TEMPO vacancies: 14 PhD fellowships for start in 2014

TEMPO is an international PhD program for highly motivated young scientists, where state-of-the-art research is combined with a comprehensive training program. The network is funded by the European Community’s Seventh Framework program. TEMPO addresses the needs of European companies and society for embedded control technology, through training on cutting edge research in the rapidly emerging inter-disciplinary field of embedded predictive control and optimization.

Ten partners from academia and industry, as well as three associated partners will provide a multi-national and interdisciplinary training infrastructure, designed to equip the participating fellows with the necessary knowledge and set of tools to pursue successful careers. We are now recruiting 14 PhD candidates for a range of identified projects. For details regarding individual project description, the offered fellowships, and the application process and requirements, please visit the webpages of the individual projects following the links in the list below.

Candidates must apply for each position according to the announcements and deadlines made by each of the partners.
