The Traffic Resources Modeling department at Orange Labs Networks invites applications for a post-doc fellowship in the context of an internal research project devoted to optimization tools for sustainable development.
A Content Delivery Network (CDN) consists of a set of servers and caches that are strategically deployed in the network so as to deliver high quality contents (e.g. video) to end-users. Some studies are conducted in the department, and in the literature, to optimize the placement of caches in the network, while improving the quality of service of content delivery. In this context, the purpose of the fellowship is to analyze and to model optimization problems related to the minimization of the energy consumption of such networks, which is a recent, and increasing, trend in network design.
The candidate will investigate approaches where real traffic data are used (within simulation tools or analytical models), either as input parameters in the optimization models, or as scenarios to validate the output solutions. The combined approaches should allow tackling realistic situation and deriving operational solutions.
The research will be conducted within the Traffic Resources Modeling (TRM) department in close collaboration with several optimization and performance evaluation experts.
The start date is: asap
Applications should consist of a resume, a short research statement and up to 3 contacts persons that could act as references. The applications should be sent to: eric.gourdin at orange.com
Profile: the candidate should have defended her/his Ph.D. within less than one year.
