 Several Funded PhD Studentships in Computer Science at IMT Lucca 

   Deadline for applications – July 13th 2016, 6 pm Italian time

Applications are now being accepted for scholarships for the Computer Science and Systems Engineering (CSSE) curriculum within the 2016/17 PhD program at the IMT School for Advanced Studies Lucca (http://www.imtlucca.it), one of Italy’s schools of excellence.  

Research in computer science, carried out within the SysMA unit (http://sysma.imtlucca.it), deals with the development of languages and techniques for the analysis and verification of modern concurrent and distributed systems. Specific areas of expertise are concurrency theory, programming languages, and software engineering, with applications in a wide range of domains such as adaptive systems, cyber-physical systems, cloud computing, computational biology, fault-tolerant systems, security, and transportation networks. 

All students are based in the recently restored San Francesco complex, a fully integrated Campus in the historical center of the beautiful Tuscan city of Lucca. The Campus includes renewed residential facilities, an on-site canteen, study and living rooms, a state-of-the-art library and outdoor recreational spaces, which foster a unique cultural, professional and social environment for our doctoral program. Eligible students, in addition to free room and board, will receive a research scholarship which amounts to approximately €13,600/year. 

The PhD program at IMT attracts students from around the world, providing a truly international environment. English is the official language of the School. Moreover, all students will have the opportunity to spend periods abroad at research institutes, laboratories or universities, both within the Erasmus+ framework and through ad hoc mobility agreements.

Most IMT School PhD Graduates have reached prominent roles in academia, governmental institutions, public and private companies or professions across the globe.

Perspective students should preferably have a master-level background in computer science, engineering, physics, mathematics, statistics, or in a related field.
