Postdoc scholarship position in Signal Processing, ref no LTU 5069-2022
The department of Computer Science, Electrical and Space Engineering at Luleå University of Technology (LTU) is offering a scholarship for a Postdoctoral Fellow to carry out research with the Signal Processing group. Current research in Signal Processing takes place in the areas of measurement technology and wireless communications, in close cooperation with industry. In our research we seek to understand how to infer information from measurement data and how to reliably convey such information from one place or time to another. We are looking for you who are ambitious and creative and who wants to contribute to cutting edge research.
Ever since the fourth-generation cellular networks large antenna arrays have been gradually and naturally incorporated. Large numbers of transmitting and receiving antennas improve the system’s spectral- and energy-efficiency, and the development continues today towards 6G systems. As a result of recent advances in material engineering, electronically configurable metasurfaces, densely composed of a large number of passive reflecting elements, can (adaptively) change the spatial characteristics of reflecting radio waves, and hence potentially improve a system's communication or sensing capabilities. The primary purpose of this research project is to delve into the fundamentals of high-resolution beamforming and specifically into the beamforming capabilities of non-uniform surface geometries governed by generalized impedance networks.
The funding of this scholarship and project is provided by the Kempe foundations.
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.
To qualify for a position as a postdoctoral research fellow, you must have a PhD, a doctoral degree or a foreign degree equivalent to a PhD or doctoral degree in signal processing or wireless communications or in related topics. Experience in machine learning and MATLAB programming is desirable. Candidates should have an excellent mastering of the English language, both orally and in writing.
A doctoral degree awarded no more than three years before the application deadline pro-vides a useful qualification. Candidates who have been awarded a doctoral degree at an earlier date may also be considered if there are special grounds, for example, different types of statutory leave of absence. Applicants who are very close to finishing a PhD are also encouraged to apply.
The postdoctoral fellowship is awarded for two years with placement in Luleå. The awarded scholarship recipient receives a scholarship of SEK 28 000 per month, which is higher than the average net income in the area. Starting date is according to agreement between the two parties.
