Software Engineer in Embedded and Wireless Systems at Chalmers University, Sweden

Application deadline: 2011-12-10

Software Engineer in Embedded and Wireless Systems

Information about the research group
The Distributed Computing and Systems research group conducts research with high-impact internationally on the design and analysis of distributed algorithms and systems, fault tolerance (with emphasis on self-stabilization and game theory), runtime systems, and parallel algorithms and data structures for highly parallel, heterogeneous, many-core systems. The group is running a set of national and international projects in these areas.

Job description
The research focuses on vehicular systems and networks with an emphasis on their algorithms and programming. The project’s context is on the algorithmic design of communication protocols for vehicular networks (VANETs), replication schemes for VANETs, algorithmic support for vehicle cooperation and reliable distributed assessment of global system state. This work involves both the system algorithmic design and proof of concept implementation.

Applicants shall have a Master’s Degree or corresponding (Sw. civilingenj├Ârsexamen) in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or in a related discipline. A genuine interest and curiosity in the subject matter and excellent analytical and communication skills, orally as well as literally, are needed. Further, since the research work involves developing and testing analytical techniques, first class programming skills are imperative. A successful candidate should have a profound interest in distributed algorithms and programming for wireless communication systems.

It will be very useful if your application includes parts of your own work, such as theses and articles that you have authored or co-authored. Please notice also that it is highly recommended that you include or e-mail letters of recommendation; we typically get a large number of applications, and it is not feasible for us to request individual letters.

You may apply even though you might not have completed your degree yet.

Application procedure
The application should be marked with Ref 20110131 and be attached as two pdf-files, as below:
