PhD Scholarship in Edge Computing and Wireless Networking

KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden has an opening PhD position in information science. The funding allows successful candidate to work for two years. Applicants should apply before January 18, 2019.

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe's leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden's largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

We are looking for highly motivated doctoral students that will join our efforts in devising future approaches for edge computing and wireless networking. The research direction associated with these positions generally considers novel real-time applications with closed-loop characteristics, where highly responsive edge computing infrastructures are of interest. In this context, the doctoral students will conduct theoretical and experimental research with respect to devising and optimizing novel algorithms, architectures and protocols. While theoretical insights are of interest, in this effort we mainly strive for experimental results. Apart from the core topics edge computing and wireless networking, the successful candidates will also get in touch with different applications like closed-loop control, as well as human-in-the-loop applications like augmented reality.

The doctoral students will be hosted by the department of Information Science and Engineering. The department consists of 8 faculty members, researchers and doctoral students who contribute to a high professional standard of intensive work and quality results, as well as to a friendly and open environment. The staff has a multicultural background and the working language is English. The department is internationally well established, has many research collaborations with excellent partners worldwide, and is involved in several European and national projects. The excellent research environment at the department promotes creativity and allows a lot of flexibility so that people can work in a way that fits best to them. The work commitment is very high and the cooperative setting creates a positive sense of belonging.

In order to succeed as an doctoral student at KTH you need to be goal-oriented and persevering in your work.

The applicant should have a degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or Electrical Engineering, and a strong background in one or multiple fields: wireless networking, edge computing, operating systems, algorithm design, optimization, performance modeling, prototyping, experimental research.

Only those who are or have been admitted to third-cycle studies may be employed as a doctoral student. The term of the initial contract may not exceed one year and may thereafter be extended. Doctoral students may engage in teaching, research, and administration corresponding to a maximum of 20 % of a full-time position.

Apply for the position and admission through KTH’s recruitment system. It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure that the application is complete in accordance with the instructions in the advertisement.

Applications must be received at the last closing date at midnight, CET/CEST (Central European Time/entral European Summer Time).
