A one year postdoctoral position at POPS research project-team (LIFL, Lille, France) is open

Routing for heterogeneous ad hoc and sensor networks in civil safety context.

The POPS research group is an INRIA joint project-team with LIFL (CNRS and Lille University - USTL) and IRCICA, located in Lille.

This position take place in the context of ANR-T (French Research Agency, Telecom part) RISC (Réseaux hétérogènes Intelligents pour Situations de Crise - Intelligent heterogeneous networks for civil safety,

*Subject and tasks*
The RISC project focuses on heterogeneous networks in the context of civil safety. The goal is to study and define the communication from physical to network layer process in a crosslayer optimization. This network is heterogeneous since it contains mobile and static nodes, with variable bandwidth. Furthermore, some nodes have the ability to monitor the environment. This heterogeneity comes from realistic deployment where different kind of nodes must operate in the same global network. For example, in safety operation context, mobile nodes are human with portable radio in the field of operations, fixed nodes correspond to radios infrastructure link to external world (i.e. headquarters). Sensors are also used to support current action: Static sensors are used to monitor the environment. Mobile sensors could be placed on human to monitor either environmental constants or human biological constants during operation.

The candidate will focus on localization and routing protocols aspect of heterogeneous ad hoc networks. The goal is to study and develop a reliable and realistic routing protocol taking into account the context of the RISC project applications using physical constraints due to materials.

Two aspects will be studied:
-- Research and implementation of innovative technical methods taking into account heterogeneity of the network and in-use constraints such as priority streams,
-- Crosslayer optimization which guaranty significant improvement for the performances. In the context of mobile ad hoc wireless environment, heterogeneity tighten up the need of crosslayering methods.

*Required Qualifications/Skills*
We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with a PhD in Computer Sciences with good programming skill (C/C++,Java, ...). Candidate should have a good knowledge in distributed communication protocols at low level (up to network level mainly routing, broadcasting, localization and positioning, clustering ...) for mobile ad hoc networks.

Other welcome knowledge :
- OMNET++ simulator
- multi-flow optimisation
- network coding

*Starting date*: as soon as possible.
