Hi all, 
 
see below the description of an open position we have at UCL. Feel free to get in touch if you need further info or any clarification - and please forward to colleagues working in the area. 
 
Best regards, 
Yiannis. 
 
 
Description 
 
Grade 7 
Hours: Full Time 
Salary (inclusive of London allowance) £35,328 - £42,701 per annum 
Closing Date : 9 Nov 2018 
 
Duties and Responsibilities 
 
As part of our work within a number of EPSRC- and EU funded projects, the UCL Electronic & Electrical Engineering (EEE) Communications & Information Systems Group invites applications for two postdoctoral research positions in Networked Systems. 
 
Cloud computing has contributed much to the development of the Internet over the past twenty years or so. However, new applications in the area of IoT, but not only, are pushing the limits of cloud computing to the point where computing at far-away data-centres cannot cope with application requirements. Emerging trends in computing, communications and networking move towards distributed cloud computing and mobile edge- or fog-computing. According to these trends, computation moves closer to the edge of the network (hence from cloud to fog) in distributed computation spots to serve newly emerging applications with strict response deadlines. The challenges pertaining to this move defy some of the most fundamental operations taking place in the Internet infrastructure today. At the same time, new and emerging technologies, such as blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) can help facilitate a distributed and decentralised Internet Governance model. In this emerging field of research, several open problems are seeking a solution, e.g., scalability of blockchain technology as well as novel consensus algorithms and network/token economics. 
 
Our current projects focus on the combination of the above topics, or more in particular, the integration of blockchain / DLT to solve networking issues at the edge of the mobile part of the network. We aim to design and develop a communication and information infrastructure for both mobile, opportunistic communications environments, but also for fixed, edge-fog-computing networks covering both pure networking aspects, but also aspects related to security, privacy and (network and token) economics of future networks. 
 
Some recent research findings of our group can be found here: https://www.ee.ucl.ac.uk/~ipsaras/ddec.html 
 
We are looking for two talented and experienced postdoctoral researchers to join our team and help us fulfil the projects’ goals, producing quality research, design, development and implementation work and publishing high quality research papers. 
 
The successful candidates will work within an established research team in the Communications and Information Systems Group led by Dr Ioannis Psaras. 
 
The positions are for 1 year in the first instance, starting as soon as possible (ideally early 2019). Further funding to support the posts for another two years may be available. 
 
Key Requirements 
Applicants are required to have a PhD (or be about to submit) in Computer Science, Electronic Engineering or a related field. 
 
They also need to have knowledge and / or hands on experience in one or more of the following areas: 
 
+ Edge-/fog-computing; 
+ Distributed and decentralised cloud infrastructures and applications; 
+ Internet of Things (IoT); 
+ Information-Centric Networking (ICN); 
+ Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT); 
+ Security and Privacy 
+ Network Economics, Token or Crypto-Economics 
+ Opportunistic networks and device-to-device communications; 
+ Resource management, routing and congestion control. 
+ Algorithm design skills are essential as is a good publication record in the field. 
 
If the successful candidate has not yet been awarded their PhD, appointment will be made as a Research Assistant. Payment at Grade 7 will be backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis including corrections, once the PhD has been awarded. Research Assistant: Grade 6, point 24-26. Salary range £30,922 to £32,607 (inc. London Allowance of £3,092 per annum).
