The AI group is actively involved in teaching activities both at the Master and PhD level.


The group is always open to hear about strongly motivated students who could be interested in pursuing a PhD with us in any of the research areas that we are concerned with - if you fall into this category, do not hesitate to contact us. Please, include your transcripts, CV, and a research statement, in order to give us some idea of why you want to do the PhD with us. You should show some familiarity with our current research and possibly have some preliminary ideas about the research you would like to do with us. The general DTIC PhD programme website provides more information to prospective students, including registration procedures and funding opportunities.

DTIC research positions

The Department of Information and Communication Technologies (DTIC) at Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona seeks doctoral applications for the academic year 2018-19 from talented students with a strong interest in research.

DTIC Fellowships


UPF is ranked as the most productive university in Spain in research outcome and attraction of funds (THE2013) and 13th worldwide among young universities (THE2013, 100 under 50). DTIC-UPF community (> 50 nationalities) conducts research in a broad range of fields created around the convergence of ICT with computing science, networks, biomedical and cognitive sciences. The active participation in international programs (65 projects in FP7, including 9 prestigious ERC grants and the Human Brain Project) creates a unique environment for the development of talented researchers.


Future emerging technologies will provide both interactivity and intelligence. The Master's degree in Intelligent Interactive Systems (MIIS), in which the group is actively involved, addresses these trends, focusing on the design, principles, and use of agents that can interact intelligently with humans and other agents: agents that can perceive, act, learn, plan, and communicate.
