Research Opportunities

Post Summary
Novel optical access and metro networks are essential to support fast growing capacity requirement, driven by future applications and services for 6G and beyond. Networks are also 
evolving to support a large variety of signals across larger access and metro network areas. For these novel scenarios, flexibility becomes an essential feature, driven by the development of flexible components and open networks. These however require the development of intelligent control planes to autonomously manage network requests, maintaining high availability and optimal resource utilization.

One Post Doctoral researcher position is available for work in the area of Optical Spectrum as a Service. The scope is to use intelligent AI driven algorithms to enable shared fibre services, where a network operator might lease fibre spectrum to third parties. The work will involve the development of models and control plane actions to detect impairments generated by any of the parties and act on the offending signals to minimise its effect on the other services. The work will be developed around open optical systems and software defined networks 
control planes and will include both access and metro networks. The applicants should have a solid theoretical background on machine learning and optical networks and experience in testbed-oriented research. The work will be carried out in the new OpenIreland research infrastructure, a large-scale testbed for experimentation in optical, wireless and cloud technologies.


The position will be based in the CONNECT research centre at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, funded primarily by Science Foundation Ireland and ESB Ireland, but can involve other national, European projects. The researcher will also be part of the School of Computer Science and Statistics in TCD. 


The position will be under the direction of Prof. Marco Ruffini and Prof. Dan Kilper.

 

Person Specification

The appointable candidate will hold a PhD, preferably in a Computer Science or Electronic Engineering or related discipline (preferably with a few months of postdoctoral experience.

 

Application Procedure

Applicants should submit a full Curriculum Vitae to include the names and contact details of 2 
referees (including email addresses), to: Pat Kelly/Agnes Gogan  Email Address fellowhsips@connectcentre.ie

DESCRIPTION: The postdoctoral researcher role will undertake research into the appropriate use of Generative AI (e.g. ChatGPT type approaches) with respect to knowledge graph applications within the Transparent Digital Governance strand. Such possible usages include: the identification of data items for uplift into a knowledge graph; knowledge graph link prediction and completion; support of normal user (non-knowledge engineer) interactions with the knowledge graphs. Concrete use cases are available in ADAPT projects such as the Virtual Records Treasury of Ireland (virtualtreasury.ie) and the ERC VOICES (voicesproject.ie) projects at the very least. The output would include advisory documents and training materials for researchers in the Transparent Digital Governance strand in ADAPT, and a conference paper at a venue in the generative AI or semantic web communities.SALARY SCALE: SFI Level 2B Point 1: €50,539CLOSING DATE:   February 9, 2024FULL DETAILS AND APPLICATION LINK: https://www.adaptcentre.ie/careers/postdoctoral-researcher-in-generative-ai-knowledge-graphs/
