Two PhD Scholarship Positions on Beyond 5g/6g Within Eu Msca-itn-etn Semantic

Applications are invited for a PhD position in artificial intelligence to join Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. The funds for this position are available for five years. Applicants should apply before February 29, 2020.

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 these two PhD positions are 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, two PhD students will be recruited to perform world-class research on Low-complexity channel estimation & adaptive duplexing with massive MIMO in mm-wave bands (“ESR02”) and Application-aware design of forward-compatible non-orthogonal multiple-access transmission techniques (“ESR04”), respectively, for Beyond 5G/6G wireless systems. Major responsibilities 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 up to maximum 20 percent of full time. You will participate in interdisciplinary research on Beyond 5G/6G wireless systems. In particular, these two PhD student positions (“ESR02” and “ESR04”) are part of the European training network MSCA-ITN-ETNSEMANTIC” (end-to-end Slicing and data-driven automation of Next generation cellular networks with mobile edge Clouds): ESR02: Low-complexity channel estimation & adaptive duplexing with massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) in the mm-wave band. Objectives: i) Propose low-complexity channel estimation techniques for mm-wave bands using massive MIMO, ii) Study and propose novel techniques for the dynamic partitioning of uplink and downlink resources through adaptive duplexing in mm-wave bands, iii) Use Simulink to evaluate the performance of solutions. ESR04: Application-aware design of forward-compatible non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) transmission techniques. Objectives: i) Study orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM)/NOMA waveform coexistence and mixed numerology design beyond 5G/6G, ii) design innovative NOMA waveforms for multi-GHz and sub-THz communications that adapt to upper-layer traffic patterns and inherently support various link types, including integrated access and backhaul (IAB), iii) Assess performance in testbeds.

The appointments offer great research collaboration networks with academia and industry within both SEMANTIC and via Chalmers, as we have numerous ongoing collaborations with the internationally leading academic groups and industry.

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 positions can commence immediately.

- English certificate and grade (if available)

Attested copies and transcripts of completed education, grades and other certificates, eg. TOEFL test results.
