The Department of Engineering of the University of Ferrara offers PhD 
scholarships for students holding an MSc (or equivalent title) obtained 
abroad (outside of Italy).

We are looking for talented, highly motivated and skilled candidates to 
study and do research on ECLiPSe and CLP in general to solve complex 
optimization problems. Possible research directions include 
(non-exhaustive list):

1. Logic Programming and Constraint Programming
2. Integration of Constraint Programming and Operations Research 
techniques to solve complex combinatorial problems
3. Applications of Logic Programming to Computational Sustainability 
problems.

The research team works mainly on applications of CLP to real-life 
problems; recent applications include work in hydraulics, nurse 
scheduling, electronic devices, computational sustainability.

The duration of the position is three years, and the net grant is about 
12,000 euros per year.
PhD students are expected to work full-time on their research during the 
period of the PhD studies, which lasts three years. Additional supports 
are available to spend a period of 4+ months at an international 
research center.
For research visits abroad the grant can increase up to 50%. Extra 
funding is available for participation to international conferences, 
schools, workshops.
The position does not include teaching duties.

The deadline for application will be the 1st of August, the selection 
will be in September. In case you are interested, please drop an email 
to me (marco.gavanelli@...17...) as soon as possible and I will provide 
further details.

Students must be able to write and speak fluently in English; knowledge 
of Italian is helpful but not compulsory.

Ferrara is an attractive Renaissance city and its city center is a 
UNESCO World Heritage Site. Ferrara is close to Bologna, and Venice can 
be reached by train in 1 hour. A culturally vibrant city, Ferrara has a 
high quality of life at modest living costs.
