(PresseBox) ( London, )
NEC Laboratories Europe (NLE), together with its research partners, has launched the EU-funded project METRICS, where NLE will conduct joint research with top universities and industrial research centers in Europe on the topic of big data analytics for telecommunications networks.

METRICS is one of the Marie Curie Actions' Initial Training Network project which aims to offer early-stage researchers the opportunity to improve their research skills, join established research teams and enhance their career prospects. As a part of METRICS project, NLE will provide one PhD position and one post-doc position for research communities to accelerate its research on systems and algorithms for real-time mining of large data sets.

The METRICS research areas include high speed fixed network measurement, large-scale mobile network active and passive measurement, data centre measurement, data analysis and modeling, quality of experience, privacy-preserving sharing of traffic measurements, measurements to assess the impact of machine-to-machine traffic and measurement enhanced network management.

METRICS invites applications for 13 PhD positions and one post-doc position, and will give each of its candidates the unique opportunity to experience working for a varied set of institutions, both in academia and industry. The candidates will experience different research environments and different supervisors. In addition to their host institution, METRICS candidates will spend a period of three months at another METRICS partner, and three months at least in one of the METRICS associate partner institution.

"Coming into direct contact with a number of world-renowned researchers in the field will not only contribute to a high-quality training experience, but will also form important links crucial to the candidates' future professional career. This represents a unique environment for young researchers interested in Internet Measurement," said Heinrich Stüttgen, Vice President NEC Laboratories Europe, NEC Europe Ltd.
