Master Scholarships at Politecnico di Torino, Italy


The "Specializing Master" is a scientific perfection qualification that you can
acquire if you have a three year degree (I level specializing master) or a five
year degree (II level specializing master). It is possible to participate both
in the I and II level masters with the old degree system. In order to obtain a
master qualification you must follow a course that is equivalent to a minimum of
60 credits.

A "Specializing Master" is a point of connection between industry and university
that allows one to enter the world of work through an education offer that can
fill a niche. The master course is a flexible university course of higher value
than a degree as it allows a specific professional figure to be formed (I level
specializing master), or to attain a higher specialisation (II level
specializing master).

University of Amsterdam (UvA) - PhD position - The external dimension of EU regulatory governance

PhD position - The external dimension of EU regulatory governance

Job description

The PhD candidate will undertake research on the external dimension of EU regulatory governance in one or more substantive policy fields linked to the European internal market and the global trading regime. Possible policy fields to be studied include financial regulation, competition/anti-trust, data privacy, product safety (e.g. food and drug safety, GMOs, chemicals), environmental protection (e.g. control of illegal logging, transboundary water management, climate change), food security, and development cooperation.

The position is funded by the EU Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) research project ‘Global Reordering: Evolution through European Networks (GR:EEN)’, and forms part of a work package on ‘Global Public Policy: Trade and Finance’ directed at the University of Amsterdam by Prof. Jonathan Zeitlin and Dr Daniel Mügge. This work package focuses on the extension of new or ‘experimentalist’ forms of governance developed for the regulation of the European internal market to relations with the EU’s trading partners, and their potential contribution to emerging arrangements for global regulatory governance in a rising multi-polar world.

Over the past fifteen years, the EU has developed a new architecture of experimentalist governance based on framework rule-making and revision through recursive review of comparative implementation experience in diverse local contexts. Experimentalist governance architectures of this type have become pervasively institutionalized in the EU across a wide and growing array of policy domains. They take a variety of organizational forms, including networked agencies, councils of national regulators, open methods of coordination, and operational cooperation among front-line officials, often in combination with one another (Sabel and Zeitlin 2008, 2010). Key questions to be addressed in this research project include how far, through what mechanisms, and with what results the revisable framework rules and experimentalist governance processes developed within the European internal market are or may be being extended to the wider world, together with the reciprocal interaction of these efforts with the multilateral trading regime and other emerging forms of global or transnational regulatory governance.


Sabel, Charles F., and Zeitlin, Jonathan, 2008: Learning from Difference: The New Architecture of Experimentalist Governance in the European Union, European Law Journal 14(3): 271-327.

Sabel, Charles F., and Zeitlin, Jonathan (eds), 2010: Experimentalist Governance in the European Union: Towards a New Architecture, Oxford: Oxford University Press.

The candidate must have a relevant MA degree (or equivalent) in political science or a related social science discipline (including law). Candidates should demonstrate interest in and knowledge of EU and/or global and transnational governance. Excellent oral and written command of English is essential. Experience with qualitative research methods is recommended.

Company sponsored PhD Program, Renault, France

Scholarship Summary: A Company sponsored PhD Program in Renault, France is available in the DELTA department. The thesis CIFRE is sponsored by Renault.

Proposal for PhD CIFRE Renault
The Department of Electronics and Automotive Advanced Technology (DELTA), Renault offers CIFRE entitled "Study of electrical insulation systems used in motor vehicles Electrical taking into account their specific environment, to ensure the desired life of the electric motor for future generation.


The current level of tension and its probable increase in the near future, the use of devices power electronics and the specific constraints they generate (as a voltage, steep edges, high frequencies, etc..), not to mention the operating conditions specific to the application (profiles mission thermal cycles, vibratory stress, etc) make the study of Electrical Insulation System (SIE) motors for electric vehicles (VE) a new field of investigation. Indeed, to ensure the duration Life sought, it is vital to understand the mechanisms of degradation of the dielectric insulation of cables, motor winding and power components. Among the risks, we must consider include:
- Breakdown between turns (same phase or different phases) and turns-frame;
- Failure of impedance of distribution lines accompanied by a sharp surge in response to reflections of Electromagnetic wave;
- Non-negligible parasitic capacitances and forehead steep causing a power surge at the entrance of the winding and intense use of the electrical insulation;
- Inhomogeneous distribution of tension in the coil.

The whole question is at what level of exposure to risk of failure is the application. By this I mean, the voltage level is it - given a few peculiar "Inverter - can trigger mechanisms of insulation breakdown, discharge partial (DP) and corona discharge? The answer to that question the whole strategy of choice and design of electrical systems that will be used. As part of this work, we try to answer this question.
