Swiss Research Assistant Position in Wireless Sensor Networking

As part of the European research project WASP (Wirelessly Accessible Sensor Population), the EPFL AudioVisual Communications Laboratory (LCAV) is looking for a Research Assistant (100%).

The WASP project aims at developing an autonomous and intelligent infrastructure based on wireless sensor networks with applications in three main areas selected for their societal relevance and technical differences: assisted road transport, elderly care, and herd health control.

We are looking for an independent and creative CS/EE engineer to drive this project. He will also collaborate with other sensor networks related projects in which LCAV takes part, such as the SensorScope project.

The main tasks are related to the WASP project and depend on the project requirements:

  • Implementation of communication protocols (simulation and/or implementation on real hardware)
  • Literature review on wireless sensor networks
  • Participation to the project meetings in several European countries
  • Writing of reports on the project-related activities

The requirements for this position are:
  • MS in CS/EE or related area
  • Good understanding and experience (simulation or implementation) in wireless communications systems
  • Good knowledge of English, both written and spoken
