Aalto University Department of Communications and Networking invites applications for

Tenure track position in Internet of Things

The position will be filled primarily at the Assistant Professor level.

The department of communications and networking seeks to hire a tenure track professor that can contribute to the development of core enabling technology of IoT / IoE as well as help the industry and enterprises to adapt the technology to further improve their productivity and enable completely new applications. The research focus of the successful candidate may be related to enabling network technologies and architectures (virtualization, artificial intelligence enabled networking, network security, cloud federation etc.) or it may be on the techno-economics of IoE.

The Internet of Everything (IoE) refers to intelligent connection of people, processes, data and things. The “Internet of Everything” builds on the foundation of the Internet of Things (IoT) by adding network intelligence that allows convergence, orchestration and visibility across previously disparate systems. The network plays a critical role in the IoE – it must provide an intelligent, secure, and manageable infrastructure that can scale to support billions of context-aware devices.

IoT/IoE has numerous application areas such as eHealth, transportation including automated driving, industrial internet, smart homes, smart cities, etc. Typically, an IoT is connected to a cloud. Key research issues include: security, privacy, trust, managing the massive number of devices, low power solutions, IoT processing architecture, IoT cloud federation, big data processing including Artificial Intelligence, techno-economics and legal issues etc. Standards in this domain are just emerging.
