The Research Centre on Interactive Media, Smart System and Emerging Technologies (RISE), as part of the RISE Doctoral Training Program announces five (5) PhD Fellowships under various Multidisciplinary Research Groups (MRGs). RISE is an equal opportunity employer. The positions are open to nationals of all EU and non-EU countries.
Overview of RISE’s Doctoral Training Program
RISE’s Doctoral Training Program (DTP) kicked off in 2019 providing the best possible experience of impactful collaboration, following best practices from across Europe. RISE’s DTP is a far more valuable and engaging experience compared to working only with an individual supervisor or a small group in a University. The RISE DTP experience provides a collaborative cohort environment, in addition to offering a wide range of projects, research and innovation activities and training opportunities fostering knowledge transfer and student engagement with the wider community and the partner institutions.
RISE’s DTP includes an in-house program for supporting and guiding PhD students who will be registered at a University of the RISE consortium (University of Cyprus, Cyprus University of Technology or Open University of Cyprus). The in-house program allows students to participate in scientific colloquia, research presentations, mobility activities and visits, joint supervision of PhDs, and joint projects organized in collaboration with RISE’s advanced partners (UCL and Max Planck) and other members of its developing network. RISE will also facilitate the development and innovation of research ideas and outcomes and provide mentoring opportunities (e.g., peer feedback, guidance by senior researchers).
Indicative list of DTP courses:
RISE DTP will aim to provide a direct link to the advanced partners via short-term placements at their premises. RISE DTP will support PhD students’ participation in conferences and study visits at established research centres across Europe.
RISE will award a certificate for the participation in the RISE DTP program.
