CRC 1053 MAKI – Multi-Mechanisms Adaptation for the Future Internet

What will the internet of the future look like? Which already known types of communication will remain, which new ones will have to be considered in addition? What additional challenges does the increasingly mobile use of the networks pose? To summarise: The challenge lies in a growing dynamism and range of variation in the framework conditions, in ever more diverse forms of use with constantly increasing quality demands and simple use of the variety of protocols. To meet this challenge, the Collaborative Research Centre 1053 “MAKI – Multi-Mechanisms Adaptation for the Future Internet”, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), is researching mechanisms in communication systems, their adaptation, interaction and ongoing optimisation as well as long-term further development.

The CRC MAKI is looking for several research assistants from January 2021 onwards, at the earliest possible point in time, who are highly committed in theory and practice and have a strong interest in shaping the Internet of the future with the aim of completing a doctorate.
