The overall aim of the doctoral work-programme is to train PhD students with a solid background in Artificial Intelligence (AI), particularly in the area of Machine Learning (ML), in the application of AI and ML approaches to (Gen-)omics and Bioinformatics, in order to both perform original research in these multidisciplinary fields of Biology , and provide scientific support to the European Union policy focussing on human health and care, and citizen well-being.
We offer a three-year PhD position in collaboration with the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission.
The PhD research will be realized at the Joint Research Centre (JRC) in Ispra, Italy, for a period of up to 24 months. While at the JRC in Ispra, the PhD candidate will get a contract as a Grant Holder 20, while at UNIMI he will be funded through the PRIN project “Multi-criteria optimized data structures: from compressed indexes to learned indexes and beyond”, according to the Scholarship regimen of the University of Milan.
The PhD student will spend the first year at the Computer Science Department of the University of Milan, and the next two years at the JRC of Ispra. The starting date of the doctoral programme will be April 1st, 2020.
