  • Research experience in one or more of the following areas:
    • Software defined networks (SDN)
    • Computer networks
    • Network security
    • Network functions virtualization (NFV)
    • Network management
    • Cloud-native infrastructure
    • Data analytics and (applied) AI/machine learning
  • Hands-on experience with various network technologies, simulation and prototyping.
  • Strong programming skills in Python, C/C++, Go, or Java.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
Desired Qualifications

In addition to technical skills, the candidate must be highly motivated, can work independently, is an effective team player, and open to collaboration with others. Experience in some of the following is preferred:
