants, taking into account also feedback from potential supervisors in the selected research area.
