PhD student position
DERI Institute
Galway, Ireland
Sensor Middleware Unit

The Sensor Middleware Unit

The advent of sensor technologies and the Semantic Web provide the
unique opportunity to unify the real and the virtual worlds. It
enables the building of very large infrastructures which for the first
time facilitate the information-driven real-time integration of the
physical world and computers on a global scale. Flexible middleware
technology which abstracts from heterogeneous sensor network
technologies to higher-level functionalities to enable interconnected
sensor networks and processing of sensor data (Sensor Internet) is a
cornerstone of enabling Semantic Reality. The sheer size and dynamic
of this system poses quite novel and unique challenges, which we plan
to investigate in the following years.

We are looking for a PhD student to work in the area of Sensor Data
Management, in particular we want to address the challenges of
building and maintaining a sensor data repository which is
distributed, heterogenous, and constantly updated, and how to
efficiently make the data accessible.


- Completed degree in computer science, applied mathematics, or
similar, with outstanding performance (Master, or equivalent)
- Experience with implementation work in C++ or Java
- Personal initiative, creativity and ability to effectively work in a team
- Good level of written and spoken English

Basic knowledge of distributed algorithms and database systems, e.g.,
from corresponding university classes, is welcome, but not mandatory.

Candidates are requested to submit a cover letter, an academic
curriculum vitae, and the names of 3 references to hr.ie@deri.org
quoting "Sensor Data Management" in the subject of the mail.

Applications from non-native English speakers should also include
copies of their GRE, TOEFL, CPE or similar scores if available.

The PhD fellowship is funded by Science Foundation Ireland and offers
for the successful candidate a generous annual stipend, course fees
and conference travel when presenting.
