    Applications invited for a Post-Doctoral Researcher (BACOPT II). Position Filled.

    The Mobile & Internet Systems Laboratory (MISL) conducts basic and applied research in computer networking for mobile/wireless and multimedia systems. Led by Prof. Sreenan, the laboratory is supported externally by several Irish and international companies, Enterprise Ireland, the EU and Science Foundation Ireland.

    Applications are now invited for the following position on a new applied research project (BACOPT-II) that will commence in October 2011. This project builds on the recently completed BACOPT-I project and will again involve very close research collaboration with an established telecoms company who part-fund the project together with Enterprise Ireland. The focus of BACOPT-II is to design novel techniques for optimising data delivery over backhaul links, with an emphasis on bandwidth-demanding video content and wireless access networks.
