16 PhD fellowships available in an EU Marie Curie network in signal
processing A total of 16 Ph.D. studentships is available for 36 months
each, funded by the Marie Curie Early Stage Research Training Network.
Interested candidates are invited to consult the SIGNAL web site http://est-signal.i3s.unice.fr SIGNAL in short
The European Doctoral Program in Signal Processing
(SIGNAL) has been
awarded funding (about 3.000.000 Euros) for 16 PhD grants + 9 short
stays) from the EU Human Resources and Mobility program. These Early
Stage Research Training Host Fellowships are the most competitive EU
Marie Curie Actions.  
SIGNAL is a consortium of four universities
– University of Nice, and it’s Signal and Systems laboratory (I3S), the coordinator, France.
– University of Aalborg, and it’s KOM department, Denmark
– University of Lisbon, and it’s Technical Institute (IST), Portugal
– University of Leuven, and it’s Signal and Systems division (ESAT), Belgium Objectives

SIGNAL is aimed at providing a unified training in signal processing,
focussing on the fundamental research aspects of signal processing,
offering the early stage researcher an in-depth knowledge of the field,
not restricted to a particular subdomain of applications. Moreover, due
to the strong links of the participant in industrial projects and in
various types of applications, the researchers will have the
opportunity to apply their results in the real world.  

The research training project is structured around three main
activities A PhD program , spread over the four partners. Each partner
will propose 4 PhD internships as well as 1 one year stays to fund
students in the final stage of their PhD. All PhDs will be based on
common supervision by two host institutions, the candidate spending two
years in the main institution and one year in the other one (or with
any institute of the consortium, if the project needs it).
PhD topics
(will) may be of two natures, some being application driven, the other
investigating fundamental aspect of signal processing methods and
signal characteristics.
A course program provided in coordination with each institution’s
doctoral school. The set of courses, most of them already existing,
will enable the researchers to have both a broad background on core
signal processing disciplines as well as a deep knowledge of specific
topics needed for their PhD. The course program will be mainly
focussing on fundamental signal processing techniques.
It will be
complemented in each institution by series of seminars given by
representatives of the industrial companies affiliated to the program
and involved in the application-driven theses topics.

A workshop and summer camp program. A series of three workshops, will
provide the opportunity to the students both to present their results
and to improve their presentation skills (specific public speaking
courses will be provided to this end).
