Job Description

The Signal Processing for Communications and Navigation (SPCOMNAV) research group at Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (UAB) seeks researchers to contribute to the activities on 5G and GNSS positioning in urban and vehicular environments (V2X), currently ongoing at the group. The researchers will benefit from the strong and intense links of SPCOMNAV with industry and European institutions, being involved in international research projects contributing to make a leap forward in the current state of the art.

The researchers are expected to contribute both with fundamental research results and with performance analyses on the use of 5G technologies for localization, either in a standalone manner or in cooperation with other positioning technologies such as GNSS (GPS, Galileo). For 5G-only localization, the researcher will participate in the design of positioning solutions based on technologies such as mmWave, massive MIMO and band aggregation. For combined 5G+GNSS positioning, the researcher will investigate specific methods to improve the security and accuracy of GNSS receivers, including methods for anti-spoofing and the interplay between 5G and GNSS through cloud-based signal processing.

The positions to be filled are seeking for candidates with a background in Electrical (Telecommunications) Engineering having preferably a Ph.D. in this field. Prospective candidates in related disciplines such as Electronics Engineering may be considered for this position, as well as candidates holding just a M.Sc. but with an outstanding academic record.

Candidates should have high grades in courses dealing with communication technologies and signal processing (estimation and detection theory), and proven experience in these fields. They must be proactive, enthusiastic and with strong self-motivation for conducting research and facing new challenges.
