The PhD projects should carry out research in the field of mobile clouds as future service platform for mobile communication networks. Mobile clouds are networks where mobile devices are connected directly with each other to generate services for each other. In contrast to state of the art approaches, these services do not depend on any network provider and therefore open a new dimension of services. New services are the key enabler for new markets. In order to increase the battery life of the mobile device and to decrease the overall energy spent by the network providers, the mobile clouds are designed to be green, that is, aiming at higher energy and power efficiencies. Beside the theoretical work on green mobile clouds, implementations will give valuable feedback on the theoretical work as well as help break ground towards real products in order to create a significant social-economical impact for Denmark.
Experience in one or multiple fields:
- mobile communication
- communication protocol design
- knowledge in network coding
- cooperative and cognitive strategies for communication systems
- experience in simulating communication networks
- imbedded systems
- programming mobile devices (Symbian/iOs/J2Me/etc)
- C/C++ knowledge
You may obtain further information from Associate Professor Dr.-Ing. Frank H.P. Fitzek, firstname.lastname@example.org concerning the technical aspects of the stipends.
PhD stipends are allocated to individuals who hold a Masters degree. PhD stipends are normally for a period of 3 years. It is a prerequisite for allocation of the stipend that the candidate will be enrolled as a PhD student at the Doctoral School of the Faculty of Engineering and Science, in accordance with the regulations of Ministerial Order No. 18 of January 14, 2008 on the PhD Programme at the Universities.
