We are happy to announce the opening of the call for applications to
the new edition of the <http://www.dp-pmi.org/>Doctoral Programme in
the Physics and Mathematics of Information: Foundations of Future
Information Technologies (DP-PMI), starting in September 2017.
The DP-PMI aims at providing advanced curricular and research
training in the recent developments and fundamental challenges in
information sciences and technologies, namely in:
- Classical and Quantum Information Theory;
- Classical and Quantum Logic, Computation and Machine Learning;
- Classical and Quantum Information Security and Communications;
- Nanoenergetics and Quantum Thermodynamics;
- Ultimate limits to precision measurements and navigation.
The DP-PMI is hosted by <http://www.ist.utl.pt/en/>Instituto Superior
<http://www.ist.utl.pt/en/>Tecnico (IST), the School of Science and
Engineering of the University of Lisbon, in Portugal, and
<http://www.dp-pmi.org/faculty.html>seven associated research centres.
The programme is <http://www.dp-pmi.org/support.html>funded mainly by
a 2.2 MEuro grant from the
<http://www.fct.pt/index.phtml.en>Portuguese Science Foundation
(FCT). The DP-PMI started in January 2014 and currently has 27
students (20 male + 7 female) from 11 different nationalities. The
programme will recruit up to 13 students in this call, and overall
will train 40 doctoral students by 2021.
The Doctoral Programme in the Physics and Mathematics of Information
aims at recruiting top-level students at the global scale, and train
them in a multidisciplinary and international setting. The
applications for the DP-PMI are very competitive, with an average
success rate of around 15%.
The <http://www.dp-pmi.org/applications.html>applications for the new
edition of the DP-PMI are open until 30 April 2017.
