The Future Internet will integrate large-scale systems constructed from the composition of thousands of distributed services, while interacting directly with the physical world via sensors and actuators, which compose the Internet of Things.
InterSCity researchers seek to apply novel Computer Science and Technology techniques to tackle urban social problems in underprivileged neighborhoods and low-income populations, leveraging existing data and collecting and analyzing new datasets to support Evidence-based Public Policymaking.
The InterSCity project seeks post-doctoral researchers that have already demonstrated a good capacity of producing high-quality research with publications in top international journals and conferences. If you believe you fall into this description and are interested in working with us, apply for a position in the InterSCity Project.
