KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

Job description

The advertised post-doctoral position is within an ambitious, 5-year European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator Project titled “ULTRA”, led by Prof. Dejan Kostic (https://people.kth.se/~dejanko). In this 2 Million EUR project, we want to dramatically change the way Internet Services are constructed.

Your work will entail design, implementation, and evaluation of distributed systems and networks for building ultra-low latency Internet services. Examples include advanced highly streamlined server software, Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) chains at the true speed of the underlying hardware, intra datacenter load-balancing, and agile and efficient geo-distributed data storage systems that meet their Service Level Objectives.

As a member of the research lab, you will be involved in experimental systems work in collaboration with faculty members and several doctoral students at our research lab. You will contribute to scientific publications as well as to new grant applications.

This is a temporary position for one year that might be extended for another year.
