A postdoc position is available at the ReMI institute (https://remi-institute.com/) and the École de Technologie Supérieure (ÉTS https://www.etsmtl.ca/en/) in Montréal, Canada.
Context: The unprecedented expansion of Cloud Computing services and Internet of things (IoT) combined with the recent advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Big Data analytics techniques is opening the door for new breeds of intelligent services and applications. Such services and applications require a large computing capacity to perform well. Unfortunately, in dynamic and mobile environments, characterized by intermittent connectivity, it becomes challenging to run such services and applications with a guaranteed performance, especially when it is not possible to rely on any fixed infrastructure giving access to cloud platforms with powerful servers.
In this project, we consider a Mobile Ad hoc Cloud (MAdoC), a dynamic cloud made of interconnected IoT and mobile devices with no dependence on a fixed infrastructure. MAdoC leverages recent technological advances in Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Big Data analytics, and Machine-Learning techniques to allow processing intensive applications.
Objective: The postdoc will conduct research and help supervise students working on the design and development of efficient algorithms and protocols operating in heterogeneous MAdoCs.
Collaborations and Scholarship
The postdoc will be working with Pr. Diala Naboulsi and Pr. Georges Kaddoum. The project will be conducted in close collaboration with the industrial partner Ultra – Intelligence and Communications (https://www.ultra.group/gb/our-business-units/intelligence-communications/).
Qualifications and Requirements
The position requires:
- A PhD degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering or a related discipline
- Excellent writing, communication and presentation skills in English
- Solid knowledge in: i) networking, ii) machine learning and/or optimization
