I am actively recruiting motivated PhD students! I have a number of active and potential projects on mobile sensing, mobile data analysis, and data for development, and I am looking for people to work with on these. The University of Ljubljana, Slovenia is one of the top research universities in the region, offers a range of teaching and research fellowships and is located in one of the most beautiful parts of Europe. Please email me (Veljko.Pejovic [at] if you want to chat about doctoral study topics. To find out more details about PhD studies in Ljubljana, please read the following info sheet.

I am also open to discuss potential postdoctoral opportunities at FRI funded through fellowships such as EU Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions.
