We wish to appoint a Research Associate to work on the EPSRC-funded project “Software Defined Cognitive Networking (SDCN)”. The SDCN project aims at enhancing online video distribution, which takes the vast majority of internet traffic. We seek to develop new context-aware network models to improve the user experience and network efficiency using software-defined networks.
We invite applications from enthusiastic individuals with experience in relevant aspects of communication networks. The ideal candidate will be a proficient programmer in languages appropriate for scientific computing (e.g. Python, Java), have knowledge of statistical modelling. The role will require you to engage with external partners and stakeholders, and therefore you should possess excellent communication skills with evidence of working effectively as an individual and within a team. You will have strong project management skills and have an ability to write up research for peer-reviewed conferences and journals.
You will work at the University of Northampton’s new Waterside Campus. A dedicated lab at the university’s Avenue Campus will also accommodate research and experimentation activities. The University promotes continuing professional development (CPD) and provides access to development for staff at all levels.
The candidate should possess a PhD in computer science or closely related field. This is a fixed term appointment of 12 months.
