Research engineer emerging internet architectures

Your job will be to develop and experiment with protocol stacks of emerging internet architectures and their applications, setup an operational testbed with our Dutch research partners for this purpose, maintain a broad view on future internet initiatives worldwide and actively collaborate with a selected number of them, and develop the technical hooks to support various internet governance models. The job also involves sharing your results with the Internet community, for instance through open source software, presentations, and papers.

Emerging internet architectures is a new line of research at SIDN Labs and we’re looking for candidates who are able to largely autonomously drive the topic in a hands-on way and flesh out its technical direction. The work is about conducting applied research and you will need to intensely collaborate with peers of various backgrounds (data scientists, software engineers, operators, academics), both at SIDN Labs as well as with researchers at our research partners.

  • Fulltime: 38 hours a week
  • Ervaring: At least 4 years in collaborative research projects
  • Opleidingsniveau: M.Sc. in Computer Science or a related field. A Ph.D. is a plus
  • Salaris: € 2.987 - € 5.032 a 38 hour contract
