Postdoctoral position: Distributed Processing for Sensor Networks

Kelburn Campus

Applications are invited for a position as a postdoctoral researcher working with Prof Bastiaan Kleijn at Victoria University Wellington. The project, funded by the Royal Society's Marsden Fund, is to develop distributed processing algorithms that can perform tasks within unbounded sensor networks, with consideration to privacy. It is expected that microphone networks are a natural application area. The position is for one year, renewable for up to two and a half years.

Victoria University is located in Wellington, a compact, cosmopolitan city of 400,000 people. The campus is a short walk from downtown and the waterfront.


Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or related fields. The position requires experience in signal processing and/or machine learning along with a strong research track record. Prior experience in distributed processing will be helpful but is not required. A good understanding of information theory will be helpful.
