Atomic Topology Management of Wireless Sensor Networks: Postgraduate opportunities  

The goal of this project is to explore the structural and behavioural similarities that exist between the chemical constitution of natural substances and WSN (Wireless Sensor Network) topology. It builds on Atomic Topology Management (AToM), which uses concepts like WSN electron, WSN nucleus, WSN photon, and WSN atom to model sensor node, base station, message and basic WSN subset consisting of one base station and several sensor nodes. The project aims to build on this analogy between sensor networks and atomic structures towards acheiving a better understanding and representation of these networks

For this project, the PRISM group is seeking candidates for a postgraduate position. The ideal candidate will have a Bachelors degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a similar field as well as a good understanding of chemistry concepts.

Interested candidates should send their CV and cover letter to:
