Applications are invited for funded Ph.D. positions on the topics below, in the CTVR Telecommunications Research Centre, School of Computer Science and Statistics, Trinity College Dublin.
* Dynamic traffic aggregation to support transparent optical networks and efficient multi-layer traffic switching (i.e., switching traffic at the lowest/most efficient layer)
* Intelligent, self-aware networks, capable of reconfiguring links depending on application service requirements and network state
* Dynamic traffic switching at multiple layers: fiber, waveband, wavelength, packet (layer2), service (layer-3), as needed.
* Peer-to-peer based content delivery to help reducing the load on core networks (where peer-to-peer is used as a network strategy rather than as an individual user application)

The successful candidate will have an excellent academic record (i.e., first class honors and ideally a postgraduate qualification, e.g. M.Sc.) in Computer Science, Electronic engineering or related discipline. She/he will be highly motivated, with strong communication skills and excellent knowledge of C/C++ and Python programming languages.
The successful candidates will have knowledge and experience in one or more of the following areas:

* Routing and switching protocols (IP, Ethernet, GMPLS, BGP, OSPF)
* Optical switched networks
* Practical experience in testbed implementations
* Peer to peer networks

The Ph.D. Position is for 4 years duration, and fully funded by either SFI or IRCSET framework. It includes payment of academic fees and a tax-exempt annual stipend.
For application please send an updated CV with at least two references and motivation letter to:
