PhD Position in Network Automation for Integrated Terrestrial/Satellite Systems (m/f)

  • Ref: 50015365
  • Initial contract of 14 months, renewable for up to 36 months, with a further possible 1-year extension if required (full time 40 hours / week)
  • Employee and student status

The SIGCOM research group is headed by Prof. Symeon Chatzinotas and Prof. Björn Ottersten. The team focuses on signal processing for satellite/wireless communications/networking and radar applications.  The research on communications focuses on the formulation, modelling, design, and analysis of future communication networks (beyond 5G) that are capable of supporting new services in a cost efficient manner. In the B5G domain, SIGCOM addresses large antenna systems, multiuser MIMO systems, Non-orthogonal Multiple Access, radio resource management, mmWave beamforming, physical layer security, full duplex systems, wireless power transfer, software defined networking and network automation. In the satellite domain, SIGCOM addresses transceiver design, onboard processing, active antennas, multi-beam processing, optical communications, localization, spectrum monitoring and network performance optimization. The analysis is based on traditional statistical and optimization methods, as well as learning-assisted approaches for offline training and operational system monitoring/control. The communication activities are supported by CommLab, which exploits Software Defined Radios for fast prototyping and demonstration.
