Ph.D. position at the Communication Systems Group, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden

ChalmersJob description

The candidate will join a research team whose current goal is to design autonomous and flexible wireless communication networks that achieve unprecedented network throughput. We use tools from information theory, communication theory, and applied mathematics to

  • develop accurate yet analytically tractable models for wireless communication networks
  • derive realistic fundamental limits on the throughput achievable on wireless communication networks when the cost of acquiring synchronization and network knowledge, and the limitations due to latency constraints are taken into account
  • devise novel communication strategies that optimally exploit network coordination.
The research objective for the Ph.D. student position is to assess the impact of channel uncertainty, imperfect synchronization, and transceiver impairments on the capacity of wireless communication networks. By means of information-theoretic tools, the candidate will determine the cost of acquiring network knowledge in wireless communication networks and devise communication strategies that maximize the effective data throughput, once the cost of acquiring network knowledge is accounted for.

Required qualifications

You should have a Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering, Engineering Physics, Applied Math, or similar, and high grades in the core courses. A strong background in mathematics is required; knowledge of information theory and wireless communication systems is an advantage as well as skills in simulation techniques. You should be fluent in English (both written and spoken), be an independent, proactive thinker with excellent collaborative skills, and be able to communicate your results in writing and in presentations.
