Qualification Details

The applicant is required to have a PhD degree in Communication Systems, Communication Networks, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or similar.

The applicant must have completed the degree no more than three years before the end of the application period.

Specific requirement for the position include communication theory or data communications.

The applicant should be fluent in English, both written and spoken.   

Decisive importance is attached to personal suitability. We value the qualities that an even distribution of age and gender, as well as ethnic and cultural diversity, can contribute to the organisation.

Merit

Qualifications that are considered to be a merit include knowledge in any of the areas information security, physical layer security, network security, probability theory, queuing theory, system-of-systems engineering, game theory, functional safety and/or cognitive networks.

Responsibilities/Job Description

This postdoc will focus either on connecting cyber-physical systems and embedded systems-of-systems in a secure and safe way, such that the strict timing requirements of the embedded application can be fulfilled also in a setting with intermittent connectivity between subsystems and transient communication errors. In this case, example applications include collaborative vehicles or robots as well as constrained areas requiring high situation awareness. The connectivity should be wireless, secure, safety informed and technology neutral, i.e., targeting both centralized and decentralized networks.

The other focus area of interest is the coverage of real-time functions deployed in large-area networks, as envisioned in digitalization, Industrial IoT, and Industry 4.0. The aim is to overcome the current limitations with either dedicated networks for real-time traffic, or islands of networks, with limited reach and coverage, that have different quality of service requirements, and where boundary crossing has severe impact on end-to-end performance. Having both wired and wireless communication in such networks, with different quality of service mechanisms further push for novel security solutions, that advance both state-of-art and state-of-practice.

The candidate will have the opportunity to cooperate with PhD students, senior researchers and several strategic industrial partners from robotics, process automation and the vehicular industry, besides the members of the research group.

The position is a temporary employment of 2 years.
