The Department of Information and Communications Engineering is offering several interesting Research Assistant positions in renewing and developing courses during the summer of 2023. The starting date will be around June 2023 or as mutually agreed. The open Research Assistant positions for the summer are the following:

Renewing the Laboratory Course in Internet Technologies (1-2 positions)
Student laboratory at Dice provides students with an opportunity to get their hands dirty with real networking hardware. To get the best learning opportunities for our students, we both develop new tasks and improve existing ones. We would like you to have a good knowledge of networking technology (at least courses ELEC-E7310, ELEC-C7240 or equivalent knowledge). You should be able to work with real and virtual devices (routers, other network devices, Linux, FreeBSD, Windows) and produce good documentation. Previous experience of measurements (e.g., from laboratory courses ELEC-E7330) is also valued highly.

This is a great opportunity to show your skills and extend your knowledge in the area of networking!

Developing Internet Traffic Measurement and Analysis Course (1 position)

Internet Traffic Measurement and Analysis course (ELEC-E7130) is one of the first courses where students are handed large, real-world size volumes of data (hundreds of gigabytes) to be worked on. Based on the course feedback, there has been a steep learning curve to many without data processing background to learn tools suitable for the purpose.

Your task is to review course assignments, develop and/or find introductory material and study different tools (e.g. python, R), including cloud-based big data platforms that could be helpful for students. One topic to explore would be introduction screencasts for many tools used in the course as many have their first experience from those.

Ideally, the applicant has taken the course, has experience on big data analysis, knows his/her way around Linux and can create clear instructive texts, videos and other material. Most importantly can think outside of existing box.

Contact person for further questions for both positions: Laboratory Manager Markus Peuhkuri (
