Project

This job opening covers a research position at KU Leuven (Belgium) for a PhD candidate in the frame of a Marie Curie ITN project on mmWave sensing and communication. More information can be found here: https://b5g-mints.eu

 

MINTS provides a unique system-oriented training to 15 ESRs, nurturing a new generation of innovators thanks to internationally recognized researchers with broad experience in research, training, and participation in EU, national, and industry-sponsored projects. With the intensive involvement of industrial beneficiaries and partner organisations (Nokia, NEC, Sony, NI, IMEC, Proximus, Italtel), the ESRs will obtain in-depth knowledge and skills in mmWave networks and its key applications. This interdisciplinary and intersectoral training is an essential component of each ESR’s PhD. The 15 ESRs are distributed over 7 beneficiaries in 6 countries: KU Leuven (Belgium), IMDEA Networks Institute (Spain), TU Darmstadt (Germany), NEC (Germany), University of Padua (Italy), Lund University (Sweden), and Nokia Bell Labs (Ireland). Additionally, the consortium is completed by 7 partner organisations: IMEC (Belgium), Proximus (Belgium), NI (Germany), Carlos III University of Madrid (Spain), Italtel (Italy), Maynooth University (Ireland), and Sony (Sweden).

Each of the 15 ESRs will be working towards a PhD degree, supported by a carefully chosen supervisory team that maximizes both scientific excellence as well as interdisciplinary and intersectoral collaboration. The 15 MINTS ESRs will not only receive state-of-the-art science/technology training but will also benefit from a unique soft-skills training programme. The interdisciplinary and inter-domain training will make MINTS ESRs highly employable in various industries (such as the EU telecommunication vendors and operators Nokia, Eriksson, Deutsche Telekom, Telefonica, and Vodafone), academia, or public government bodies.

 

 

The specific objectives of this PhD project are:

 

To design custom measurement beam patterns for phased antenna arrays to quickly acquire Channel State Information (CSI);

To investigate tradeoffs between link SNR maximization and interference minimization in order to balance fairness and efficiency throughout the network;

To investigate algorithms that acquire the full CSI when only partial information is available via efficient procedures, either involving prior measurements or by factoring in external information.

Profile

Required profile: Telecommunications, Electrical Engineering

Desirable skills/interests: signal processing, optimization, machine learning, programming & implementation skills (the applicant should be proficient in at least one or two of the skills)

Offer

  • An exciting research environment, working on the intersection between theory and implementation, in a very multi-disciplinary research environment
  • A Ph.D. title from a highly-ranked university (after approximately 4 years of successful research)
  • A thorough scientific education, the possibility to become a world-class researcher
  • A KU Leuven affiliation, one of the largest research universities of Europe
  • The possibility to participate in international conferences and collaborations
  • Interesting Marie Curie fellowship and benefits
