Open positions

1 Phd position (deadline 31 August 2017)

In the framework of EIT Digital Industrial Phds, we offer 1 Phd grant inside the ICT Doctoral School of University of Trento, dealing with the following topic:

City Enabler for Digital Urban Services: This thesis will leverage on the City Enabler concept, namely an IT solution that offers a collaborative plaza allowing all relevant private/public stakeholders to work together, both for publishing data and for exploiting them to create novel urban services. In particular, the thesis will investigate innovative approaches, techniques and tools for the data and service management, specifically for the “intelligent” retrieval and presentation of information distilled from PA (Public Administration) documents. The thesis will lead to the development of an information retrieval tool, allowing flexible, multi-layered search of documents content and ranking the search output according to stakeholders’ preferences. The results will be evaluated in real-world pilots in the scope of research and industrial projects in the Autonomous Province of Trento.    

The ideal Phd candidate has a Master's degree in Computer Science or related topics, possibly with some expertise in database management, information retrieval and knowledge management. Good command of English and Italian is mandatory. 

Advisors: Sara Tonelli ( ), Marco Pistore ( )
