[Open position] 2-year post-doc position within dependability of compound systems

A two year post-doc position within dependability of compound systems is available at the Departement of Telematics.

The digital services will to an increasing degree be delivered by a number of interconnected ICT systems. These may be of different kinds, e.g., networks, storage centers, processor parks, and operated by different autonomous commercial parties having various roles in the digital ecosystem, e. g., network operators, cloud service providers, service integrators, etc. It is an objective that services shall be delivered with a well-defined dependability in this techno-commercial setting of autonomous systems of systems. In close cooperation with Telenor, we run a research project focusing on these problems in a cloud service provisioning.

For this project, we seek a PhD-holder with a good insight in dependability of ICT systems and research interest in modeling, quantitative evaluation, simulation, optimization and/or measurements/monitoring of such compound systems. Applications from PhD candidates graduating Q1 2013 are also accepted.

Application deadline: December 15 2012
