Research Assistant

A Research Assistant position is being recruited to join the EU H2020 NEAT (New, Evolutive API and Transport-layer architecture for the Internet) Project.

NEAT is a 36 Month European Union research project that is researching how to redefine the interface between the Internet applications and the network. The work is being done by a strong consortium of top industry players and leading academic centres (SRL, Mozilla, EMC, Cisco, University of Aberdeen, University of Oslo and Karlstads University). The new free open-source interface will allow Internet applications to be dynamically tailored to network capabilities (without them needing to be updated each time Internet technology changes). This is expected to lower the barrier to innovation and enable new applications to quickly adapt as the Internet technology continues to evolve.

Research Fellow

A Research Fellow position is linked to the EU MAMI (Measurement and Architecture for a Middleboxed Internet) Project.

Researchers at Aberdeen University are a part of MAMI, 30 month EU H2020 project led by ETH Zürich designed to re-architect the Internet do that it allows explicit cooperation between the networking equipment enabling appropriate in-network services to ease management and scalability of ever more demanding applications. We aim to restore balance among end-user privacy concerns in the face of pervasive surveillance, innovation in network protocols in the face of increasing ossification, and the provision of in-network functionality in a cooperative way. Aberdeen's work will develop innovative tools to measure Internet performance and research new algorithms and methods to solve the network problems.
