MEng position (leading to a PhD) in Wireless Communication Networks and Protocols
The Telecommunications Research Centre in the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering at the University of Limerick currently has a MEng position (leading to a PhD) in Wireless Communication Networks and Protocols, funded by SFI Basic Research Grant 2004 scheme. Funding is available for a full-time one year of MEng study with an opportunity to transfer it to a PhD study if the candidate demonstrates excellent abilities during the first year.
The work on this project involves a study and a development of a universal smart card prototype for Always Best Connected and Served (ABC&S) paradigm realisation in future UBIQUITOUS CONSUMER WIRELESS WORLD (UCWW).
The successful candidate should have a first-class honours basic degree, solid background in the wireless mobile communications (especially Information and Communications System security, X.509 certificates, and smart card technologies) and a demonstrated ability to publish and be pro-active in publishing scientific results in the relevant international journals and conferences. The successful candidate should have an excellent development experience in programming (Java/J2EE/J2SE/J2ME/JavaCard) and program verification and validation, and have a flair for design and implementation of protocols for mobile networking. Knowledge of security architectures for software engineering would be an advantage. All qualified candidates are invited to apply ASAP.
Applications in the form of a full curriculum vita, an official transcript of academic records, statements of research interest, a list of references (at least two), and a list of publications (if any) along with contact address, telephone number and email to:
