Om jobbet

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 investments will be made in large projects in Northern Sweden to create a fossil-free society both nationally and globally. Luleå University of Technology is involved in several of these cutting-edge research projects and in the societal transformation that they entail. We offer a broad range of courses and study programmes to match the skills in demand. We hope that you will help us to build the sustainable companies and societies of the future.The EISLAB division of the Department of Computer Science, Electrical and Space Engineering conducts research within Cyber-Physical Systems, Electronic Systems, and Machine Learning. EISLAB is involved in several large European projects on distributed system construction with a focus on IoT, systems of systems (SoS), and Cyber-Physical Systems. Present examples include Arrowhead fPVN (42 partners, from 11 countries in Europe) and AIMS5.0 (53 partners in Europe, large industries, small and medium-sized industries, research organizations, and universities). A major result is the Eclipse Arrowhead, an open-source software framework for industrial automation widely supported by European industry. 

Subject description

Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) focuses on integrated software and application architectures with implementations of massively distributed embedded systems that interact with each other and their environment to enable secure, goal-driven, autonomous, and evolvable solutions. 

Project description

You will work with some of the following areas of CPS: 
-Digitalized negotiations and contract establishment for secure data sharing and interactions in federated and decentralized systems. 
-Smart contracts and data storage in decentralized systems, for example, for value-creating services based on digital product passports (DPPs). 
-Virtualization in the compute continuum for flexible, robust, secure, and adaptable distributed and service-oriented systems. 
-Security, sub-granting, and access control in industrial IoT and CPS. 
-Scalable and secure digital twinning in industrial edge to cloud. 
-Decentralized systems in general, including blockchain technologies and distributed hash tables (DHTs). 

The work will be conducted as part of national or European projects with industrial partners. Targeted results include academic papers and contributions with open-source code, for example, for the Eclipse Arrowhead. 

The position typically involves working in collaboration with both academia and industrial partners in Europe. Collaboration with the industry is thus important. In this, you will work closely with other LTU researchers and take part in the supervision of doctoral students. The position mainly includes work on research projects. Teaching and pedagogical development work are also included. 

The holder of the position is expected to contribute in: 
-Research within funded projects in collaboration with other senior researchers at EISLAB as well as postgraduate and civil engineering students. 
-Financing activities defined in collaboration with the chaired professor and the division head. 
-Education at the university at engineering, civil engineering, and postgraduate education levels, teaching, and supervision. 
-Contribute to a healthy and forward-looking work climate at the division EISLAB, SRT, and Luleå University of Technology. 

To be a qualified applicant, you must have a doctorate or equivalent foreign degree in CPS, distributed computer systems, computer science, digitalization/automation systems, or the like. In the first instance, it should be considered that a doctorate has been awarded for a maximum of three years before the end of the application period. 

You must be proficient in computer science and possess good programming skills, including software design, basic programming concepts as well as programming experience. Previous experience working with micro-services systems, applied machine learning (ML), IoT, CPS, and/or SoS is valuable but not a requirement. Fluency in oral and written communication in English is a requirement. 

Experience in international research collaboration, university-level teaching in English, and good programming skills are merit for the service.
