[We apologize in advance if you receive multiple copies of this message]


This call for interest is announced in the framework of the project “Space Internetworking Center” with the acronym SPICE (Grant Agreement Number 264226) which is funded by “Capacities” of the FP7 Seventh Framework Programme. The project is approved as a “Coordination and Support Action” under the “Research Potential” Scheme and has a duration of three years (01/09/10-31/8/13).



Internetworked Systems Laboratory (InterSys Group) has made significant contributions to the architectural requirements, objectives standardization and prototyping of future Space Internetworking strategy. InterSys Group is a leading group in Europe in Space Internetworking, participates in the Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems and in several other European Bodies. The Internetworked Systems Laboratory has a total funding of around 4 million Euros. The Project Coordinator, Vassilis Tsaousidis, is a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of Democritus University of Thrace, Greece and the Director of Internetworked Systems Laboratory.

SPICE relies on three major objectives: to broaden the group’s accomplished research innovation and engineering capacity both by mobilizing resources to visit first-class cooperating European institutions and hiring top class researchers from abroad; to support a revolutionary scientific agenda, as far as Delay Tolerant Networking is concerned, that boosts European competitiveness and supports a wide spectrum of applications; and to institutionalize and establish a permanent quality framework for innovative research activities in the convergence region of Thrace. Apart from the required infrastructure update, SPICE aims at promoting research through the publication of special issues in high-quality journals, the organisation of regular lectures and presentations from distinguished scientists, as well as the hosting of a panel session and two workshops on promising networking technologies, such as 4G communications.



In the framework of SPICE project we invite applications for a team of scientists as follows:


1. Two senior researchers from abroad to work at the Space Internetworking Center (Xanthi, Greece) and be responsible for “the design of application-transport-routing protocols for SPACE and, in general, delay tolerant communications”.

Vacancies duration: the term of the appointment will be for one year starting no later than March 2011 with an option for extension.

Job Requirements:

■            Computer engineering or computer science degree

■         Ph.D. Degree, preferably in the fields of computer networks or computer architecture or telecommunications

■            Excellent knowledge of English language (speak, read and write fluently).

Experience in designing space communication protocols or protocols for delay tolerant networks is desirable. The evaluation of all candidates will be based on their experience, relevance of studies and research accomplishments.


2. Experienced technical personnel for the administration of the Space Internetworking Center. Job Requirements:

■            Computer engineering or computer science degree

■            Knowledge of TCP/IP protocol stack

■            Experience in designing/implementing internetworked systems.



Salary depends on qualifications. Maximum gross annual salary is 40.000€. Accommodation cost in Xanthi is relatively low (for example typical apartment with two bedrooms costs 300€-350€).



Equal opportunities policy without distinctions (sex, origin, religion, disability, age etc) will be applied.



Interested applicants should send their curriculum vitae using the Europass standard including:

■            An application letter

■            A research statement

■            A synopsis of research experience

■            A list of publications

■            The names of three referees

by e-mail to vtsaousi@ee.duth.gr.


Please use the following reference in the subject: SPICE_RESEARCHERS_2010. Please note that an acknowledgement e-mail will be sent upon receipt of each application within 3 working days.


An interview may be asked by the Project Coordinator, in case this is deemed necessary. Selected candidates should provide:

■            Original documents (or official translations) of Degrees

■            Original documents (or official translations) of working experience certificates

■            Three letters of reference.



Initial deadline for receipt of e-mail: 20/11/2010

However applications will be accepted until positions are filled.

Candidates will be evaluated based on their qualification by a Scientific Committee.
