Doctoral student in 6G Wireless Networks for Connected Sky

School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at KTH

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

Project description

1 PhD position is available, which is partly connected with a European Celtic-Next project called "6G for Connected Sky". 6G for Connected Sky project aims at solutions to enable reliable and robust connectivity for aerial and ground users via flexible and adaptive network architecture adopting multiple technologies such as satellite and direct air to ground communication (DA2GC). In addition, this project focuses on novel wireless network design and management schemes in 3-dimensional (3D) space including different types of flying vehicles with their unique requirements. Another focus is to provide robust, low latency and/or high-capacity communications to ground users in the rural areas without any infrastructure via non terrestrial networks (NTNs).

The PhD position cover multi-disciplinary skills and at the end the student will develop knowledge and become expert covering the intersection of subset of these areas depending on the sub-topic: machine learning, communication systems, mobile networks, aerial communications and optimization. Research will be carried out at the Division of Communication Systems at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS). The division is located at the campus in Stockholm Kista, across the road from world-leading telecommunication companies. The research will be published in top-level journals and prepare you for a research career in academia and industry.

Third-cycle subject: Information and Communication Technology

Supervision: The doctoral students will be supervised by Cicek Cavdar and Emil Björnsson.
