The CISTER/IPP-HURRAY Research Unit (www.cister.isep.ipp.pt) invites
applications for Research Scientist positions to develop research in
the area of Real-time Computing and Embedded Systems. This/These
research positions will correspond to a 5-years research contract.


==========================
Further information is available at:

http://www.hurray.isep.ipp.pt/asp/list_jobs2.asp
==========================

Application Deadline: 10 September, 2008
Contact: cister-info@isep.ipp.pt
Reference: C2008-CISTER/FCT608/RS/08


APPLICATION PROCEDURE:

Candidates should send the following by email to cister-info@isep.ipp.pt:

- CV (including publication list);
- A brief research plan (maximum 2 pages);
- 2-3 recommendation letters (preferred) or 2-3 contacts that could
be used for obtaining recommendation letters.

* Candidates will receive an acknowledgment by email that the application
has been received.


SALARY AND BENEFITS:

Salary will be at least, depending on the merits of the successful
candidates, 45,000 euros per year before taxes. Other benefits include
private health insurance, social security and 25 days of paid vacation.
The CISTER/IPP-HURRAY research facilities and expertise offer an
excellent research environment for leveraging research skills.


RESPONSABILITIES:

The successful candidates are expected to develop an independent research
program on a sub-set of the above referred strategic research areas with
the purpose of providing synergy with and strengthen existing research
areas at the CISTER/IPP-HURRAY research unit. They should also be skilled
to supervise post-graduate research and in applying for project and research
projects.


REQUIREMENTS:

The candidates should have a PhD in Computer Science, Electrical and
Computer Engineering or related fields, with particular expertise in
real-time computing systems or embedded systems. The candidates should
also have had at least 3 years of post-doctoral experience (although this
can be relaxed in some very specific cases) with an international-level
publication record and demonstrated ability to do independent research.
Fluency in written and spoken English is required.


BACKGROUND:

The CISTER Research Unit focuses its activity in the analysis,
design and implementation of real-time and embedded computing systems.
The unit is based upon the IPP-HURRAY Research Group (HUgging Real-time
and Reliable Architectures for computing sYstems), which was created
in 1997, and has since grown to become the most prominent research
group of the School of Engineering (ISEP) of the Polytechnic Institute
of Porto (IPP), and one of the leading European research groups in the
area of real-time computing systems. In 2004, the CISTER/IPP-HURRAY
Research Unit was granted the classification of "Excellent" from an
international jury. Notably, in the area of "Electrical and Computer
Engineering", the CISTER/IPP-HURRAY unit was the only one (out of 28
Portugal-wide) to attain the topmost classification of excellent.

Historically, real-time (RT) computing systems were an important,
but narrow, niche of computer systems, consisting mainly of military
systems, air traffic control and embedded systems for manufacturing
and process control. Meanwhile, the emergence of large-scale
distributed systems, enabled by advances in networking technology and
miniaturization, has broaden RT concerns into a mainstream enterprise,
with clients in a wide variety of industries and academic disciplines.
This tendency has been establishing real-time computing technology as
a priority for commercial strategy and academic research for the
foreseeable future and also for a wider number of applications.

The unit's research work and experiences from applying RT technologies
to industrial projects has led us to appreciate the importance of RT
computing in the broader area of computing systems. Therefore, in the
recent years, the unit has been working on applying this technology to
solve different problems, arising from the perspective of more open RT
computing systems, with heterogeneous networks and devices, combining
RT and non-RT applications. We have been contributing with seminal
research works in a number of areas: RT communication networks and
protocols; wireless sensor networks (WSN); RT programming paradigms;
cooperative computing and QoS-aware applications; scheduling and
schedulability analysis (including multiprocessor systems), just to
name a few. This is a sufficiently broad spectrum of strategic research
topics, which we will keep pursuing in the coming years. The special
strategic targets for the coming years, and directly related to these
available research positions, are the following: (i) communication
paradigms for wireless sensor networks (WSN) and WSN applications;
(ii) QoS-aware cooperative computing on networked embedded systems;
(iii) multiprocessor / multicore computing systems and
(iv) Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS).

The successful candidates are expected to develop an independent
research program on a sub-set of the above referred strategic research
areas with the purpose of providing synergy with and strengthen
existing research areas at the CISTER/IPP-HURRAY research unit.
