Ph.D. Scholarships for Physics and Engineering Students from ICTP in Italy

Place

Description

For more than 50 years, the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) has been a driving force behind global efforts to advance scientific expertise in the developing world. Founded in 1964 by the late Nobel Laureate Abdus Salam, ICTP seeks to accomplish its mandate by providing scientists from developing countries with the continuing education and skills that they need to enjoy long and productive careers. ICTP has been a major force in stemming the scientific brain drain from the developing world. ICTP - UNESCO is offering a Ph.D. scholarshipin Italy on olfactory search in a turbulent environment. Description of the Project: Odor-guided navigation is inherently difficult because turbulent airflow mixes the relevant chemical signal with clean air and with other background signals, resulting in a highly dynamic and complex odor landscape. Besides the immediate interest in animal behavior, understanding the principles of olfactory search and navigation stands at the basis of applications ranging from the localization of the source of dangerous substances to ecological control of vector-borne diseases. In the first stage, the problem of locating an odor source will be framed as a Reinforcement Learning problem and optimal solutions will be sought. This will also require answering the question about which is the most efficient representation of the olfactory landscape that the searcher must adopt for a given goal. Then we will turn to the problem of telling apart and reaching several distant sources which emit different odor blends, and we will also address the problem of cooperative olfactory search by many interacting agents. To apply, please send your application in English via email to celani@ictp.it Cover letter stating your motivation to apply and your key qualities relevant for this position. Up-to-date curriculum vitae. Diploma and transcripts of records (BSc and MSc) Contact information of two academic references.
