Internet of Things Service Management Postgraduate Research Scholarship

Applicants are invited to apply for a PhD scholarship at The University of Sydney. The funds for this position are available for three years. Candidates are welcome before November 15, 2018.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is an emerging and promising area that proposes to turn every tangible entity (i.e., thing) into a node on the Internet. The ubiquity of mobile devices such as smartphones has elicited the emergence of the important domain of crowdsourced sensor data. This poses key challenges on storing, processing and managing continuous streams of IoT and crowdsourced sensed data. In this project, the primary focus is to harness the service paradigm as a key mechanism to manage IoT and sensor cloud services. It should provide novel smart services which benefit enterprises, industries, and our society. The candidates are expected to undertake a wide spectrum of research issues in the context of IoT and sensor cloud service management such as spatio-temporal composition, incentive models for crowdsourced services and IoT service mining for smart cities.

Applicants must have an unconditional offer of admission for full-time studies in a PhD within the School of Information Technologies at the University of Sydney, and be willing to undertake research in the field of big data service management. Applicants must also hold an Honours degree (First Class or Second Class upper) or a Master’s degree in a related field with a substantial research component and have a strong background in one or more Programming languages (e.g. C++, Java, Python and others) and algorithms. The successful applicant will be awarded the Scholarship on the basis of: feedback from two academic referees, and a personal statement which demonstrates their interest in internet things management. The successful applicant will be awarded the Scholarship by the nomination of the relevant research supervisor in the School of Information Technologies.

The Scholarship will provide an annual stipend allowance of $30,000 per annum (fixed rate) for up to three years, subject to satisfactory academic performance. The recipient may apply for an extension of up to 6 months. Academic course fees and the Student Services Amenities fee are also provided for a successful international applicant, for the same duration as the stipend allowance. No other amount is payable. Progression is subject to passing the annual progress review.
