It is open a call for one research fellowship at the “Institute of Systems and Robotics - University of Coimbra” (ISR-UC), in the framework of the project “SMITEn - Smart Meter Integrated Test Environment” (reference: SMITEn/2016/023613), project led by the “Critical Software, S.A.” company, having ISR-UC as participant, and co-financed by COMPETE 2020, Portugal 2020, and by the European Union through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Scientific area: Electrical and Computer Engineering, Informatics Engineering, Engineering Physics, or a related area.

Work plan: It will be performed research and development activities in the design of closed-loop smart metering simulators, with application to the domains of electricity and/or gas utilities.

Financial conditions: The amount of the grant is € 980,00 corresponding to the monthly compensation stipulated in the FCT table. The payment of the grant will be made by bank check or by bank transfer at the end of the month. To this value it is added the social security (Seguro Social Voluntário, first level contributions), in case the candidate chooses for its assignment, and personal accidents insurance.
