Project Description

H2020-MSCA-ITN-2017-EID Marie Sklodowska Curie Industrial Doctorate Position on Sensor, IoT and Data Intelligence for Smart Water Networks ( IoT4Win)

RESEARCH FIELD: Computer Science › Computer Systems
RESEARCHER PROFILE: First Stage Researcher (R1)

In the context of the IoT4WIn project, we search for an Early stage researcher to purpose his/her PhD under the topic "IoT smart framework and dynamic web platform for Integrated Knowledge Management in Urban Water Networks" .
The main objectives of the planned research is to investigate methodologies of connecting, integrating, updating, and managing heterogeneous distributed systems efficiently, including semantic annotations of heterogeneous data for automated discovery and knowledge-based processing to contribute to the technology development for building an IoT smart framework to support multi-sectorial decision making and information sharing to improve coordination among stakeholders for sustainable water management applications. Research activities will focus on smart interoperability frameworks to exploit heterogeneous sensor networks dynamically; and real time analytics with machine learning to support the dynamic web models for decision making. This position will be employed by Singular Logic, Greece, and be registered for PhD at Birmingham City University UK.
