Germany : PhD Position in Wireless Sensor Networks
Description: For a research project funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), a PhD position in Wireless Sensor Networks is available at the Chair of Computer Networks, Technische UniversitÃ¤t Dresden (http://wwwpub.zih.tu-dresden.de/~dargie/). The position is available 50% of the full working time â€“ the corresponding salary is around 26, 000 Euro per year, tax included. The main goal of the research is to develop a medium access control protocol that supports the free movements of some of the nodes. The throughput of the mobile nodes is expected to be high (5 to 15 Kbps per node) and MAC protocol should aim to achieve low latency. These types of nodes have relevance for healthcare applications, independent living, animal monitoring, etc. The PhD thesis will focus on developing stochastic models (adaptive filters) for predicting (estimating) the link quality deterioration rate of communicating nodes and for supporting seamless handover. The successful candidate will build on exis!
ting models and already available code written in C. Sound knowledge of C programming language and computer networks as well as openness to catch-up with stochastic processes and probability theory is highly expected.
On our turn, we shall offer you fully equipped lab with state of the art measurement infrastructure and wireless sensor networks. The PhD research is purely on practical implementation, test, measurement, and analysis. Solid support for writing scientific articles and for publishing them in well-established journals and conferences will be given.
If you are comfortable with your programing skill and are willing to work hard, send your CV and your grade report to: email@example.com. The position will be available as soon as possible. The initial contract is for 24 months.
