Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world's top 100 universities. The University has around 46 000 students and more than 8 000 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.
Lund University welcomes applicants with diverse backgrounds and experiences. We regard gender equality and diversity as a strength and an asset.Description of the workplace
The position is within the division of Communications Engineering at the Department of Electrical and Information Technology at LTH in Lund. The division has 8 senior researchers, around 20 PhD students and a deep collaboration with industry. The division works within wireless communication in a wider sense and the activities span from communication theory to implementation of antenna structures.We offer
Lund University is a public authority which means that employees get particular benefits, generous annual leave and an advantageous occupational pension scheme. Read more on the University website about being a Lund University employee Work at Lund UniversitySubject description
The subject area includes large-scale MIMO where the antenna elements are distributed over a larger geographical area, in the form of co-located clusters or as individual elements. The focus area is on the characteristics of the radio channel in such systems to obtain efficient and reliable communications. This means that the subject area includes cellular communication systems for 5G and 6G, channel modeling, channel characterization, combined communication and sensing with associated signal processing.Work duties
The main duties involved in a post-doctoral position is to conduct research. Teaching may also be included, but up to no more than 20% of working hours. The position includes the opportunity for three weeks of training in higher education teaching and learning. The purpose of the position is to develop the independence as a researcher and to create the opportunity of further development.
We will explore different system configurations to obtain reliable and efficient communication. The focus will be on the characteristics of the radio channel and its impact on efficiency and reliability, especially with respect to the lower frequency bands below 7 GHz. Collaborative subsystems operating at millimeter wave frequencies and sub-millimeter wave frequencies may also be included. The distributed antenna systems require new forms of characterization methods, hence, the development of measurement systems and evaluation methods for characterization of distributed radio channels are also included in the tasks. Measurements will be carried out in both indoor and urban environments. Based on the measurements, channel models relevant for communication and sensing in distributed massive MIMO systems will be developed and performance evaluations for different system configurations will be carried out.
The project is a part of a larger national project with Swedish industry and partially also of European collaborative projects, hence the duties include project meetings and joint project work.
Detailed description of the work duties:
Appointment to a post-doctoral position requires that the applicant has a PhD, or an international degree deemed equivalent to a PhD, within the subject of the position. The certificate proving the qualification requirement is met, must be received before the employment decision is made. Priority will be given to candidates who have graduated no more than three years ago before the last day for application. Under special circumstances, the doctoral degree can have been completed earlier.
This is a career development position primarily focused on research. The position is intended as an initial step in a career, and the assessment of the applicants will primarily be based on their research qualifications and potential as researchers. Particular emphasis will be placed on research skills within the subject.
For appointments to a post-doctoral position, the following shall form the assessment criteria:
Consideration will also be given to how the applicant's experience and skills complement and strengthen ongoing research within the department, and how they stand to contribute to its future development.Further information
