PhD/postdoc opportunities in the FORA European Training Network (4 
universities and 3 companies from Sweden, Denmark, Austria and Germany)

FORA: Fog Computing for Robotics and Industrial Automation (fora-etn.eu) 
is a European Training Network (ETN), which will fund and train 15 PhD 
candidates in the area of Fog Computing, during the period 2017-2021, 
see http://www.fora-etn.eu/about-fora/ Fog Computing, also sometimes 
called Edge Computing, brings the Cloud “closer to the ground”, to the 
edge of the network.

We’re looking for 15 PhD students and one postdoc: 
**Please forward this announcement to your colleagues and students.**

FORA’s research program focuses on: a reference system architecture for 
Fog Computing; resource management mechanisms and middleware for 
deploying mixed-criticality applications in the Fog; safety and security 
assurance; service-oriented application modeling and real-time machine 
learning, see http://www.fora-etn.eu/research-objectives/

The consortium is formed of 4 universities and 3 companies from Sweden, 
Denmark, Austria and Germany, and has associated partners also in 
Silicon Valley, USA. The partners in the project are: Technical 
University of Denmark (DTU),Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien), 
Mälardalen University (MDH), Technical University of Kaiserslautern 
(TUKL), TTTech, SYSGO and ABB. The associated partners: Danfoss Power 
Electronics (DANFOSS), Danish Technological Institute (DTI), UNIBAP, 
Volvo Construction Equipment and CISCO.

FORA was specifically designed to enhance the career prospects of the 
PhD candidates, giving them a great career in industry or academia. 
Alumni of MSCA ETNs are very positive about their experience: they 
benefit from the training, research, collaboration, research visits and 
networking in such a large ETN. FORA’s PhD candidates will receive 
integrated training across key areas (computer science, electrical 
engineering, control engineering, industrial automation, applied 
mathematics and data science) necessary to fully realize the potential 
of Fog Computing for Industry 4.0, see the benefits: 

FORA is looking for applicants with a wide variety of backgrounds: on 
computer science (algorithms), software engineering (Cloud Computing, 
service-oriented computing, middleware, distributed systems), computer 
engineering (hardware design and computer architecture) and industrial 
automation and control (distributed automation, robotics, control 
algorithms), as well as data science (machine learning).
