Postdoc position available - FRμIT project

We're seeking a postdoctoral research associate to work on the EPSRC-funded FRμIT project at the University of Glasgow. The position involves building a massively distributed federated compute fabric using commodity low-power infrastructure, such as Raspberry Pi nodes.

The successful candidate will contribute to the EPSRC-funded FRuIT project (Federated Raspberry Pi Micro-infrastructure Testbed) working with Jeremy Singer, Dimitrios Pezaros and Colin Perkins at Glasgow. The overall aim of the project is to create a UK-wide federated testbed of O(10K) lightweight compute nodes capable of exploring research issues that arise from such a dynamic infrastructure. There will be interaction with project partners at the Universities of Cambridge, Southampton and Liverpool John Moores.

Specifically, this job requires expert knowledge in network test-beds, virtualisation and distributed data centres.

The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to the formulation and submission of research publications and research proposals as well as help manage and direct this complex and challenging project as opportunities allow.

Full details can be found on jobs.ac.uk. The closing date for applications is 11 December 2016.
