Job Description

Applications are invited for a 3-year postdoctoral fellowship in signal processing techniques for 5G wireless communications. This fellowship is funded by the Science without Borders programme in Brazil. The topic of the project is open in the area of signal processing techniques for 5G wireless communications. Potential topics include:

• Massive MIMO systems
• Millimeter-wave communications
• Distributed antenna systems
• Precoding techniques
• Detection algorithms

Start date: February 2015 (with flexibility)

The activities will involve the development of system and signal models using linear algebra, simulation tools, practical signal processing algorithms and analytical approaches.

This is an exciting international opportunity for a candidate with (or expecting) a PhD/doctorate in Electrical and Electronic Engineering or related areas. Amongst the key technical requirements are:

• an excellent level of mathematics and engineering concepts,
• at least one top (e. g., IEEE Transactions or equivalent) journal paper accepted,
• experience with development of algorithms and design of communication systems.

The successful candidate will be based at PUC-Rio, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, will visit TU Ilmenau frequently and spend a substantial part of the time there, and is expected to attend international conferences and collaborate extensively with international experts.

The fellowship is open to everyone and gives a stipend of about €1,400 per month (tax free) for 3 years subject to an annual increase. A research budget of about €4,000 per year for conferences, research visits, etc is provided to the successful candidate. Additional funding might be available with industrial projects and requires extra 4-6 hours per week.

Applicants should send an up to date CV with photo, a one-page personal statement, full contact details (including email addresses) of 2 referees, transcripts and publications to:
