Marie Curie Action Early Stage Researcher Position – Smart Grid – Machine to Machine (M2M) Communications
This ESR position is one of 13 positions offered under the ADVANTAGE ITN project. A network of 13 ESRs will work in a coordinated manner all around Europe for 3 years. This is a unique opportunity to grow your professional career as a researcher.
In order to make smart grid system autonomous, an autonomous communication between network elements must be facilitated, which falls within the area of machine-to-machine (M2M) communications. M2M communications are essentially different from human-based communications and thus require a revisit of the design of current communication networks that are not optimized for M2M traffic. Transmission of small amounts of data, the scheduled periodic transmission of data, the combination of delay-constrained (e.g., fault-detection) and delay-tolerant (e.g., meter reading) applications are some of the challenges that need to be tackled in the coming years. This research project will design and evaluate novel communication protocols at the NET, MAC, and PHY layers to fit these unique requirements
The ESR on this project will benefit from the partnership between academic institutions and industrial partners. They will attend initial school training events and thus be exposed to the research activities of all participants at regular six monthly progress meetings. They will engage in training events, visits to companies and secondments to other project partners.Application Deadline: 30/04/2014
