Postdoc Position in Electrical and Information Technology with A Focus on Vehicular Communication

Lund University is offering postdoctoral scholar position in wireless communication. This position is available for 2 years in the first instance. Applications are invited up to November 30, 2018.

LTH forms the Faculty of Engineering at Lund University, with approximately 9 000 students. The research carried out at LTH is of a high international standard and we are continuously developing our teaching methods and adapting our courses to current needs.

Subject description

Wireless connectivity in cars is no longer mainly about traditional infotainment. The use of wireless communication in vehicles is growing rapidly and is a key technology to increase road safety and efficiency. For accurate performance predictions, it is necessary to consider the whole system, including the influence of the surrounding environment, other vehicles, the networking stack and the application. V2X communication will rely on different underlying communication technologies. In order to make realistic assessment of the performance and study the complementary behavior of, e.g. 802.11p and LTE, and possibly C-V2X it is necessary to be able to make detailed and simultaneous simulation studies, including the whole network chain and proper temporal behavior.

In the project we will work with a simulation framework (based on OmNET++, SUMO, Veins, and Plexe) for system and application level simulations where detailed models of the environment and antenna arrangements are used, parts of the communication system that are vital but also very specific in vehicular environments. We will develop cluster based channel models based on realistic environment descriptions achieved from detailed map data. To complement existing models in the literature, especially when it comes to directional properties in the considered scenarios, we will perform directional channel measurements in some selected scenarios.

Work duties

The main duties involved in a post-doctoral posistion is to conduct research. Teaching may also be included, but up to no more than 20% of working hours. The position shall include the opportunity for three weeks of training in higher education teaching and Learning.

Qualification requirements

Appointment to a post-doctoral position requires that the applicant has a PhD, or an international degree deemed equivalent to a PhD, within the subject of the position, completed no more than three years before the last date for applications. Under special circumstances, the doctoral degree can have been completed earlier.

Assessment criteria and other qualifications

This is a career development position primarily focused on research. The position is intended as an initial step in a career, and the assessment of the applicants will primarily be based on their research qualifications and potential as researchers. Particular emphasis will be placed on research skills within the subject.

Consideration will also be given to good collaborative skills, drive and independence, and how the applicant's experience and skills complement and strengthen ongoing research within the department, and how they stand to contribute to its future development.

This is a full-time, fixed-term employment of a maximum of 2 years. The period of employment is determined in accordance with the agreement "Avtal om tidsbegrnsad anstllning som postdoktor" ("Agreement on fixed-term employment as a post-doctoral fellow") between Lund University, SACO-S, OFR/S and SEKO, dated 4 September 2008.

Instructions on how to apply

Applications shall be written in English. Please draw up the application in accordance with LTH's Academic qualifications portfolio - see link below. Upload the application as PDF-files in the recruitment system.
