ERC Consolidator Grant InnoSpace

Revolutionizing fiber-wireless communications through space-division multiplexed photonics

The ITEAM Research Institute (Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain) offers 1 Postdoctoral position to a well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic scientist/engineer, with a Doctorate in Photonics  and background on optical fiber communications. The successful candidate will be associated to the Photonics Research Labs, led by Prof. José Capmany.

The contract is offered for 4 years within the framework of the European ERC Consolidator Grant InnoSpace granted to Ivana Gasulla under the title “Revolutionizing fiber-wireless communications through space-division multiplexed photonics”. The idea of the project InnoSpace is to develop what we call “distributed signal processing”, where simultaneously to radiofrequency distribution, the same optical fiber will implement a variety of broadband functionalities that will be especially demanded in future 5G smart radiating systems. This approach requires working on a new portfolio of advanced optical fibers exploiting space-division multiplexing techniques, including both multicore fibers and few-mode fibers.

Benefits

The contract is offered for 4 years after a test period of 4 months. The contract may be renewable after the 4 years with the funds from other projects/grants.

Offer Requirements

  • REQUIRED EDUCATION LEVEL
    Engineering: PhD or equivalent
  • REQUIRED LANGUAGES
    ENGLISH: Excellent

Skills/Qualifications

The candidate should have a Telecommunications/Electrical Engineering Degree (or Physicist) with a Doctorate in Photonics  and deep background on optical fiber communications (especially preferred in the field of space-division multiplexing). He/she must hold a good track record of scientific publications and experience in international research projects.
