About the position

Position as Postdoctoral Research Fellow in data stream processing and privacy protection available at the Department of Informatics.

The fellowship period is 3 years and devoted to carrying out a project entitled (Parrot: Privacy Engineering for Real-Time Analytics in Human-Centred Internet of Things). Depending on qualification and interest, the Department might fund a fourth year for a compulsory work load of 25% (over four years) that may consist of teaching, supervision duties, and research assistance.

No one can be appointed for more than one Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the University of Oslo. Starting date as soon as possible.


Job description / Project description / Development plan:

This PhD Fellowship is part of the Logg inn for å se kontaktinformasjon funded by the research Council of Norway. The Parrot project is an international collaboration between the University of Oslo (Norway) and the Technical University of Darmstadt (Germany). The application domain of Parrot is in human-centred IoT (including participatory sensing and mHealth), which are especially prone to privacy issues. The goal of Parrot is to develop privacy engineering solutions to the benefit of all stakeholders in the value chain on these systems, i.e., data subjects, application developers, service providers and service users. This means to (1) provide data subjects with the requested level of privacy protection, (2) relieve application developers from the burden of implementing privacy protection, and (3) take care that privacy protection does not hamper the data quality and assures by this the usefulness of the service for (real-time decision making of) service users.

Scientific and technical challenges that are addressed in this research project include:

  • Expressing and matching of privacy concerns of end-users and data quality requirements for data analytic.
  • Characterizing privacy protecting mechanisms in terms of protection level and impact onto data quality.
  • (Semi-)automatic rewriting of queries for Complex Event Processing (CEP) systems and automatic placement of operator graphs in distributed (mobile) CEP systems under security and privacy concerns.
  • Design and implementation of a fully decentralized and trustworthy overlay for distributed CEP systems.
  • Experimental and empirical evaluation of solutions developed in the project.

Postdoctoral fellows who are appointed for a period of four years are expected to acquire basic pedagogical competency in the course of their fellowship period within the duty component of 25 %.

The main purpose of a postdoctoral fellowship is to provide the candidates with enhanced skills to pursue a scientific top position within or beyond academia. To promote a strategic career path, all postdoctoral research fellows are required to submit a Logg inn for å se kontaktinformasjon no later than one month after commencement of the postdoctoral period.
