Vacancy - PDRA - Privacy Trust and Harnessing Economic Value in the Internet of Things

The Centre is seeking a PDRA to work on harnessing the economic value of the Internet of Things (IoT). The work will be undertaken as part of the recently funded PETRAS Internet of Things Research Hub which comprises of nine leading UK Universities and over 47 partners from Industry and the Public Sector (www.epsrc.ac.uk/newsevents/news/iotresearchhub/).

The post offers a unique opportunity to conduct research on how to harness economic value in the Internet of Things, with access to a wide pool of academic, industrial and governmental stakeholders and research and development “in the wild”. Two core challenges addressed by the stream are big data at unprecedented scale and how to predictably gain efficiency in complex IoT systems. They will work with the social and technical leads of the Harness Economic Value stream, Professor David De Roure (Oxford) and Professor Michael Huth (Imperial) respectively. The post will run, in the first instance, from 6 June 2016 for a fixed-term period of 1 year. Consideration may be given to a later commencement to accommodate existing notice periods.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 22 April 2016. Interviews will be held on 3 May 2016.

Offered at Grade 7 £30,738 - £37,768pa
