[New employee] Post-doc Markku-Juhani Saarinen
Markku-Juhani Saarinen is starting at the department today as an ERCIM post-doctoral fellow. He will be sitting in B-220.
[Open position] 2-year post-doc position in dependability of compound systems
A 2 year post-doc position in dependability of compound systems is available at the Departement of Telematics.
The digital services will to increasing degree be delivered by a number of interconnected ICT systems. These may be of different kinds, e.g., networks, storage centres, processor parks, and operated by different autonomous commercial parties having various roles in the digital ecosystem, e. g., network operators, cloud service providers, service integrators, etc. It is an objective that services shall be delivered with a well-defined dependability in this techno-commercial setting of autonomous systems of systems. In close cooperation with Telenor, the Department of Telematics runs a research project focusing on end to end differentiated service provision. Of particular interest to the department of telematics is differentiated availability across different network technologies and over multi-provider domains.
For this project, we seek a PhD-holder with a good insight in dependability of ICT systems and research interest in modelling, quantitative evaluation, simulation, optimization and/or measurements/monitoring of such compound systems. Applications from PhD candidates graduating Q1 2014 are also accepted.
Application deadline: March 15 2014
