New Job Vacancy: H2020-MSCA-ITN-2017-EID Marie Sklodowska Curie Industrial Doctorate Position on Sensor, IoT and Data Intelligence for Smart Water Networks ( IoT4Win)

In the context of the IoT4WIn project, we search for an Early stage researcher to purpose his/her PhD under the topic “IoT smart framework and dynamic web platform for Integrated Knowledge Management in Urban Water Networks” .

The main objectives of the planned research is to investigate methodologies of connecting, integrating, updating, and managing heterogeneous distributed systems efficiently, including semantic annotations of heterogeneous data for automated discovery and knowledge-based processing to contribute to the technology development for building an IoT smart framework to support multi-sectorial decision making and information sharing to improve coordination among stakeholders for sustainable water management applications. Research activities will focus on smart interoperability frameworks to exploit heterogeneous sensor networks dynamically; and real time analytics with machine learning to support the dynamic web models for decision making. This position will be employed by Singular Logic,Greece, and be registered for PhD at Birmingham City University UK.

Benefits
Successful candidates will receive a three year, full time employment contract with SingularLogic Romania and will enroll for a PhD in Birmingham City University in accordance with the European Commission rules for ESRs. In addition to a competitive annual salary, the successful candidate could be eligible for a mobility allowance if they are relocating from overseas.

Eligibility criteria
Applicants of any nationalities are eligible and must comply with the European Commission, Horizon 2020 Guidelines mobility rules. In particular, they must not have performed their main activity in Romania for more than 12 months of the 36 months preceding the position. Early-Stage Researchers must be in the first four years (full-time equivalent) of their research careers, starting at the date of obtaining the degree which would formally entitle them to embark on a doctorate

Selection process
Applications for these roles must include a research proposal that is aligned with the topic of the project and present the candidate‘s approach to the problem at the link for application submission. Applications should include proposal, CV, list of 3 referees and motivation letter.

This research proposal should include the note: The proposal is a response to H2020-MSCA-ITN-IoT4Win. Informal enquiries can be addressed to Prof. Wenyan Wu on wenyan.wu@bcu.ac.uk with reference IOT4WIN. The selected candidates will be invited for an initial interview, via Skype or phone.
