           Post-doctoral Fellow in Sensor Networks
                        ETH Zurich

The research group on Computer Engineering at ETH Zurich (Swiss
Federal Institute of Technology) has an opening for a
post-doctoral fellow the field of sensor networks.


We have a long and successful history in sensor network research
and we are involved in several large-scale interdisciplinary
projects in environmental sensing. Our research combines
theoretical investigations with serious applications. Wireless
sensor networks are in operation at several field sites in high
alpine regions (permafrost research and early warning) as well as
cities (air pollution). In terms of basic research, our focus has
been on areas like synchronization, highly dependable wireless
protocols, network tomography, testing, formal verification
methodologies, formal methods, and energy harvesting.


The Computer Engineering and Networks Laboratory offers a creative
international environment, a possibility to conduct highly
competitive research on a global scale and to be involved in
teaching. The main responsibility of the position is to conduct
successful research in the field of sensor networks. There are
plenty of opportunities to cooperate with highly recognized
national and international partners. In addition, active
participation in research projects and leading a group of
highly motivated Ph.D. students is expected.


The candidate must hold a Ph.D. degree with top performance in a
field that is closely related to sensor networks. He or she should
have a track record in conducting original highly competitive
scientific research and publishing the results in top conferences
and scientific journals. Maturity, self-motivation and the ability
to work both independently and as a team player in local and
international research teams are expected. Interest in
interdisciplinary collaboration with environmental sciences as
well as outdoor proficiency is advantageous. German language
skills are not required, English is mandatory.


Deadline for application is the 31st of May 2014. Applications
should be sent by email to (Lothar Thiele). They
must contain a statement of interest, a CV, the names of two
references and additional documents, in particular copies of
degree certificates and the associated scores.
