Coventry University is looking for a talented post-doctoral researcher to join our Faculty to undertake a lead role in the development of impactful IoT, sensing and embedded systems research activity.
As part of our research strategy, researchers in the Engineering, Environment and Computing Faculty are developing novel Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine Learning concepts and technologies to improve people's lives. Our team of leading academics has developed a significant portfolio of excellent and impactful research that delivers world-class results.
In the first instance, for the first two years of employment, the post-holder will contribute to the delivery of the EPSRC-funded HumanitarianEnergy for Displaced Populations in Refugee Camps and Informal Settlements(HELP) project (part of the RCUK Global Challenges Research programme) working to understand energy needs and providing new technical solutions for displaced populations in Rwanda and Nepal.

Upon successful delivery of the HELP project, the post-holder will move to a permanent lectureship position in IoT and Data Science within the School of Computing, Electronics and Mathematics in the Faculty of Engineering, Environment and Computing.
You should hold a PhD in a relevant Electronics or Computer Science subject, or have the relevant discipline or professional experience equivalent to a PhD demonstrating an ability to carry out independent research. You must be a highly proficient programmer and have prior research experience related to wireless sensing systems design and prototyping, embedded systems programming, data analysis and other aspects of IoT research and Machine Learning. Knowledge of experimental research methods and field deployment of wireless sensing systems is essential. You will also have strong project management and organisation skills, and have an ability to write up research for peer-reviewed publications and conferences.
You should be willing to conduct fieldwork and impact enhancing activities in Rwanda and Nepal refugee camps during the project life and work with camp authorities and NGOs to deploy the technical innovations designed by the project team.
Your academic development and progression to the lectureship will be supported through our Early Career Researcher support programmes and you will be offered opportunities to undertake some teaching and PhD supervision, alongside other researcher development activities. You will benefit from academic mentoring from the onset.
