Two PhD positions in Intelligent connect-compute access networks
Opportunistic Architectures Lab
Deadline for receipt of applications: 10 March 2021, 14:00h Europe/Madrid Time
The Opportunistic Architectures Lab invites applications for PhD Student positions in the area of design and performance evaluation of wireless access networks with complex and intelligent connect-compute systems.
The work will involve both modelling and experimental research on protocols, resource management and measurement algorithms meant to accelerate network performance by running on configurable hardware at the edge of cellular networks and in the radio access network.
In such framework, network, compute and storage resources need to be controlled and configured dynamically, with an operational complexity that requires the introduction of heuristics and artificial-intelligence-based approaches.
High proficiency in programming (e.g., C/C++, Python, Matlab, etc.); Excellent background on machine learning and/or queuing theory.
Excellent background on network protocols and wireless networking; Excellent verbal and written English skills.
