Jobs @ CSE


Position for system and network administrator

Looking for a bright and motivated person with BTech in CS/IT, MCA having two years of working experience in CS/IT industry/academia to manage our department's computing services. A good understanding of enterprise networking and OS (Linux/Windows) is required. Experience with system management and multiple scripting languages such as perl and bash are desirable.

The job involves system and network administration with management of large infrastructure with around 300+ number of desktop/server machines and many centralized system services, networked with shared storage across several rooms and labs.

We provide a flexible working environment with abundant opportunity to learn and grow. Depending on qualifications, there will be possibility of higher degree as well.

Submit application with detailed CV thru email latest by 30th June 2016.

Post doctoral openings in high performance computing

Applications are invited for two post doctoral fellowships in the department of Computer Science and Engineering at IIT Delhi in the general area of high performance computing. A PhD in computer science or an area of science or engineering with a strong computational component is required. The qualifying candidate should have significant experience with parallel algorithms, parallel programming paradigms, performance analysis and tuning as well as with tools like OpenMP, MPI, OpenCL/CUDA, VTunes, Paraview, etc. Familiarity with computational tools like GROMACS, NAMD, WRF, Ansys/Fluent, etc. would be an advantage. The fellow will have many opportunities to collaborate with and computationally enhance researchers in domains like CFD, molecular dynamics, climate modeling, bio-informatics and several others. Other than research in HPC, the fellow will be expected to lead short courses and training program for computational science and engineering researchers.

Network systems for developing regions

We are doing several projects in the ACT4D group:

1. Internet measurements: We are doing a large scale collection of Internet measurement data from rural areas, urban broadband networks, and 2G/3G cellular data services. Research activities will involve the development of bandwidth probing tools on different types of networks, deployment strategies to set up measurement points, data collection and analysis to discover network design issues and transport protocol modifications that can improve performance. Candidates should have a talent to write robust code, enjoy quick scripting to analyze traces, and have a very good understanding of network protocols and their implementation.

2. Media for low-income communities: While the developed world has access to Facebook and Youtube, rural and low-income poorly literate populations do not have avenues to voice their opinions, demands, and connect to government agencies. What kind of technologies can be used by such populations? We have worked with voice-based IVR tools, community radio, mobile video sharing, etc, to enable such linkages. Research activities involve the development and evaluation of different kinds of user interfaces that can make participation easier, extension of these ideas to smartphones and low-cost tablets, etc. Candidates should be creative to design good interfaces, enjoy travel and interaction with rural communities, have a good knowledge of statistics, be very good at writing robust code, and have an extensive general knowledge of government schemes and the social development sector.

3. Online news and social media analysis: We are interested in a number of things related to news and social media. Can we mine news articles to discover "suspicious" networks between politicians, industry, media, etc? Which news sources or blogs provide access to diverse viewpoints on controversial topics, and how does this compare with social media such as Twitter? Can we write applications to understand news consumption behavior of people -- do they like diverse news, do they get complete information from the sources they normally access, how many articles do they read per day, how much effect does sensational news have on the news reading habits, etc? Candidates should be quick at writing applications, be comfortable with handling large databases, enjoy keeping track of the latest technological trends and research, and have experience with data mining and machine learning.

Following are the kind of skills we are looking for:
- Computer science or electronics BTech/MTech having done courses and projects in computer networks, operating systems, and design patterns
- Expertise in Java, Perl, Python, and shell scripting
- Very comfortable on Linux
- Familiarity with Asterisk, GStreamer, 802.11, and network administration is a plus
- Ability to quickly master unfamiliar tools and technologies
- Good English writing skills
- Eager to read and write research papers
- Feels excited about traveling to remote rural locations and interacting with the people.

All projects will require reading a lot of background material, thinking, and implementation. So make sure you like all these things when you apply! Please write to Aaditeshwar Seth if you are interested.    



Wireless networks

Project staff positions are available for the project titled "SPARC: Spectrum Aware Rural Connectivity".

In this proposed project, we will design and implement a wireless multi-hop network which exploits vacant licensed spectrum in the sub-GHz TV band to provide broadband connectivity to rural areas. Our goal will be to keep the network low-cost and robust to node failure and power outages which are likely to occur in rural areas. Specific objectives of the project are: (i) designing a low-cost spectrum-aware wireless mesh network for long-distance rural backhaul, (ii) developing high-performance but low-cost software defined radio prototypes for the sub-GHz band, (iii) devising new protocols that follow spectrum etiquette between devices using potentially different wireless standards, (iv) characterizing spectrum usage and determining optimal allowed transmit power for secondary users in the rural Indian context, and finally, (v) integration of this research on IIT campus testbeds, with a proof of concept demonstration in Indian rural locations.

Details about project positions can be found at: Open Positions (Interview date: April 2, 2012).
