9 PhD RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS IN INFORMATION
TECHNOLOGY, MATHEMATICS AND ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING
Faculty of Information Technology, Mathematics, and Electrical Engineering at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) invites applicants for 9 PhD Research Fellowships.
The fellowships are intended for PhD studies and are open to applicants in all areas of research covered by the 6 departments of IME:
Department of Computer and Information Science
Department of Engineering Cybernetics
Department of Electronics and Telecommunications
Department of Mathematical Sciences
Department of Electrical Power Engineering
Department of Telematics
The 9 Research Fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis, to help recruit talented candidates for the PhD study programs administered by IME.
These programs comprise the following fields of research; communication technology, computer science, cybernetics, electronics, information science, mathematics, power engineering and statistics.
Collaboration with researchers from other areas of science and engineering at NTNU, as well as with external partners from industry, research institutes, and other universities (Norway and abroad) is commonplace. Further information on IME and its 6 departments is available at http://www.ime.ntnu.no.
The Faculty wants to attract the best candidates available and places few
restrictions on training background and field of research. Applicants must, however, contact a relevant research group at IME and name a prospective thesis supervisor prior to submitting their application. The final selection of candidates will be subject to considerations of thematic spread across the departments at IME.
Applicants must have completed a master’s degree (MSc, MEng) or provide
documentation of equivalent training in a field relevant to research pursued at one of IME’s departments, and must satisfy the formal grades requirements for admission to the PhD studies at NTNU.
See http://www.ime.ntnu.no/Dr.gradsstudier/ for detailed information on the PhD programs administered by IME. PhD fellowships at NTNU are normally awarded for a total of 4 years, incl.. 25% (1 man-year) of teaching assistance at the bachelor’s and master’s degree level. These duties are commonly distributed over the 4 years, with a larger proportion in the first two years.
