About the position

We have a vacancy for a PhD position in signal processing for 5G and beyond massive MIMO communication system at the department of manufacturing and civil engineering at NTNU.

To meet the demands on the increasing data rate and massive wireless access, the next generation wireless systems (5G and beyond) are designed to use massive MIMO systems and small cell technology with high frequency bands. In fact, Massive MIMO is becoming the mainstream feature for future cellular networks, and in few years, it will be deployed “everywhere”.


In addition to communication purposes, future massive MIMO antenna systems are anticipated to have an additional environmental sensing capability. This PhD project will develop new signal processing techniques for massive MIMO systems with dual communication and sensing capabilities. The position is part of a research project financed by the Research Council of Norway under the Scientific Renewal Program. The successful PhD candidate will work on designing new signal processing techniques for dual functional massive MIMO systems.  

The candidate will report to the Head of department.
