Opportunities in the Networking Research Groups (NRG)

There is evidence that universities and corporations sometimes disproportionately hurt the most marginalized people in society, including people of color, women, and LGBTQ+. I am a proud father of a family that is multilingual and multiculture. My research group is part of my extended family, so I strongly encourage applications from individuals that can continue to bring different experiences and perspectives, including those that represent marginalized communities.

Postdoc Positions

I am looking for a postdoctoral fellow with strong software engineering skills, and interest in computer networks, artificial intelligence, edge computing, software-defined infrastructures, and IoT.

The main postdoctoral fellow activity will consist in prototyping, building IoT testbed infrastructures using software and or hardware, help training graduate students and scholars, and support the research activities of the NSF active projects. Prof. Esposito's mentoring objectives are to provide a collaborative environment with the team of computer scientists, engineers, and scientists of other disciplines for the postdoctoral fellow successful career development. Aside from pure research, structured and informal mentoring activities will include career planning assistance, and opportunities to improve research and education abilities such as grant proposal writing, teaching, advising, peer networking and science writing/speaking communication.

The postdoc will be offered a competitive salary, fringe benefits, funding to support research travel, and access to the resources provided by the SLU Reinert Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning, a University-wide forum for the discussion of the knowledge, tools, and the spirit of inquiry that are central to teaching and learning processes.

Applicants must complete the requested application information and must also include the following as one pdf attachment:

  1. Cover letter

  2. Resume/Curriculum Vitae with a reference to all publications

  3. 2-page research statement: the first page should summarize past and current work, and the second page should focus on medium-long term research goals

Please email your cover letter, resume/CV, and research project proposal to flavio DOT esposito AT slu DOT edu.
