PhD positions in mobile networking, IIT-CNR, Pisa, Italy

The Ubiquitous Internet Group of IIT-CNR (Institute for Informatics and Telematics of the National Research Council), Pisa, Italy opens 2 fully funded PhD Student positions in the framework of the FP7 FET-AWARE RECOGNITION project due to start on 1st October 2010.
The PhD students will be supervised by Marco Conti and Andrea Passarella.

RECOGNITION aims to develop innovative, groundbreaking self-awareness
paradigms for the Future Internet, looking primarily at content-centric networking aspects. The massive scale of content the Future Internet will have to manage and the long tail of user interests require novel content management solutions. Specifically, RECOGNITION will identify, design and evaluate the self-awareness mechanisms to support a global network where the legacy Internet will be replaced by a more fluid content-centric infrastructure where data are often located on mobile users' devices possibly disconnected from the network, and where content access, rather than connectivity, will be the key design goal.

The PhD thesis will focus on one or more of the following topics:
- definition of self-awareness mechanisms for heterogeneous (mobile/fixed) content-centric networks
- content dissemination in massive scale heterogeneous (mobile/fixed)
- social/human inspired self-aware networking paradigms
- self-aware content management, indexing and acquisition in massive scale heterogeneous (mobile/fixed) networks.

The ideal candidate for these positions holds a MSc (or an equivalent
degree) in Computer Science or Computer Engineering with a solid
background on computer networking and mobile computing. Experience either in systems design or in analysis (applied to mobile networks) will be positively considered. Experience in simulation of computer networks will be a plus. Good knowledge of English is also desired.

Closing date for applications: 15/09/2010 (or as soon as the positions are filled)
Expected start date: October 2010

Each application must contain the following documents:
- a detailed CV in English
- a list of relevant academic courses (with grades)
- a list of 1 or 2 references with contact addresses
- a 1-page research statement, indicating the experience/interest with
respect to the proposed topics

Applications should be sent electronically to and

with subject "application for PhD positions - RECOGNITION".

The Researchers of the Ubiquitous Internet Group of IIT-CNR feature vast expertise in the area of mobile networking, distributed systems and performance evaluation. They participate in several European Projects on opportunistic, delay-tolerant, mesh, sensor networks, such as SOCIALNETS (, Haggle (, EU-Mesh (, as well in recently funded EU Projects such as FP7-AWARE RECOGNITION and FP7-FIRE SCAMPI.
They have coordinated the FP5 MobileMAN project, which defined, developed and tested a campus-wide, self-organizing, and totally wireless network. The UIG group is actively involved in the European initiatives related to the Future Internet, both through participation in cutting-edge, exploratory research projects, and through the participation of its members to consulting groups of the European Commission. In this framework, and with specific reference to the open position, UIG welcomes inter-disciplinary research approaches exploiting complex network models of social structures in the design of Future Internet architectures.
