PhD Position in "Internet of Things and Big Data" at Chalmers

PhD Position in "Internet of Things and Big Data" at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden

Application deadline: April 15, 2014


As PhD student you will join the Networks and Systems division and work at the intersection of Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data Analysis. The Internet of Things enables an increasing connectivity of everyday devices and objects. These connected devices provide us with new insights into our daily life and we rely on Big Data Analysis to extract these insights. The overall aim of this PhD position is to develop new mechanisms and applications for the Internet of Things and combine these with Big Data Analysis to enable, for example, sustainable living in future, smart cities. A special focus shall be put on Internet of Things at metropolitan-scale, information security and privacy, near real-time data-stream analysis and energy-efficient networks.

Your major responsibility as a PhD student is to pursue your own doctoral studies. You are expected to develop your own scientific concepts and communicate the results of your research verbally and in writing. The position generally also includes teaching on Chalmers' undergraduate level or performing other duties corresponding to 20 per cent of working hours.

To qualify as a PhD student, you must have a master's level degree corresponding to at least 240 higher education credits in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or in a related discipline. As for all PhD studies, a genuine interest and curiosity in the subject matter and excellent analytical and communication skills, both oral and written, are needed.

The ideal candidate for the position has a strong background in distributed and networked systems. Further background in cyber physical systems, information security, or data science is helpful. You may apply even if you have not completed your degree, but expect to do so before the position starts. Knowledge of Swedish is not a prerequisite for applying since English is our working language for research, and we publish internationally. Both Swedish and English are used in undergraduate courses. Our researchers and PhD students at the department come from more than 30 different countries.

Salary for the position is as specified in Chalmers' general agreement for PhD student positions. Currently the starting salary is 26,250SEK per month before tax. The position is limited to a maximum of five years. The position is intended to start in summer 2014, but a different start could also be arranged.

Gothenburg is often referred to as the "heart of Scandinavia". The video below gives an impression what it's like to live and study in Gothenburg: http://youtu.be/0WrlGlSyS1c
