The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center (ITTC) at the University of Kansas is currently accepting applications for a full-time postdoctoral researcher. The preferred start date will be between 11/01/2021 – 12/31/2021. The Postdoctoral Researcher will join a project developing distributed spectrum sensing, source compression, data fusion, and spectrum intelligence.
Applications for postdoctoral researchers will be reviewed for consideration for a one-year research position (with possible extension based on performance and availability of funding). The specific nature of the planned research projects is proprietary, but may involve one or more of the following topical areas:
- Statistical signal processing
- Wireless communication & networking.
- Non-linear optimization
- Narrowband/wideband array signal processing
- Distributed spectrum sensing
- Compression and vector quantization
- Data fusion
- Time series analysis and machine learning.
Ideal candidates will have in-depth expertise in one or more of these areas, and will be able to effectively collaborate with team members working in the other topical areas.
This position is contingent upon funding and has an initial 1-year limited term with the possibility of renewal.
60% - Perform research on random vector quantization, source compression, distributed spectrum sensing, spectrum scenario fusion and learning, and testbed implementation.
20% - Develop technical reports, grant applications, and publications regarding research outcomes.
20% - Participate in group discussions, present research progress, meet with collaborators, and mentor graduate students.
NOTE: To be appointed at the Postdoctoral Researcher title, it is necessary to have the PhD conferred at the time of hire. Appointments made without a diploma or certified transcript indicating an earned doctorate are conditional hires and are appointed on an interim basis not to exceed 6-months. Upon verification of degree the appointment will be extended to its full duration.
