*Open Positions for Ph.D.**
*2 positions (3 years) starting in 2015; expiration date for first level 
applications: June 20th, 2014

*Research Areas:**
**/1- Bayesian networks and graph signal processing for cognitive 
dynamic systems/**
*The proposed PhD involves the study of problems mainly related to 
modelling of users' emotional states. Specifically signals acquired from 
egocentric vision sensors (e.g. Google glasses) will be considered for 
characterizing emotional behaviors of both single users and complex 
active entities (e.g. crowds).
Activities will be oriented to address the use of developed methods 
within bio-inspired cognitive artificial systems for physical security 
and telecommunications.
Possibility will be open during the PhD to join on going funded research 
projects when available within the joint labs ISIP40 has with industries 
(e.g Technoaware, Telecom, ligurian industrial district SIIT).

/*2- Modelling dynamic spectrum access strategies for Cognitive Radio 
networks*//*
*/The proposed PhD involves the study of cognitive radio networks under 
the viewpoint of designing bio-inspired learning approaches that allow 
adaptive methods for analysis and decision to evolve under the 
environmental operating conditions. Focus will be on Bayesian methods 
and game theory approach for modelling dynamic strategies for 
opportunistic spectrum access.
Possibility will be open during the PhD to join on going funded research 
projects when available within the joint labs ISIP40 has with industries 
(e.g Technoaware, Telecom, ligurian industrial district SIIT).


*Applications:**
*Applications are invited for 2 PhD open positions, starting at the 
beginning of 2015 with ISIP40 research group (www.isip40.it) of the
