The research group of Prof. Kay Roemer at the Institute for Computer Engineering of University of Luebeck, Germany, is looking for two highly qualified and motivated PhD students to conduct research in Wireless Sensor Networks and the Internet of Things.
The candidates are expected to pursue their PhD in the context of two European research projects. The projects are devoted to Wireless Sensor Networks and the Internet of Things. Position A is concerned with novel programming paradigms for such systems, while position B is concerned with novel services and semantics for such systems.
We are glad to announce a PhD position at the University of Trento, Italy, for doing research in WSN within the D3S group. D3S is a cross-institution group of researchers from both the university and the nearby FBK-IRST research centre, whose projects are characterised by theoretical backing and practical applicability.
Examples of projects currently ongoing include TRITon, a project on road tunnel monitoring using WSNs, and ACube, a project where a pervasive computing environment equipped with audio, video, and other types of sensors provide support for elders and people with disabilities. New PhD students are invited to participate in ongoing projects to gain experience and insight into real systems, and to identify novel, challenging problems whose solutions break new ground.
Complete info about the call, the University, the city and previous research projects from this group are available here.
Applications deadline 20 April 2010
The CISTER/IPP-HURRAY Research Unit has a PhD call open to work in the area of Sensor Networks, Cyber Physical Systems, Multicore Systems, Adaptive RT Systems, and RT Software.
The candidates should have a Bachelor, Licenciate, or MSc degree in Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering or related fields. GRE and TOEFL are welcome. Fluency in written and spoken English is required. Candidates holding a Bachelor/Licenciate degree with a GPA (Grade Point Average) greater or equal to 75% are preferred.
The CISTER Research Unit focuses its activity in the analysis, design and implementation of real-time and embedded computing systems. The unit was created in 1997, and has since grown to become one of the leading European research groups in the area of real-time and embedded computing systems. CISTER is not only an internationally recognized group but also a literally international group, with people hailing from all continents bar Antarctica.
