We are seeking a Postdoctoral Scholar focused on Internet performance and measurement to work closely with Nick Feamster, Neubauer Professor of Computer Science and Faculty Director of Research at the UChicago Data Science Institute. The Internet Equity Initiative is a major interdisciplinary research initiative, funded by Data.org, focused on addressing the issue of Internet access by using large-scale Internet measurement and data science to help communities and stakeholders to better assess the quality and accessibility of broadband Internet access.
If interested, please submit a resume/CV and cover letter to Professor Feamster at feamster @ uchicago.edu.
The Internet Equity Initiative is looking to hire a part-time research assistant (RA) for a network performance project in collaboration with the Chicago Area Broadband Initiative (CABI). The RA will help our team evaluate CABI’s wireless community network testbed at the Overton Incubator and develop a network health dashboard. The network consists of a point-to-point 60 GHz radio and a few WiFi access points. Our goal is to understand the performance of different network components by analyzing data collected from multiple vantage points.
The ideal candidate would have an interest in developing innovative solutions to bridge the digital divide in urban communities. This position would be for Summer 2022 and based at the University of Chicago. The hourly rate is $16-18/hr for undergraduate RAs and $20-25/hr for graduate RAs, and the start date is by June 13, 2022.
