Research Fellow Isense at Monash University

Monash University, Australia is inviting excellent candidates to apply for a postdoctoral position. Candidates are welcome before August 20, 2019.

Everyone needs a platform to launch a satisfying career. At Monash, we give you the space and support to take your career in all kinds of exciting new directions with access to quality research, infrastructure and learning facilities. We're a university full of energetic and enthusiastic minds, driven to challenge what's expected, expand what we know, and learn from other inspiring, empowering thinkers. Innovative, supportive, successful and with great breadth and depth of talent, Monash Information Technology is a leader in research and education. We provide an ideal environment in which to excel and are located in Melbourne, one of the world's most liveable cities.

As the Internet of Things (IoT) grows more prominent, and technology becomes ever more embedded in everyday life, the challenge becomes more pressing to ensure that this technological revolution is harnessed in ways that enhance liveability as much as possible. Monash University, in collaboration with Monash City Council, aims to be a part of the solution, with iSense Oakleigh - an integrated smart city precinct underpinned by advanced sensoring technologies and a data communications network.

This is an incredibly exciting project using existing technology in a new way. The network provides an IoT connected platform to sense, collect and analyse relevant data to improve liveability for the community within the precinct. The sensors and its platform will collect and fuse different data on mobility including vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians, as well as improve utilisation of public spaces such as on-street and off-street parking. Once captured, this data will be used in practical applications that will increase levels of service and efficiency, and ultimately greatly enhance the community.

The Research Fellow will focus on researching and creating novel prototype software to support the project. This will include working with the Chief Investigators Professor John Grundy and Professor Hai Vu; the Solution Architect; the technology providers; and MCC staff; to identify new council employee, business organisation and/or citizen digital solution requirements and designs, and help to identify and assess potential architectures and platforms that could be used for project solutions.

If you are enthusiastic at the prospect of taking on a ground-breaking challenge, we strongly encourage you to apply!
