OFFER DESCRIPTION

The University of Luxembourg is seeking to hire a highly motivated and an outstanding researcher in the area of optimization performance of interference-limited wireless communication systems for its Interdisciplinary Centre of Security and Trust (SnT), within the Signal Processing and Communications (SigCom) research group, led by Prof. Björn Ottersten and Dr. Symeon Chatzinotas.

SnT carries out interdisciplinary research in secure, reliable and trustworthy ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) systems and services, often in collaboration with governmental, industrial and international partners.  SnT is active in several national projects funded by National Research Fund (FNR) and local industries, and international research projects funded by the EU FP7 programme, H2020 programme and the European Space Agency (ESA). For further information, you may check: www.securityandtrust.lu

The SigCom research group carries out research activities in the areas of signal processing for wireless communication systems including satellite communications and radar systems, and is currently expanding its research activities in exploring several emerging use cases of next generation wireless communications systems. For details, you may refer to the following: https://wwwen.uni.lu/snt/research/sigcom

We’re looking for people driven by excellence, excited about innovation, and looking to make a difference. If this sounds like you, you’ve come to the right place!

Your Role...

The successful candidates are expected to perform the following tasks:

  • Analyzing and investigating methods that provide high performance over interference-limited wireless communication systems
  • Developing novel optimization-based techniques/algorithms as well as low-complexity sub-optimal solutions proving the trade-off between complexity and performance
  • Implementing and developing a software and/or hardware testing environment to compare and evaluate the proposed techniques
  • Disseminating results through scientific publications and conferences
  • The candidates are expected to actively contribute to the different research projects, either coordinating technical contribution and/or preparing project deliverables
  • Preparing new research proposals to attract industrial, national and European projects
  • Providing assistance in the supervision of PhD students
Your Profile...
  • A PhD degree in Telecommunication Engineering, or Electrical Engineering or Computer Science/engineering with a focus on wireless communications
  • International experience is desirable
  • Sound publication track record in relevant international conferences and top journals in some of the following research areas:
    • Multi-antenna signal processing, e.g. beamforming/precoding
    • Radio resource management, e.g. power/bandwidth assignment, scheduling
    • Radio access technologies
    • Interference Management, Detection and/or Classification
    • Quantum Computing
  • Experience with a number of optimization tools and typical convexification strategies
  • Experience with machine learning is a plus
  • Strong programming skills in MATLAB. Python, JULIA, C++, HDL (VHDL, Verilog, HLS, etc.) are desirable but not mandatory
  • Experience of working with industrial projects or public funded research projects is highly desirable.
  • Desirable but not mandatory: Hands-on implementation and testing of AI-accelerated signal processing with dedicated hardware (GPU, FPGA, AI chipsets: Versal AI, Jetson TX2, Movidius Myriad, etc.)
  • Highly committed, excellent team-worker, and strong critical thinking skills
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English
Here’s what awaits you at SnT...
  • Exciting infrastructures and unique labs. At SnT’s two campuses, our researchers can take a walk on the moon at the LunaLab, build a nanosatellite, or help make autonomous vehicles even better
  • The right place for IMPACT. SnT researchers engage in demand-driven projects. Through our Partnership Programme, we work on projects with more than 45 industry partners
  • Be part of a multicultural family. At SnT we have more than 60 nationalities. Throughout the year, we organise team-building events, networking activities and more
