The Faculty of Computer Science at the University of Koblenz-
Landau, Campus Koblenz, Computer Networks Group, is inviting
applications for a
PhD Position (3 years, full time)
for working within the DFG priority program "Cyber-Physical
Networking (SPP 1914)". The position is to be filled as soon as
possible (preferably Sep/Oct 2016), limited to 3 years and is subject
to the German law on fixed-term contracts in science (WissZeitVG).
Salary will be according to the German public service salary scale
The prospective research assistant will be responsible for the project
"analysis and synthesis of combined cooperative control and
topology control over wireless network models", which is a joint
project between the Computer Networks Group at the University of
Koblenz-Landau and the Institute of Control Systems at the
Hamburg-Harburg Technical University. At both sites one PhD
student is to be employed in this project context.
The PhD student employed at the University of Koblenz-Landau will
research appropriate adaptation of the interaction network graph to
the time-varying conditions of the wireless communication channels
to significantly improve the achievable performance of cooperative
control of multi-agent systems (e.g. swarms of autonomous AUVs or
UAVs). He will develop and analyze topology control schemes to
maintain the highest level of algebraic connectivity (aiming at high
performance and robustness of cooperative control) while taking into
account SINR constraints. The focus is on distributed and local
solutions with the goal to support any system scale. Proof of concept
will be given by simulation studies based on source-seeking
scenarios, which will be selected to highlight the various features of
the proposed integrated collaborative control and topology control
The successful candidate has an above-average completed scientific
university study, preferably in the area of computer science or
mathematics (M.Sc, Diploma). You have demonstrated the ability to
carry out independent scientific work, are dedicated, and strive to
deepen your knowledge and skills, and successfully finish the project
with a PhD. You have the skills to mathematically proof theoretical
claims, and are interested to do research in the area of algorithms and
graphs. Very good proficiency in written and spoken English is
Knowledge in control theory is not required for this part of the joint
project. However, it is expected that the employee is willing to
collaborate with the employee working at the control theoretic part
handled by the project partner Institute of Control Systems at the
Hamburg-Harburg Technical University. Applicants with background
in control theory are welcome to also apply for the position opening of
the project partner, the Institute of Control Systems at the Hamburg-Harburg Technical University (www.tuhh.de/rts/welcome.html).
Please contact Prof. Dr. Hannes Frey (phone +49 (0)261/287-2726)
for further information.
