    First Stage Researcher (R1)
    01/06/2021 01:59 - Europe/Brussels
    Netherlands › Delft


The progress in circuit technology has allowed researchers to think about leveraging spectrum beyond millimeter wave. It is not unreasonable to imagine commodity radios with massive antenna arrays and emerging radio frequency (RF) technologies in the near future. To enable efficient communication with these radios, it is critical to understand hardware constraints at the antennas, the RF and the digital front ends. In this position, you will design new waveforms and algorithms for communications while accounting for the hardware constraints in futuristic radios. To this end, you will use tools from multi-dimensional sequence design, optimization, and tensor signal processing. The waveforms and algorithms designed in your work will be evaluated on a millimeter wave testbed to highlight the potential of the proposed solutions in next generation wireless systems.

The department Delft Center for Systems and Control (DCSC) of the faculty Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering, coordinates the education and research activities in systems and control at Delft University of Technology. The Centers' research mission is to conduct fundamental research in systems dynamics and control, involving dynamic modelling, advanced control theory, optimisation and signal analysis. The research is motivated by advanced technology development in physical imaging systems, renewable energy, robotics and transportation systems.
