Are you the one?
Luleå University of Technology is in strong growth with world-leading competence in several research areas. We shape the future through innovative education and ground-breaking research results, and based on the Arctic region, we create global social benefit. Our scientific and artistic research and education are conducted in close collaboration with international, national and regional companies, public actors and leading universities. Luleå University of Technology has a total turnover of SEK 1.9 billion per year. We currently have 1,840 employees and 17,670 students. In the coming years, multi-billion sums will be invested in Norrbotten and Västerbotten in large projects aimed at a more sustainable society nationally as well as globally. Luleå University of Technology is involved in several of these highly topical research projects and the social transformation that follows. We have a wide range of training courses to match the skills that are in demand. We hope you will help us build the sustainable companies and communities of the future. The research topic communication and computing systems at the department of computer science at Luleå University of Technology is now looking for a researcher. The subject is particularly active in areas such as new algorithms and knowledge models for artificial intelligence, systems and software engineering for future industrial automation systems, efficient and reliable embedded computing, and automation of energy systems and data centers. Subject description The subject includes research linked to the integrated development and management of reliable network architectures, resource-efficient algorithms and programming paradigms that work together to create reliability properties in selected applications. Project description Research in the subject of communication and computing systems is primarily focused on modern computer technology, for example system design and validation of industrial control and automation systems, simulation and verification, neuromorphic computer architectures and communication. You will conduct research in the area of ​​hyperdimensional computing and vector symbolic architectures and contribute research results to the ongoing and future research projects in the group. The position also includes searching for, leading and collaborating in research projects as well as communicating and disseminating research results.
