The University of Calabria invites applications of non-Italian
citizens for 2 Ph.D. scholarships for the 2009 class of the
Doctoral Program in Mathematics and Informatics.

The Program has been activated by the Department of Mathematics
(, which is one of the largest departments of
the University of Calabria.

The Ph.D. period will be 3 years.

The University of Calabria will provide one successful candidate

Ph.D. positions are offered in a pleasant working environment with
excellent possibilities for professional development.

Successful candidates in Informatics (with projects focused on AI
and Computational Logics) will join the Database and Artificial
Intelligence group of the Department of Mathematics. The group has
deep knowledge in several AI areas, which are investigated with
respect to their theoretical aspects and their formal foundations
as well as with the respect to the design of practical
applications most often carried out in tight cooperation with
industrial partners. In particular, members of the group conduct
high-level research in the development of innovative
infrastructure for knowledge representation and reasoning, and
have achieved important results in developing non-monotonic
reasoning systems.

Only non-Italian citizens (from within European Community as well
as from outside) are allowed to submit. The required qualification
for being eligible for the program is a Master's Degree, or
