Call For Papers

Dear All - Greetings

Could you please share the following job postings in your network.

Research Positions in Web Services for IoT


Two research positions are available in the research domain of Web Service for Internet of Things (IoT). Successful candidates shall work on the 6-IMS project funded by The Research Council of Oman.

The project aims at the design and development of a large-scale and interoperable architecture of heterogeneous networks and applications for intelligent (monitoring) systems using 6LowPAN as the core sensing and communication protocol. One of the main tasks of this work is the incorporation of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) with IoT to realize the notion of Internet of Services (IoS). Service-oriented architecture suits particularly well in this scenario since it helps development of the ‘things’ as services, simple or complex. The main challenges to be tackled in the project include heterogeneity, service transparency, scalability, intelligent prediction, and context awareness.

Position 1 – Post Doctoral Researcher

Responsibilities

· Conduct research on various issues related to Integration of Web Services with IoT.
· Develop new theoretical models for application domain.
· Write and publish articles in peer-reviewed journals.
· Contribute to prototype development and experimental activities.
· Document project reports, ensuring conceptual relevance, comprehensiveness, and currency of information.
· Develop collaborative links with other research institutes.
· Create new research ideas and proposals to attract research grants.
· Supervise and train junior members of the team.

Requirements

· A PhD in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a related field.
· Research expertise in some of the following areas: SOA, IoT, IoS, Wireless Sensor Networks, RFID, Cloud Computing.
· At least 1-2 years hands-on experience in IoT development and simulation technologies.
· Excellent research and publications record.
· Strong verbal and written communication skills.

Apart from the technical skills, it is essential that the candidate has a strong motivation, can work with autonomy, is an effective team player, and open to collaborate with others.
The position is available starting January 01, 2016 and applications shall be accepted until the position is filled. The position shall be offered initially for one year and can be extended by another year based on performance. Remuneration will commensurate with the candidate’s qualifications and experience.
Position 2 – Research Assistant

Responsibilities

· Design and implement Intelligent Monitoring Scenarios using 6LoWPAN and other WSN platforms.
· Perform simulation and performance evaluation of various monitoring scenarios.
· Implement prototypes of the required intelligent applications in accordance with 6-IMS requirements.
· Write and publish articles in peer-reviewed journals and conferences.

Requirements

· A Masters degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or a related field.
· Research expertise in some of the following areas: Intelligent monitoring using sensor networks, RFID, wireless and mobile ad hoc networks, smart space development, simulation and performance evaluation.
· Hands-on experience in WSN development and simulation technologies, e.g., TinyOS, real-time OS, ns2, and Qualnet.
· Strong problem solving and programming skills.
· Strong verbal and written communication skills.

Apart from the technical skills, it is essential that the candidate has a strong motivation, can work with autonomy, is an effective player, and open to collaborate with others.
The position is available starting January 01, 2016 and applications shall be accepted until the position is filled.

DU is a young university where campus life is brimming with social and cultural events that reflect the rich heritage of Oman and that of Dhofar (art exhibits, performances, poetry readings, environmental awareness presentations, etc). The university offers a variety of Undergrad and Master Programs and has a student enrollment of about 5500. More information about the University can be found at http://www.du.edu.om/.
The university is located in the beautiful city of Salalah, which is the second largest city of Oman. Salalah’s coconut-fringed beaches, frankincense, rich tradition, and mild weather (compared to the rest of Middle East) make living in Salalah a wonderful experience for expats and visitors.
