Open Positions

The NES institute is a hub for science and innovation in networked and embedded systems. We offer opportunities for creative minds in an environment that promotes excellence and mutual appreciation. The following positions are offered to further strengthen our team.

PostDoc Researcher in the Ubiquitous Sensing Lab

The University of Klagenfurt and Silicon Austria Labs GmbH are jointly establishing the Ubiquitous Sensing (USE) Lab and are pleased to announce the following open position, employment to commence as soon as possible:

1 Senior Scientist for research track “Networked Sensing, Sensor Fusion and Virtual Sensing”

Level of employment: 100 %
Minimum salary: € 55,242.60 per annum (gross); classification according to collective agreement: B1 lit. b
Limited to: December 31, 2023
Application deadline: September 15, 2021
Reference code: 301-1/21

The USE Lab is organized in four research tracks and will address both hardware and software aspects focussing on model-based approaches for multi-sensor fusion, adaptive operation, auto calibration, self-diagnosis and methods for the fast development and verification of advanced sensor systems which include the exploitation of advanced signal processing and machine learning techniques. This involves basic and application oriented interdisciplinary research to offer industry accelerated market entrance possibilities for innovative ideas e.g., in the fields IoT (Internet of Things) and I4.0 (Industry 4.0).

We are soliciting applications for research track #3 “Networked Sensing, Sensor Fusion and Virtual Sensing”, which covers the following topics: Resource-aware in-network processing and analytics of homogeneous and heterogeneous sensor data; multi-sensor and multi-modal fusion; self-calibration, self-organization and resource management in networked sensing systems; methods for resource-aware data distribution and virtual sensing in sensor networks. Track leader: Prof. Bernhard Rinner.

1 Predoc Scientist (all genders welcome)

Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt is offering an open position at the Department of Networked and Embedded Systems (Research Group Smart Grids) with a negotiable starting date, preferably commencing on October 1, 2021:
• 1 Predoc Scientist (all genders welcome)
• Place: Klagenfurt, Austria
• Level of employment: 75 % (30 hours/week)
• Minimum salary: € 31,200.40 per annum (gross); classification according to collective agreement: B1
• Limited to: 4 years
• Application deadline: August 25, 2021
• Reference code: 367/21
We are looking especially for people with a Master’s degree in a field related to Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Information Technology, Communications Engineering, Power Engineering, or Physics.
The research group deals with the design, modelling and analysis of future systems for energy generation, measurement and management. The main challenge here is the transformation of our energy system into a smart grid with minimal CO2 emissions. To this end, the research group addresses interdisciplinary issues in the fields of self-organisation and artificial intelligence. Another topic is self-organising swarm systems and their application in swarm robotics.
The staff members work in a dedicated, collegial and international team in the very well-equipped Lakeside Science & Technology Park. The working language is English. The department cooperates with national and international partners from science and industry. It is also part of the Lakeside Labs research cluster (self-organising networked systems) and a European Erasmus Mundus doctoral programme (interactive and cognitive systems).
