Doctoral student position in Engineering and Ontology

The Politecnica University of Marche (Ancona, Italy) and the Laboratory 
for Applied Ontology of the CNR Institute for Cognitive Science and 
Technology (ISTC-CNR, Trento, Italy) offer one PhD position within their 
collaboration program.

We are looking to recruit a student with a strong interest in learning 
to analyze, develop and apply ontologies for the industrial engineering 
domain. The use of ontology in engineering is a growing 
interdisciplinary research area which has an important role in, e.g., 
design, manufacturing, cyber-physical systems modeling, robotics and 
human-computer interaction.

You should have a good Bachelor or Master degree (in any discipline but 
priority will be given to degrees in computer science and related areas) 
and willingness to live in Italy during the PhD program (3 years). The 
PhD studentship offers the opportunity to engage in international 
research and to interact with major figures in the domain.
The candidate is free to decide whether to locate in Ancona or in 
Trento. The scholarship amounts to 12.500 Euro per year and starts in 
fall 2017.

Please, send your statement of interest by May 15 to:
stefano.borgo at cnr.it
f.mandorli at staff.univpm.it.
