Post Doctoral Position and Studentship, School of Engineering, U of Warwick

University of Warwick, UK 

Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the School of Engineering 


Evolutionary algorithms for dynamic network coding 


Post Number: 59727-058 


The primary role is to work on the recently funded EPSRC grant EP/F033591/1, "Network Coding via Evolutionary Algorithms" under the guidance of Dr M S Leeson (Principal Investigator) and Dr E L Hines (Co Investigator). 


Although it is essential that the majority of the successful candidate's time be spent working to deliver the outcomes of the research grant above, there is scope to develop new interactions and lay the foundations for future grants. The postholder should be flexible in their attitude to their duties as appropriate for a major research led department.

University of Warwick, UK 

PhD Studentship in the School of Engineering 


Secure network coding using evolutionary algorithms 


Post Number: ENG13-058 


This opportunity also arises from the recent award of EPSRC grant EP/F033591/1, "Network Coding via Evolutionary Algorithms" to Dr M S Leeson (Principal Investigator) and Dr E L Hines (Co Investigator). 


This project proposes to investigate the employment of evolutionary computing to the search for network codes. The starting point is the selection of nodes for coding via genetic algorithms, which has only recently been considered in the literature. The student will address the implementation of secure network coding in this framework, leading to a secure network coding scheme that takes account of the limited resources available in real networks.
