Job description

Interconnected Resource-aware Intelligent Systems (IRIS) at Eindhoven University of Technology has the following Phd position on development of edge-AI for Internet-of-Things (IoT) based embedded health monitoring systems. Within this project, we will investigate joint development of distributed AI models and associated communication patterns that are resource efficient. The targeted AI models will take data from multiple sensors and will use user's devices (e.g., smartphone) as a smart hub to make more detailed analysis of user's data locally, without the need for sharing sensitive data, e.g., with a cloud service.

The successful candidate is expected to:
  • Perform scientific research in the domains described above.
  • Publish results at high-quality venues.
  • Collaborate with other group and faculty members.
  • Collaborate with selected academic and industrial partners.
  • Attend project meetings and contribute to deliverables and project outcome.
  • Assist with educational tasks (e.g. assist courses, co-supervise Master students).
