Post-doctoral fellowship in cognitive radio and cyber-security for IoT networks

15 Novembre 2021

Catégorie : Post-doctorant

IETR laboratory is looking for a postdoctoral researcher in the framework of the Cyber-IoT project funded by the DGA (french government defence technology agency) and Brittany region.



The position will be located in the city of Rennes (France) within the IETR, a university research laboratory in the field of electronics and digital technologies. The fixed term contract of 24 months is fully funded by the Cyber-IoT project.
The candidate shall comply with the mobility rules of the Brittany region and must have stayed at least 18 months outside France since May 1,2018.

Project description

The Cyber IoT Project is supported by a partnership involving the IETR and Lab-STICC laboratories. The project will focus on the following activities: intelligent spectrum access, transmitters localization and security of the radio link.
Intelligent spectrum access will address the inclusion of cognitive radio technologies in LoRaWan-type IoT networks using decentralized machine learning techniques.
Transmitter localization will use the combination of different types of data such as channel state information, received signal strength or time of arrival as well as synthetic generated data.
The security aspect will start from a study of attack scenarios in order to establish the vulnerabilities of civilian or military IoT networks. The objective will be to propose and evaluate physical layer solutions to improve the resilience of these systems.
These three thematics will be addressed using real and representative data produced by an experimental platform included in the framework of the project.
Skills and Qualifications
PhD in telecommunication engineering, electrical engineering, or a related field, digital signal processing, strong programming skills (python, C/C++...), with very good knowledge on wireless networks, IoT, LoRaWAN, cognitive radio and machine learning, ability to program software radio platforms in GNU Radio/C is a plus.
