Funded PhD in Sustainable Computing in European doctoral network - Greenedge (MSCA ITN)

Deadline: 31 May 2021

Greenedge is a Marie Sklodowska Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN). Its chief goal is to promote, design and implement machine learning based computing systems for the mobile edge that are highly energy efficient. For this, a research and training program has been carefully developed covering multi-disciplinary topics spanning from machine learning to renewable energy resources.

Greenedge targets the creation of a training network of 15 early stage researchers, who will carry out research on sustainable computing paradigms. They will confront a highly cross-disciplinary endeavour, mastering the fundamentals of energy generation and storage, mobile network management, machine learning, mathematical optimisation and distributed computing. By the end of the project, they will be ready to take a prominent role in the industry or academia, leading the design and implementation of green computing systems for the years to come.

Greenedge is currently hiring 15 talented PhD students, to join its green computing revolution. They will be supervised by renowned experts in the fields of mobile computing, machine learning and telecommunications systems. 

Requirements for applicants

  • Early-Stage Rule: applicants should be, at the time of recruitment by the host institution, in the first four years (full-time equivalent) of their research careers and have not yet been awarded a doctoral degree. This is measured from the date when they obtained the degree, which would formally entitle them to embark on a doctorate.
  • Mobility Rule: at the time of recruitment, the applicant must not have lived in the country where the position is offered for more than 12 months in the previous 36 months.
  • PhD Rule: once selected by the GREENEDGE consortium for the ESR positions, the applicants must apply for the PhD program at the respective recruiting sites.
  • Priority List: applicants can select up to 3 individual projects (list of projects available at the call website). The hiring process will take into account the priority specified by the applicant.

The host organisation appoints each eligible researcher under an employment contract. The duration of the contract is 36 months. The ESR fellows are expected to join their host organizations starting from September 2021 (estimated). The ESR is covered under the social security scheme that applies to employed workers within the country of the host organization, or under a social security scheme providing at least sickness and maternity benefits in kind, invalidity and accidents at work and occupational diseases, and covering the researcher in every place of implementation of the project activities.

The Living Allowance amount is €3,270 per month (basic gross salary). This amount is then multiplied by the correction coefficient applicable to the country where the ESR will be hosted.

Mobility Allowance contributes to the private expenses of the researcher due to their mobility. The amount of the mobility allowance amounts to €600 per month.

Family Allowance of €500 per month will be paid should the researcher have family, regardless of whether the family will move with the researcher or not. In this context, family is defined as persons linked to the researcher by (i) marriage, or (ii) a relationship with equivalent status to a marriage recognised by the national or relevant regional legislation of the country where this relationship was formalised; or (iii) dependent children who are actually being maintained by the researcher.

The family status of a researcher will be determined at the time of their (first) recruitment in the project and will not evolve during the project lifetime.

Deadline: 31 May 2021
