Spain: 1 PhD position in AI for mobile networks / 1 PhD position in Mobile Data Traffic Analysis


The Networks Data Science group at IMDEA Networks Institute has 2 PhD openings.

Position 1 is for a student in the area of Network Intelligence (NI).

The successful candidate will investigate techniques for the integration of AI into virtual network functions and in the network data plane. The work will rely on real-world measurement data for AI training and validation, and AI models will be tested in experimental platform. The results will contribute to the development of novel solutions for the automated monitoring and management of future 6G networks.

The position offers:

  • A unique opportunity to work with large-scale real-world measurement data

  • Training in advanced tools for data science and machine learning, including AI

  • Fully funded long-term visiting periods in the R&D departments of leading telecommunication companies Orange Labs (France) and Ranplan Wireless (UK)

  • The prospect to publish at top-tier venues in networking and/or ubiquitous computing.

The position requires:

  • A degree in Computer Science or related field, with a solid academic record

  • Strong programming skills

  • Fluency in written and spoken English

  • Enthusiasm for interdisciplinary research

  • A sound background in computer networks

  • Previous experience in data analysis (not mandatory, but appreciated).

This position will be funded through the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Network (H2020-MSCA-ITN-2019) Project BANYAN: Big dAta aNalYtics for radio Access Networks (ID: 860239) by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme. The recruitment process and hiring conditions will follow MSCA-ITN applicable criteria.

The PhD student will be supervised by Dr. Marco Fiore, and will spend half of his/her time with the industrial partners above.

Candidates shall submit by the call deadline a CV, a motivation letter, and two reference letters through IMDEA Networks' hiring portal
