Information about the research/the project/the division
Chalmers University of Technology is located in Gothenburg on the scenic west coast of Sweden. It is among the top research schools in Europe. The research environment is international, and English is the working language.
Chalmers has a long tradition of international research in wireless communications in close collaboration with top international academia as well as both local and international telecommunications and automotive industry. A large part of such research is performed at the Department of Electrical Engineering (E2), where this PhD student position is announced. E2 is engaged in both fundamental and applied research, spanning a large variety of research areas including Communication Systems and Information Theory, Signal Processing and Antennas, Automatic Control, Automation, Mechatronics, and Biomedical Engineering. Cross-disciplinary research is central and encouraged through projects across different groups within the Department.
The Communication Systems Group employs around 35 people, including 8 faculty and 25 PhD students, and is active in a wide range of topics in digital communication. These include 5G, Beyond 5G and 6G wireless systems, hardware-constrained communication, positioning, vehicular communications, fiber-optical communication, and modern coding and modulation.
In this research environment, a PhD student will be recruited to perform world-class research on multi-antenna systems for Beyond 5G and 6G wireless systems.
Your major responsibility as a PhD student is to pursue your own doctoral studies, where around 75% is research and approximately 25% graduate courses. You are expected to develop your own scientific concepts and communicate the results of your research (verbally and in writing) in major journals and conferences. You will also attend research projects meetings, where you will present your own work and establish useful contacts with other researchers. In addition, the position also includes teaching on undergraduate and MSc level, or other departmental duties, of maximum 20% of full time.
You will participate in interdisciplinary research projects on Beyond 5G and 6G wireless systems with a focus on multi-antenna systems for wireless access/backhaul/fronthaul at mm-wave and (sub-)THz spectrum bands. The appointment offers a great research collaboration network within both academia and industry as we have numerous ongoing collaborations with the internationally leading academic groups and industry. In particular, you will be working within the ChaseOn antenna systems excellence center at Chalmers.
After completing PhD studies at Chalmers University of Technology, you will be in great demand from Swedish as well as international industry, and you will have an excellent basis for further academic research as well. Candidates with any nationality are welcome to apply.
The position can commence immediately.
The position as a PhD student at Chalmers University of Technology is a full-time temporary employment,
with a competitive monthly salary and full social benefits. There are no tuition fees for PhD studies at Chalmers. The position is limited to a maximum of five years.
By the starting date, you should have a Master of Science degree in a relevant field such as Electrical Engineering, Engineering Physics, Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Communications or similar.
Mandatory qualifications: digital communications, stochastic processes, signal processing, excellent English communication skills (spoken and written), programming. Advantageous qualifications: wireless communication, information theory, machine learning, artificial intelligence and skills in simulation techniques. You should have high grades in the core courses and a strong interest to pursue research in wireless communications. Knowledge of mobile communications systems, multiple antenna, resource allocation, access, fronthaul, and backhaul techniques are meritorious.
You must be creative and have the interest to work in industrial and international collaboration environments and the ability to present your ideas and research results to researchers and engineers with different backgrounds. Previous experiences in research, publications, and teaching are also advantageous. If Swedish is not your native language, you are encouraged to learn it during your employment. Chalmers offers Swedish courses.
Chalmers continuously strives to be an attractive employer. Equality and diversity are substantial foundations in all activities at Chalmers.
