Fluid Service Abstraction for Large-Scale Cloud IoT Systems

Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Intelligent Fog/Edge Computing

Position as Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Intelligent Fog/Edge Computing available at the Networks and Distributed systems (ND) group, Department of Informatics, University of Oslo. The fellowship is for a period of 2 years and devoted to carrying out research in the context of the DILUTE project.


More about the position

By 2025 there will be nearly 75 billion Internet addressable devices, Internet of Things (IoT), which translates into an annual economic impact of $3.9 trillion to $11.1 trillion by 2025 across many different settings, including factories, cities, retail environments, and the human body, according to McKinsey Global Institute. IoT and Cloud integration will enable development of large-scale IoT applications, such as smart cities, energy, health, etc. Moreover, due to requirements such as mobility support, location-awareness and low latency, the cloud has been recently extended to the edge of the network—Fog Computing. Developing large-scale IoT applications using cloud and edge/fog computing resources is challenging because it requires intelligent and distributed software design and development solutions that match highly dynamic and heterogeneous resources at different levels of the network hierarchy from IoT devices to edge devices and the Cloud. DILUTE is aimed to address this challenge.

We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher who is interested in designing, developing, and evaluating techniques and frameworks related to the above. In particular, the selected candidate is expected to conduct research on fog/edge-level dynamic software service distribution, composition, and migration based on resource availability, network dynamicity, and future application needs. Additionally, it is expected that the researcher actively contributes to the coordination of collaboration between all partners contributing to DILUTE, including supervision of PhD-candidates.
