[Open position] Ph.D. research fellowship within the area of application development for IoT systems

A Ph.D. research fellowship within the area of application development for Internet of Things (IoT) systems is available at the Department of Telematics.

IoT applications are complicated. They combine the need of correct functionality with many other requirements. For instance, applications must use computing resources and the network efficiently, but at the same time be secure and protect the privacy of users. This requires a high level of expertise from developers, in several areas, and hinders the creation of such systems in a cost-effective way. Therefore, we need techniques to make the development of such applications easier.
After a study of the problem domain and ongoing research, the research under this grant shall identify and advance viable techniques or strategies for developing applications in IoT systems. This includes formal techniques, model-driven approaches like code generation, and other analytical methods that can assist developers.

A master's degree or equivalent in computer science, telematics, information technology or an equivalent field, with excellent results is required. The position is also open for master’s students that will graduate within 01.07.2015.

Application deadline: February 15 2014

Contact: Associate Professor Frank A. Kraemer

[Open position] 2-year post-doc position in robust and efficient networking in dynamic heterogenous environments

A 2-year post-doc position in  robust and efficient networking in dynamic heterogenous environments is available at the Departement of Telematics.

A particular focus is on designing robust and cost-efficient network architectures and approaches to support communication between heterogeneous nodes in coastal and arctic maritime operations and surveillance (CAMOS) sensor networks for the IME Lighthouse project CAMOS. A possible application scenario is communication and networking for deep sea mining. The design should take into consideration the special characteristics of sensor networks, such as heterogeneous nodes (e.g. acoustic underwater, terrestrial radio, satellite, and UAV) and intermittent communication. The architectures and approaches should also incorporate a management framework that enables coordination and optimization of the network in order to fulfill the desired performance criteria, e.g. delay, reliability and network energy efficiency. In addition, the candidate is expected to initiate the building of a networking framework and demonstration platform for CAMOS.

For this project, we seek a highly motivated and qualified individual with a strong publication record, holding a Ph.D. degree in communication networks or related fields by the time of appointment.

Application deadline: December 15 2014
