PhD PROGRAMME IN MATERIALS, MECHATRONICS AND SYSTEMS ENGINEERING
ANNOUNCEMENT OF SELECTION: 35th cycle – Academic Year 2019/2020
FIRST CALL 2019 - Departments of Excellence (Italian Law 232/2016)
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: 15 MAY, hrs. 4.00 PM (+2 GMT)
Link to the Application on line
Positions: no. 8
Research fellowships (assegni di ricerca): no. 8 on the following specific research topics:
A: Modeling and simulation of vehicle emissions for the reduction of road traffic pollution
B: Concurrent design of hardware and control for high-performance robotic system
C: Smart multifunctional hierarchical cellular materials for implants with improved resistance and osteointegration
D: Ultrafine particulate matter and nanostructures materials: a comprehensive transmission electron microscopy approach
E: Production of multi-material structures by Direct Laser Metal Deposition
F: Production of WC-based nanocrystalline materials by electrical field-current assisted technologies
G: Field-assisted synthesis/sintering and cold sintering of calcium phosphate-based nano-powders for biomedical applications
H: High-Performance Photodetectors based on Engineered 2D Transition Metal Dichalcogenides Layers
N.B.!! The positions in this first call are related to the appropriate funds allocated within the Departments of Excellence (Italian Law 232/2016), for which the Department of Industrial Engineering of the University of Trento was a beneficiary for the development of the project approved. All positions are on a specific topic (as reported above), and are therefore conditional on execution of that specific research topic for which certain skills, to be verified on the related file available in the Download box, are required. The subsequent publication of a second call for applications with positions covered by scholarships is foreseen. Applications for the second call will also be accepted by the participants of this first call, but those who will be winners both in the selection of the first call and in that of the second, will be automatically removed from the second since the winnings on the first call will be considered the first choice for the candidate and therefore binding.
The Academic year starts November 1, 2019.
Announcement of selection: Rector's Decree no. 185 of 01.04.2019, published on this webpage on April 2, 2019 – available in the “Download Box”*
*please note that only the Italian version of the call is legally binding, the English version is provided for information only.
Candidates are recommended to complete the online application well in advance before the deadline, in order to avoid possible technical problems or overcharge of the connection and/or of the application systems.
