PhD Student (m/f/d) in the Field of Radio Access Networks and Communication Systems
We are seeking an exceptional candidate for an academic position with above average knowledge of radio access networks, communication systems and related fields. Your responsibilities will include conducting independent research in one or more of the following areas:
- Optimization of radio access networks and communicatoin systems using machine learning
- Semantic communication in the context of 6G
- Integration of communication and cyber-physical systems
- Dynamic and self-optimizing/organizing radio access networks
- Multi-modal communication systems and information processing systems
- Application of machine learning to optimize communication protocols, in particular mobile communication protocols
Responsibilities include independent research in one or more of the above areas. In addition, you will be responsible for publishing selected results in high-impact journals and conferences. Your duties will also include assisting in teaching courses at CEL. The activity is combined with the goal of obtaining a doctorate (Dr.-Ing.) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). The typical duration of the doctorate is 3-5 years. At CEL, you can expect an interdisciplinary research environment at the interface between electrical engineering and information technology, computer science, physics, and applied mathematics, which offers you extensive scientific freedom. Furthermore, extensive opportunities for further education are available to you.
We offer a temporary full-time position (100%) with a salary in the remuneration group TV-L E13, depending on the fulfillment of the professional and personal requirements. The time limit is limited to 1 year, with the possibility of extension.
Requirements and Qualifications
You have an outstanding Master's degree in electrical engineering and information technology, communications engineering, technical computer science, applied mathematics or in a related field of study, very good English skills, good verbal and written expression, as well as an independent and responsible way of working. Ideally, you have programming experience as well as advanced knowledge in one or more of the related topics information and communication theory, communication networks, mobile network protocol, or semantic data processing. We also welcome applicants from other disciplines who would like to apply their knowledge "cross-domain" in communications engineering systems. You have a dexterous and confident manner in dealing with project partners and students, organizational skills and the ability to work in a team.
Please apply directly by e-mail to Prof. Dr.-Ing. Peter Rost. Please include a complete curriculum vitae (including a list of publications, if applicable), a letter of motivation, and complete Master's and Bachelor's transcripts with your application.
