This website presents information about IoC as of 31 December 2016 and is no longer updated.
The Institute of Cybernetics offers a conducive environment for PhD studies. Needless to say, a PhD study really means work.
IoC employs a couple of dozen PhD students. Every year, 3..5 fresh doctors defend their degrees.

- Engineering physics (YAFD06)
- Chemistry and gene technology (YALD02) (in relation to systems biology)
- Civil and environmental engineering (EAED02) (in relation to wave and coastal engineering)
- Information and communication technology (IAQD02)
Possible supervisors and topics:
|Mechanics||Jaan Kalda, Arkadi Berezovski, Jüri Engelbrecht, Heiko Herrmann, Andrus Salupere|
|Photoelasticity||Johan Anton, Pearu Peterson|
|Wave and coastal engineering||Tarmo Soomere, Tomas Torsvik|
|Systems biology||Marko Vendelin, Rikke Birkedal|
|Control systems||Ülle Kotta, Maris Tõnso|
|Phonetics and speech technology||Einar Meister|

In principle, we would like to offer every PhD student of ours a full-time position for work on the thesis within a research project in the mode of exclusive dedication. But this presumes that circumstances coincide nicely: that a matching prospective PhD student and adequately funded research project emerge simultaneously enough.
