The Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering, at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) has one Postdoctoral Research vacancy at the Department of Electronic Systems (IES). The postdoctoral position is for two (2) years.
In Internet-of-things (IoT), as sensing and estimation becomes more distributed, sensors/estimators will need to communicate with each other and other entities in the network to obtain an accurate picture of the system being observed. In a distributed IoT/wireless sensor network, the sensor nodes share their observations with the neighboring nodes and cooperate to enhance the accuracy of the inference. As the number of sensors increases, the amount of data that will be stored, processed and communicated increases dramatically so that system throughput and latency will not be adequate to ensure reliable and secure operation. In this project we are particularly interested in the development of new methods and algorithms that enable frugal usage of energy by the sensors, that can effectively convert the data collected by myriads of sensors into actionable intelligence, and that are robust and resilient to malfunctioning sensors or malicious disturbance.
The candidate will conduct research together with personnel in the group of Prof. Stefan Werner, as well as researchers connected to the NTNU Internet-of-things lab. Preference will be given to candidates who can work independently and have a strong potential to build competence and guide students within the following research areas:
We search for candidates with keen interests in these tasks, and those with the best qualifications will be invited for an interview.
The candidate is expected to be able to work independently, have a solid mathematical background and a PhD in statistical signal processing, applied mathematics, statistics or machine learning, wireless sensor networks, electrical engineering, or related field. Good command in English language (spoken and written) is a prerequisite. An eligible candidate should have submitted the PhD thesis for assessment by the application deadline.
