PhD Position in Wireless Communications and Networking (m/f)

Ref: 50014756 / R-STR-5010-00-B
Fixed Term Contract up to 3 years in total, pending satisfaction of progress milestones (CDD)
Full time basis (40hrs/week)

Your Role
Future generation of wireless communications' systems will make a large use of novel techniques to efficiently manage the available resources like Dynamic Beamforming. Dynamic Beamforming is enable by the latest development on the large scale active antenna arrays and it allow to efficiently and dynamically re distribute the system resources according to the variations of the traffic demand, with the user link being intelligent focus the active antennas towards the areas with high traffic demand or to follow mobile terminal. In this context we aim to develop an hardware demonstrator based on Software Defined Radio (SDR) in order to demonstrate this new digital signal processing technique

The successful candidates will join a strong and motivated research team lead by Prof. Björn Ottersten and Prof. Symeon Chatzinotas in order to carry out research in order to pursue a PhD on the following topics:

Dynamic beam-forming design
In-band signaling
Implementation of an hardware demonstrator using SDR
The position holder will be required to perform the following tasks:

Carrying out research in the predefined areas
Disseminating results through scientific publications
Participating in proposal drafting
Assisting in organization of relevant workshops
For further information, please contact us at

Your Profile
Qualification: The candidate should possess an MSc degree or equivalent in Electronic Engineering, Computer Science or Applied Mathematics.

Experience: The ideal candidate should have some knowledge and experience in a number of the following topics:

Signal processing for wireless communications
Physical Layer aspects of satellite communication
and be familiar with the principles of

Wireless Communication Standards (IEEE 802.11, 3GPP, DVB)
Precoding Techniques
Dynamic Beam Forming Techniques
Resource Allocation Techniques
Development skills in Labview, MATLAB and C++ are required.

Language Skills: Fluent written and verbal communication skills in English are required.

We offer
The University offers a Ph.D. study program with a Fixed Term Contract up to 3 years in total, pending satisfaction of progress milestones (CDD), on full time basis (40hrs/week. The University is an equal opportunity employer. You will work in an exciting international environment and will have the opportunity to participate in the development of a newly created university.

Further Information

Application should include:

Full CV, including list of publications and name (and email address, etc) of three referees
Transcript of all modules and results from university-level courses taken
Research statement and topics of particular interest to the candidate (300 words)
All qualified individuals are encouraged to apply.

Deadline for applications: November 1st, 2019

However, prospective applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible since the hiring process is reviewed continuously until filled.
