We are offering a postdoc position to work on the unacloud project.

Unacloud implements an Infrastructure as a Service cloud model oriented to the provision of computing resources for the development of scientific projects based on a commodity underlying infrastructure. It implements opportunistic design concepts to provide the unused capabilities of desktop computer laboratories.

In such context unacloud provides a best effort approach and executions are subject to the rather unexpected behavior of the end user sitting on front of a desktop computer. In this postdoc project we want formalize much of the model and to explore different approaches to enhance the unacloud service model, in order to enforce SLAs (Software Level Agreements). Availability prediction models, migration approaches are all topics to be explored.

Competitive salary depending on the experience of the candidate. The position starts with a 12 month contract, renewable for 2 years.

A recent Ph.D in Computer Science,  Computer Engineer or similar fields is required as well as a record of publications. Day to day activities happen in Spanish but English is accepted as the working language.
