Masters Scholarship: "Optimization of single-hop wireless data broadcast for large receiver populations"

Applications are invited for a Masters scholarship in the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering at the University of Canterbury (Christchurch, New Zealand) and in close collaboration with a Christchurch-based company. The successful applicant will spend half of their time with the department's network research group (NRG) and the other half with the participating company.

The potential scholarship lasts for one year and covers a stipend of 12,000NZD plus the tuition fees for one year of Masters studies at UoC.

Applicants are expected to hold a bachelor degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering. A solid background in wireless networking and good programming skills in C++ are required. Experience with discrete-event simulation (e.g. using OMNet++, QualNet, ns-2, ...) would be helpful.

Please submit your application by email to: no later than October 1, 2010. The application should include your academic transcript and a short CV.
