PhD Positions: 16 PhD Fellowships available in a EU Marie Curie Network
in Signal Processing, Aalborg, Denmark; Leuven, Belgium; Lisbon,
Portugal; Nice, France

16 PhD fellowships available in an EU Marie Curie network in signal
processing. A total of 16 Ph.D. studentships are 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

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.

SIGNAL is aimed at providing a unified training in signal processing,
focusing 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 stay 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 focusing 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).
