Selected applicants receive monthly stipends during their stay at the MVDSI. Take a look at the H2020, Erasmus+ and national projects we are currently working on.

Applications for PhD and Master thesis projects (DSG Group)

We are always looking for bright and enthusiastic people to join our group. We’re opportunistic, and will work to accommodate outstanding candidates. If you are looking to do a PhD with some of us, please send us an email. State briefly why you are interested and attach a CV, including information about the grades you had as an undergraduate.

There are PhD and Master scholarships available. We would be happy to support you after you apply to our group. Take a look at the H2020 and Erasmus+ projects we are currently working: Fed4FireSmart4All and six different Erasmus+ projects.

If you are a Master student at South East European University looking for a Master project, contact me (or any group member) per email or stop by my office.

If you are interested in pursuing a Master degree at South East European University, see SEEU Postgraduate Programs. Sometimes, we take master students or summer interns from other universities if we get exceptional applicants (this usually means very good grades and a personal recommendation).
