Postdoctoral Fellow in Computer Networking and Internet Technologies

Simula Research Laboratory AS

Martin Linges vei 17
Pb. 134

Simula Research Laboratory AS is a publicly owned research institute located outside Oslo, Norway. We are a multi-cultural organization, employing about 140 individuals from 25 countries. Simula conducts ICT research in the fields of communication technology, scientific computing and software engineering, with the main objective of generating new understanding and creating vital knowledge about fundamental scientific challenges that are of genuine value to society. This is achieved through high quality research, education of graduate students, industry collaboration, technology transfer and commercialization. Simula actively supports, and creates the conditions necessary for the establishment of businesses based on the research it conducts.

Postdoctoral Fellow (Computer/Internet)

Call for Postdoctoral Fellow in Computer Networking and Internet Technologies.

Project Description:
The Media Department of the Centre for Resilient Networks and Applications (CRNA) at Simula Research Laboratory has an opening for one full-time Postdoctoral Research Fellow, in the field of Computer Networking and Internet Technologies. The position is available for three years, starting from March 1st, 2015.

The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will closely interact with the CRNA teams working on low-latency networking for Internet applications, and on mobile broadband networks. The official working language in the Centre, and at Simula, is English.

This position is connected to the EU-funded research project NEAT (A New, Evolutive API and Transport Layer for the Internet), starting in March 1st, 2015. The NEAT project, coordinated by Simula, will be carried out by a consortium of top industry players (Celerway, Cisco, EMC, Mozilla) and academic centres (Fachhochschule Münster, Karlstad University, University of Aberdeen, University of Oslo).

Research in the NEAT project will tackle the problem of the ossification of the Internet protocol stack. The long-term goal of NEAT is to bring an architectural change to the Internet, by redesigning the way in which Internet applications interact with the network. This will be achieved by allowing network services offered to applications, such as reliability, low-delay communication or security, to be dynamically tailored on a best-effort basis, considering application demands, current network conditions, hardware capabilities or local policies; also, by supporting the integration of new network functionality in an evolutionary fashion, without applications having to be rewritten.

The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will be part of a project team that will work on designing, developing and testing novel transport-layer systems and mechanisms, as well as service-oriented APIs for Internet applications. The project will also contribute to standardisation efforts such as the newly-chartered TAPS working group of the IETF. Research activities will be done in close collaboration with project partners, and will require a practical, hands-on approach to build real-world prototypes.

As a Post-doctoral fellow, the candidate is expected to collaborate with PhD students, and to supervise and collaborate with Master students. We provide the opportunity, as well as support, to apply for research funding or commercialisation funding, which could help establish follow-up projects. There are no requirements for teaching duties.

Your Profile:
We are looking for outstanding candidates with:
A PhD degree (or very near completion of their PhD) on Computer Science or a related discipline.
A strong track record of scientific publications.
Extensive knowledge of data communication technologies. In particular, in-depth knowledge of Internet transport protocols and standards is mandatory.
Strong programming skills and proven experience with network programming. Kernel programming skills will be highly regarded. The main platform of development will be Linux, but knowledge of other operating systems, e.g., FreeBSD, is also beneficial.
The ability to both collaborate closely with others, and work independently on challenging problems.
Excellent communication skills in English, both written and verbal, due to the international and distributed nature of the project.

Simula Offers:
Excellent opportunities for doing high-quality research, as part of a highly competent and motivated team of international researchers.
Competitive salaries.
Generous support for travels and equipment.
Good office facilities located close to the Oslo fjord and a 10-minute drive from the centre of Oslo.
Professional courses and workshops led by international experts on topics such as Communication of Scientific Research, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and Writing Effective Research Proposals.

Simula strives to achieve a good balance between male and female employees, and women are particularly encouraged to apply. Also, Simula maintains an open, international and diverse work environment, and seeks applications from outstanding scientists regardless of their national origin or citizenship.
