Job Description

About the job:

The Department of Electronic Systems (IES) has a vacancy for a Postdoctoral Researcher in statistical machine learning and distributed signal processing with applications in IoT. The successful candidate will be offered a three-year (3 years) appointment.

The position is linked to IoT@NTNU, a hub for IoT research at the Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering (IE), coordinated by IES. The project deals with big data, the internet of things (IoT), and artificial intelligence as critical enablers of IoT. In IoT, large volumes of data, often even personal data, are constantly gathered by numerous geographically dispersed sensors and devices, opening up a vast number of application areas that call for new approaches to data processing and inference. For example, concentrating the data at a central processing hub might be unfeasible due to constraints on the energy budgets of the data-collecting sensors/devices, the integrity of data holders, or the capacity of the communication channels. Thus, robust and privacy-preserving distributed or graph-based data processing over networks of machines/agents will be essential for performing data processing in future IoT-based applications. Examples of application areas of interest include but are not limited to, sensor fusion, health, smart cities, Industry 4.0, and environmental monitoring.

The postdoctoral research fellow will be affiliated with the IoT@NTNU and the Norwegian Open AI lab and collaborate with leading research scientists from international partner institutions. In addition, the hired candidate is to conduct research and possibly guide other students associated with the team. Therefore, preference will be given to candidates who can work independently and have a strong potential to build competence in advanced signal processing and machine learning methods with applications in IoT.

We search for candidates interested in these interdisciplinary tasks, and those with the best qualifications will be invited for an interview.


As a Postdoctoral Fellow (code 1352) you are normally paid from gross NOK 563 500 per annum before tax, depending on qualifications and seniority. From the salary, 2% is deducted as a contribution to the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund.
