  • Contrato predoctoral en la Universidad de Murcia (Spain). Received: 05/11/2021, deadline: 11/11/2021.

PhD position
The Department of Electromagnetism and Electronics at the University of Murcia, Spain, opens a call for applications for a PhD contract (4 years), financed by the Ministry of Science, in the frame of the R+D project MULTI-ION: Energy transport and dissipation processes in the inner heliosphere: the role of magnetic reconnection and cyclotron waves in multi-ion plasmas.

Project description
The successful candidate will perform original research in the frame of the project MULTI-ION, financed by the Ministry of Science and Education, Spain. Magnetic reconnection and wave-particle interactions are universal processes for converting magnetic energy into kinetic energy in plasmas. They are of particular interest in space plasmas, where the effect of particle collisions is often negligible. Our Sun's heliosphere constitutes an accessible natural laboratory to study in detail how these two processes operate. The specific aim of this project is to understand how the magnetic field energy originated in the Sun is transported and dissipated through the heliosphere. The successful candidate will analyze in-situ data of the satellite missions Solar Orbiter, Parker Solar Probe and/or Magnetospheric Multiscale to advance our understanding of two key plasma processes, namely magnetic reconnection and ion cyclotron waves. The satellite observations will be contrasted to analytical and numerical models which are developed within the project. The candidate is expected to collaborate with scientists at various international institutions, carry out doctoral stays at these institutions and attend international conferences.

What we offer
· Be involved in international research satellite missions in Space Physics, operated by NASA and ESA.
· Exposure and involvement in active international scientific communities. Opportunity to obtain a PhD and pursue a career in Space Physics.
· Work at the University of Murcia, Murcia, Spain. Murcia is the seventh city of Spain in terms of population (~400 000 habitants), well known for its mild climate and its ~3000 hours of Sun per year on average. It is a vibrant university city located at ~50 km of the Mediterranean sea.
· Four years contract. Salary is ~16200 gross/year for the first 2 years, ~17400 for the 3rd year and ~21700 gross/year for the 4th year (regulated by the Ministry of Science, the numbers correspond to last year call).
· Doctoral stays, attendance to conferences, computing hardware and PhD university taxes are covered by the project.

· MSc in a field relevant to the project (e.g. physics, astronomy, mathematics, computer science).
· Only those eligible to postgraduate education may be employed as a doctoral student. The selected candidate must fulfill this requirement by the time of signing the contract (~April 2022).
· The applicant must not hold already a PhD.

Recently, these embedded devices have become increasingly networked to form distributed networked embedded systems. Examples of such networked embedded systems are home automation systems, physical intrusion detection systems, smart cities or factory automation. Embedded devices are used to build critical infrastructures and we depend on their reliable operation. It is therefore essential to provide networking mechanisms which ensure reliable and dependable communications and protect these infrastructures against human error, system faults and attacks.

We are looking for an experienced researcher to join our team as a Research Fellow. The title of Research Fellow at UCC is awarded to candidates who already have relevant post-PhD work experience. The appointed person is expected to make significant contributions to the research agenda of the CONNECT research centre, working closely with the Principal Investigators Professors Pesch, Sreenan and Roedig and with academic and industry collaborators. We welcome applications of researchers with an established publication track record. The candidate should have experience in the Internet of Things research areas such as 'realtime communications', 'interference mitigation', 'communication protocol design', 'cyber security' and should have practical experience with IoT testbeds and/or deployments. Ideally, the candidate should have experience of collaborating or engaging with industry. In line with our Athena SWAN ambitions we especially encourage women to apply for this position.

Position #1: Big Data Analysis and Decision Support Systems for Smart Healthcare applications

Job description
Smart Healthcare applications represent today a hot research field, including remote health monitoring solutions enriched with AI algorithms for the automatic detection and prediction of risky and adverse health conditions of specific user categories (e.g., frail older adults, subjects affected by chronic diseases). To this aim, data derived from IoT systems are enriched with sensing data derived from personal and wearable devices in order to provide a complete picture of the user's health status, including physical, cognitive and social conditions, on a long-term period.
A research assistant position is open in this area for the definition and evaluation of AI algorithms for anomalous behaviour detection and risk prediction both in specific health domains (mainly nutrition, sleep disorders, and stress conditions) and integrated in a multidimensional evaluation of frailty condition in older adults. These algorithms should also be designed to be integrated in a mobile health (m-health) solution to guarantee the processing of sensitive data directly on the personal mobile device and to provide a personalised and motivational feedback to the monitored subject. The algorithms will be validated both on available datasets and on new datasets collected through the application of prototype solutions in real scenarios and pilot studies based on the collaboration with medical units.
The Research assistant will work on the following topics:
(i) Design and evaluation of AI algorithms for anomalous behaviour detection and risk prediction based on heterogeneous sensing data.
(ii) Integration of the proposed algorithms in a prototype m-health application.
(iii) Participation in the definition and deployment of pilot studies with real subjects.

Candidate profile
Candidates should have a MSc degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or closely related disciplines, and a proven track record of excellent University grades. Preferably, the topic of the MSc thesis should be in one of the relevant research areas (Artificial Intelligence, BigData analytics, distributed systems, e-health applications).
Good written and spoken communication skills in English are required.

The selected candidate could also be interested in applying to a PhD program in Fall 2021.

Specifically, IIT-CNR is part of several PhD programs including:
- the PhD program in Data Science (https://datasciencephd.eu/) hosted by the Scuola Normale Superiore (https://www.sns.it/en)
- the PhD programs in Computer Engineering (https://phd.dii.unipi.it/en/) and Computer Science (https://dottorato.di.unipi.it/), hosted by the University of Pisa
- the PhD program in Smart Computing, jointly organised by the Universities of Florence, Pisa, Siena, CNR, FBK (https://smartcomputing.unifi.it/)

The selection for PhD programs is managed by the related hosting university and applicants will apply directly to the official call of the specific PhD.

Position #2: Cooperative Ubiquitous Opportunistic Charging with Intelligent Battery Aging Mitigation

Job description
Battery aging (the loss of battery's capacity and internal resistance growth) is an emerging challenge for portable devices carried by mobile users. Due to the fact that newer devices are becoming more feature-rich and resource demanding, they are subjected to more charge-discharge cycles compared to their older counterparts; a pattern which increases their battery aging, and enables them to require higher power and more expensive and bigger batteries. Individualized battery aging mitigation and user profiling, which do not take into account neither other users in the networked population nor emerging energy sharing technologies like peer-to-peer wireless power transfer, are not uncovering the full potential of intelligent charging.
One post-doc position is open in this area, for the design and deployment of ubiquitous charging intelligence in order to cooperatively mitigate battery aging, radically optimize energy redistributions, and unorthodoxically increase user quality of experience. The envisioned approach will deliver fine-grained modelling and algorithmic exploitation of not only static wired charging but also wireless energy sharing technologies, and will provide a novel combination of theoretical tools, socio-technical extensions, practical simulations and (potentially) limited field trials.
The Postdoctoral Fellow will work on the following topics:
(i) Rigorous socio-technical modelling for populations of cooperative mobile users
(ii) Algorithmic development for intelligent, network-wide, wired/wireless charging with battery aging mitigation
(iii) Performance evaluation through large scale simulations and/or real device experimentation

Candidate profile
Ideal candidates should have (or are about to obtain) a PhD in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or closely related disciplines, and a proven track record of publications in relevant top-tier journals and conferences. Preferably, the topic of the PhD should have been in one of the related research areas (mobile computing, WSNs, opportunistic networks, IoT). Good written and spoken communication skills in English are required.

Research Unit (RU)
The positions will be in the Ubiquitous Internet (UI) RU of IIT-CNR in Pisa, Italy (http://cnd.iit.cnr.it). UI activities range over multiple topics related to the design and analysis of the Next Generation Internet networking and computing systems, including edge computing, Internet of People, decentralised AI, human-centric networked systems, online/mobile social networks, data centric and self-organising networks. Verticals of interest include Industry 4.0, e-health, energy efficiency, smart mobility. The RU has a strong track record of successful activities in national and European projects, from FP6 to H2020, which is reflected in the many international collaborations in EU and USA activated by the researchers of the RU.

Application procedure
Applications should consist of (all documents in English):
- a complete CV, with a complete transcript of the university grades, both at the MSc and PhD levels
- a 1-page research statement showing motivation, understanding and knowledge on the topic of the position
- contact details of 1-2 persons who could act as reference(s)
