Research Associate Vacancy
Social Networking Between Wireless Devices
School of Computer Science, Cardiff University, UK

A Research Associate position is available to conduct research into  the development of new techniques to enable more flexible mobile  ad-hoc networks for information provision in situated environments.  The work will form part of an international European research project  funded by the Future Emerging Technologies programme for high  adventure research.

The post involves exploring new approaches for enhanced adaptability  and flexibility based on social networks. These approaches will be  socially inspired and human-centric, and will form the basis for new  and intelligent techniques that can be embedded in devices for  information sharing between peers. This will be investigated with  reference to spatial-temporal information. You will be required to:

- Contribute to the development of socially-inspired and intelligent  techniques for information provision using peer-to-peer interactions  between devices in mobile ad-hoc networks.
- Test the proposed methodologies by implementing suitable simulations.
- Determine suitable test scenarios for the approaches, and provide  empirical evidence for their effectiveness.
- Analyse the results of empirical experimentation and produce  recommendations.
- Collaborate with and provide information for project partners at  other academic institutions.
- Write and edit regular progress reports and deliverables.
- Present the research at project meetings.
- Write and submit academic articles for conferences and journal publication.

The post is fixed-term for 34 months.
Salary: 27466 - 32796 per annum
