Early Stage Researchers Scholarship Opportunity at ESTECO

Early stage researchers with a Master's or equivalent degree in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, Physics can apply for the scholarship opportunity at the ESTECO HQs in Trieste. The opportunity will be provided in the framework of the UTOPIAE training and research network, funded by the European Commission through the H2020 funding stream, in which ESTECO is a project partner. 

The project has several objectives, among which: to define and improve collaborative engineering environments and multidisciplinary collaborative optimisation strategies for distributed systems; to establish an effective approach for handling large-scale problems by finding a suitable way for managing the interactions among different subsystems; to extend modelling languages beyond the state-of-the-art; to define proper reliability measures for the multi-disciplinary optimisation problems; to define a methodology for reliability-based design optimisation in a multidisciplinary model-based collaborative framework and with man-in-the-loop activities. However, there is ample margin for tailoring the research content and applications according to the ESR’s interests and skills.
Part of the research project should be carried out in two secondments of three months each. The first secondment is planned in the second year at the JSI (Jožef Stefan Institute, Slovenia), while the second is planned in the third year at CIRA (Italian Centre for Aerospace Research, Italy).
The training programme will involve attendance of the UTOPIAE network formal training events (Global Virtual Workshops) and enrollment in the training activities of the University of Trieste “Industrial Engineering and Information Technology” PhD programme.

At the time of recruitment by the host organization, applicants must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organization (Italy) for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the recruitment date.
