[DMANET] Postdoc Research Fellow position on 5G Service Function Chain at University of Exeter, UK

Dear colleagues,

We are looking for a Postdoc Research Fellow to conduct research on 5G
Service Function Chain at the University of Exeter (,
a member of the prestigious Russell Group of research-intensive
universities in UK.

This is a two-year position. The post will include proposing a uniform VNF
chaining framework to efficiently construct SFCs; developing a proactive
model, considering future network and service variations at
the initialisation of SFC placement, to perform practical service
deployment in 5G mobile networks; and proposing a real-time deterministic
model to perform SFC placement for unforeseen variations.

Applicants will possess a relevant PhD or equivalent
qualification/experience in a related field of study and be able to
demonstrate sufficient knowledge in 5G, stochastic optimisation, dynamic
system modelling, and machine learning to work within established research
programmes. Applicants should be proficiency in MATLAB and Python and have
hands-on experience working with OpenStack and NS-3/OMNeT++.

*How to apply and more information/requirements:*

The application deadline is on 15 July 2018. For further questions, please
