OFFER DESCRIPTION

We have open vacancies for research assistants / Ph.D. students at the Institute for Communication Technologies and Embedded Systems (www.ice.rwth-aachen.de) of RWTH Aachen University with Univ.-Prof. Haris Gačanin.

The ICE (www.ice.rwth-aachen.de) performs R&D projects in different areas of communications, embedded, and cyber-physical system design. Our main application domains are next-generation wireless communications, automotive electronics, cyber-security, and Industry 4.0. ICE maintains tight cooperation with industry partners worldwide and has transferred numerous technologies to semiconductor vendors, system houses, and EDA companies.

This position is a part of the development of a novel physical-layer design for low-latency applications including following topics, device-to-device communications, multi-antenna systems, channel estimation, adaptive equalization, radio resource management, beamforming, radar/sensing-communications. We are looking for researchers who can develop concepts and prototype new communication ideas. The successful candidates will have extensive career development and mentoring opportunities. The researchers will present their work internally and externally, to technical and non-technical audiences. It is highly expected to publish research results in top-quality IEEE journals and conferences.
