Dear all,

the activity of the Web of Things Working Group is slowly coming to an end (with great results in my opinion). The unification that WoT standards offers at the application level allows applications to be developed at a significantly larger scale than today, which brings challenging research questions.

As you may know, I have been mostly working within the Working Group on the relationship between the WoT Thing Description model and Linked Data. We, at the university of FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg, are working on the self-organizing behavior of Linked Data agents to execute various automation tasks. And we have opened a PhD position on that topic:

"The general context of the thesis is Web science & Linked Data, with applications in the Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical Systems. The candidate will carry out research into how core Web principles like hyperlinks and hypermedia control can be leveraged to design self-organizing systems composed of sensing and actuating agents. Both simulated and real-world setups will be available for experiments. The candidate will get the opportunity to work with a variety of computing platforms, from micro-controllers to high-end server racks. Emphasis will be put on implementation and practical aspects of research, provided rigorous experimental design and analysis. The candidate may also get involved in teaching activities on Linked Data-related topics."

You are welcome to disseminate this offer to master's students in computer science or related fields. Applicants are asked to send cover letter, CV and transcripts to wiso-ti-sekretariat@fau.de.

Post-doctoral researcher
