The Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) has established an interdisciplinary PhD programme in collaboration with the Open University (OU; Milton Keynes, UK), in the form of an OU Affiliated Research Centre at the IIT (ARC@IIT). The PhD programme confers Doctorates in Health, Sustainable and Human Technologies, with research activities carried out in the framework of the OU Affiliated Research Centre at IIT in Genova.
Programme. The PhD in Health, Sustainable and Human Technologies is a programme of excellence, which comprises taught modules (delivered on site or remotely) a) in disciplinary subjects, b) in transferable skills including IP protection and commercialization, and c) in the major challenges our societies face (energy supply, sustainability, mental health, ageing, epidemics).
The maximal duration of projects is 4 years; an intermediate examination takes place before the end of the first year and must be passed to allow progression to the remainder of the programme.
The opportunities. We invite applications from outstanding candidates.
If you wish to carry out a research at the forefront of nano, life and robotic technologies under the supervision of internationally leading scientists, please find below a list of available PhD projects (with the expected starting date); this includes a succinct description, the specific requirements (including background of the applicants) and the contact details of the main supervisor.
