PhD vacancy in scheduling and control algorithms for future networks
IDLab is a research group of Ghent University, as well as a core research group of imec. IDLab performs fundamental and applied research on data science and internet technology and counts over 300 researchers. IDLab is also part of imec, the world-leading research and innovation hub in nanoelectronics and digital technologies. The combination of our widely acclaimed leadership in microchip technology and profound software and ICT expertise is what makes us unique.
The NetModel team within IDLab where this vacancy is offered, consists of engineers and scientists who are building models for the future Internet. NetModel investigates network control mechanisms, network optimization and performance-related aspects of networks. The group has a strong track record in the domains of optical networks, network performance optimization, and sofware-defined networking.
We imagine a future world of connected autonomously driving vehicles, AR/VR devices, smart clothing, cooperative robots in industry, or drones delivering packages at your doorstep. These applications are expected to be possible from novel techniques in wireless networking resulting into an increased spectrum, but also from the deep integration of the network with all types of computing power in the cloud and at the edge of the network.
While all of this is possible in theory, many network control problems need to be solved under the hoods to make this possible: the topology consisting of all these different network segments must be discovered, routes must be found, and guarantees must be provided such that network communication can happen within (or less than) milliseconds. While already challenging on its own, this all must happen in a continuously changing environment, where people and devices move all the time.
This gives rise to a wide number of optimization-related challenges in a highly distributed context. How to detect and utilize the best routes, highest capacity with lowest (and guaranteed) latencies between all those devices, and how to perform reservations within tight time boundaries.
The research group is involved in several national and European research projects focusing on future networks and their ability to provide novel services on demand at high performance with strong guarantees.
To face the different research challenges in this domain, we are looking for a researcher who is able to combine modelling, algorithmic and software skills needed to advance this field.
This PhD position is available immediately and is open until the vacancy is filled. The position is not open for post-docs.
