Deadline for applications(97 days ago)
Luleå University of TechnologyLuleå (Schweden)
Ph.D. student in Signal Processing
Ref 2321-2019 Lulea University of Technology is the northernmost University of Technology in Scandinavia with education in a wide variety of academic subjects. The Department of Computer Science, Electrical and Space Engineering hosts nine of these subjects, including the subject of Signal Processing. Current research in Signal processing takes place in the areas of measurement technology and flexible wireless
communication, both in close cooperation with industry. To strengthen our research in the field of flexible wireless communication, we are looking for a PhD student.Background
The Signal Processing group is engaged in research for next generation mobile networks, and in particular in the development of concepts and algorithms for mobile coverage and accessibility, reflected in topics as antenna systems, relays, spectrum, radio interference, energy, etc. We develop future radio access technologies that meet relevant mobile coverage requirements, along with emerging requirements that are relevant when machines and autonomous vehicles will be connected on a large scale.
The subject includes signal processing with emphasis on development and optimization of algorithms for processing single and multi-dimensional signals that are closely related to applications and applied research.
The work will be carried out within and financed by Arctic 5G Test Network, which is a collaborative research and innovation project within the Interreg North programme that LTU will start with the university of Oulu, Finland. The scientific theme of the research work is on localizing wireless terminals in the Internet of Things (IoT) with the help of emerging new learning algorithms often referred to as artificial intelligence. The work will have a perspective on cellular networks, 5G and beyond. Focus will be on understanding the potential brought by large-antenna arrays for the benefit of localizing the many cheap, energy-efficient mobile units (sensors, actuators, etc), along with the development of new localization algorithms. Project goals include testing, evaluating, and demonstrating potential of new algorithms in a newly developed test environment. Applications and use cases will be discussed with the companies involved in the research and innovation project Arctic 5G Test Network. The project will be carried out at Lulea University of Technology in Lulea.
We are looking for an ambitious and creative colleague who wants to contribute to cutting edge research in signal processing oriented towards the above profile area(s). The position as PhD candidate provides ample opportunity for interaction with industry, participation in academic conferences and experience from scientific publishing. The research will be carried out in collaboration with stakeholders outside the university.
A PhD student is primarily responsible for pursuing a doctoral education program with the goal to successfully defend a doctoral dissertation. The full-time position may include departmental service (usually teaching) with a volume of up to 20% of full time work
You are eligible according to the specifications in Section 39 of Chapter 7 of the Higher Education Ordinance, and you have an M.Sc. degree with specialization in signal processing,
wireless communications, mathematics or related topics. You have a strong interest and preferably experience in our above profile research area and communication and working in a
group comes naturally. See also the general curriculum:
