Open position in InnoCyPES: At University of Salento, Italy, a 30 month “Marie Curie ETN Early Stage Researcher” position is open for application.
Description of the project:
We are seeking for exceptional, talented applicants committed to work in the context of the European project InnoCyPES (Innovative Tools for Cyber-Physical Energy Systems), a Marie Curie Action Innovative Training Network providing world-leading and transferable scientific training to a new generation of 15 high-achieving early stage researchers (ESRs).
In the course of their training, the students will study, investigate and improve various facets of digitalized and interconnected energy systems. Supervised by a consortium of prominent and experienced academic institutions, research institutes and industrial partners, they will collaboratively develop a cutting-edge system management platform that covers the entire lifecycle of data for energy system planning, operation and maintenance, based on an understanding of the energy system as a cyber-physical system.
The ESR research activity will be carried out on premises mainly at the University of Salento. We invite applications from candidates working in the field of Computer Science, who have experience and strong knowledge with regard to data management (database etc), distributed systems, Peer-to-Peer systems and blockchains, and who have a strong interest in the research topic, covering large scale data management and integration. Excellent programming skills in C/C++ in the Unix environment are also required.
We are aware of the fact that knowing all the subjects listed above is even very difficult for a Master of Science student. Therefore, highly motivated students who know some of the above subjects listed above are encouraged to apply.
