Two Open Marie-Curie fellowships at Cloud4all partner UPM (Spain)




Cloud4all partner Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) is searching for PhD candidates for the  Marie-Curie project ACROSSING.

ACROSSING combines the efforts of a multi-disciplinary network of 26 leading European research groups, industry partners, and user organisations, to develop an open SH technology infrastructure and train 15 ESRs across sectors on concepts and methodologies of SHs towards the PhD. To achieve this, ACROSSING designs 15 topically complementary research projects covering the four core SH research areas, i.e. sensing, context inference, human system interaction and service based infrastructure, and four main SH application categories, i.e. independent living with cognitive impairments, self-management of chronic diseases, wellbeing and empowerment of the elderly.

The 2 ESRs hosted in Universidad Politécnica de Madrid will be responsible for developing novel approaches, architectures, technologies and tools to enable and support active aging, wellbeing and independent living. They will each undertake research in a well-defined individual research project and will be integrated to an experienced research and innovation group. In addition to this, they will also contribute to network-level research activities, technology and system integration, deliverables, event organisation and public engagement for dissemination and impact.

The ESRs will be required to undertake PhD studies and must fulfil the requirements of the university’s doctoral training programme. They will have opportunities to visit other network partners for secondments, and attend the research and training events of the network. All costs will be fully funded by the EU MSCA programme which also offers highly competitive and attractive salary and working conditions.
