Postdoctoral position – Secure and Energy-Neutral Signal Processing and Control over Networks
Sort on published: 2018-03-15
Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our mission is to pursue top-quality research and education and to interact constructively with society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has 42,000 students, 7,000 employees and a turnover of SEK 6.7 billion.
At the Signals and Systems division, Department of Engineering Sciences, The Angstrom Laboratory. The position is for two years starting 2018-05-01 or as soon as possible thereafter.
Duties: To conduct original research in the area of signal- and information processing and control over wireless sensor networks, in particular, (i) theoretical analysis of secure and resilient networked estimation and control subject to malicious attacks such as denial of service, data integrity and eavesdropping attacks, (ii) game theoretic algorithms for strategic system design, and (iii) integration of energy harvesting based sensor networks in estimation and control of dynamical systems. Relevant areas also include distributed and decentralized estimation- and control algorithm design, e.g., with respect to wireless control applications.
Experience of theoretical and experimental work within the field is important, as is experience of extensive programming in MATLAB and preferably also in LabVIEW. The duties include theoretical analysis, algorithm design and implementation via software based simulations, and documentation in the form of technical papers and reports. Some teaching in the undergraduate and/or graduate education and supervision of PhD students may be included in the position not exceeding 20%.
Qualifications required: To qualify for an employment as a post-doctor, the applicants must hold a PhD degree or a foreign qualification deemed equivalent to a PhD and the PhD degree must have been obtained no more than three years prior to the application date; however, for example, periods of sick leave or parental leave are deducted from the three-year period.
For this position it is required to have PhD in Automatic Control, Signal Processing or Wireless Communications with applications to networked systems or a closely related subject with high quality publications in the related area of signal processing, control and wireless communications. Particular emphasis will be placed on a strong mathematical background (including stochastic control and optimization theory, game theory (desirable), and systems and control theory), and documented research experience in signal and information processing/control for/via wireless sensor networks.
For further information about the position, please contact Professor Subhrakanti Dey (Subhrakanti.Dey@signal.uu.se) or Prof Anders Ahlen (email@example.com). Information about the division of Signals and Systems can be found at www.signal.uu.se.
