Responsibilities/Job Description

Modern networked systems are some of the most complex things ever created, composed of vast intertwinings of systems and protocols distributed over wide areas. Unfortunately, the complexity of these systems is increasingly exceeding the ability of humans to effectively reason about and administer them. In this PhD project, we will explore the use of computer-assisted intelligence to build self-managing networked systems. This project will be executed at TU Delft, within the lab of Fernando Kuipers (, but will be performed in collaboration with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA

About the Department

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) brings together three disciplines - electrical engineering, mathematics and computer science. Combined, they reinforce each other and are the driving force behind the technology we use in our daily lives. Technology such as the electricity grid, which our faculty is helping to make future-proof. We are also working on a world in which humans and computers reinforce each other. We are mapping out disease processes using single cell data, and using mathematics to simulate gigantic ash plumes after a volcanic eruption. There is plenty of room here for ground-breaking research. We educate innovative engineers and have excellent labs and facilities that underline our strong international position. In total, more than 1,100 employees and 4,000 students work and study in this innovative environment.
