Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den

Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Dresden (TUD), as a Uni­versity of Excel­lence, is one of the lead­ing and most dynamic research insti­tu­tions in the coun­try. Foun­ded in 1828, today it is a glob­ally ori­ented, region­ally anchored top uni­versity as it focuses on the grand chal­lenges of the 21st cen­tury. lt devel­ops innov­at­ive solu­tions for the world's most press­ing issues. In research and aca­demic pro­grams, the uni­versity unites the nat­ural and engin­eer­ing sci­ences with the human­it­ies, social sci­ences and medi­cine. This wide range of dis­cip­lines is a spe­cial fea­ture, facil­it­at­ing inter­dis­cip­lin­ar­ity and trans­fer of sci­ence to soci­ety. As a mod­ern employer, it offers attract­ive work­ing con­di­tions to all employ­ees in teach­ing, research, tech­no­logy and admin­is­tra­tion. The goal is to pro­mote and develop their indi­vidual abil­it­ies while empower­ing every­one to reach their full poten­tial. TUD embod­ies a uni­versity cul­ture that is char­ac­ter­ized by cos­mo­pol­it­an­ism, mutual appre­ci­ation, thriv­ing innov­a­tion and act­ive par­ti­cip­a­tion. For TUD diversity is an essen­tial fea­ture and a qual­ity cri­terion of an excel­lent uni­versity. Accord­ingly, we wel­come all applic­ants who would like to com­mit them­selves, their achieve­ments and pro­ductiv­ity to the suc­cess of the whole insti­tu­tion.

3 Research Asso­ci­ates (m/f/x)

At the Fac­ulty of Elec­trical and Com­puter Engin­eer­ing, Insti­tute of Com­mu­nic­a­tion Tech­no­logy, the Voda­fone Chair of Mobile Com­mu­nic­a­tions Sys­tems offers three pos­i­tions as

Research Asso­ci­ate (m/f/x)
(sub­ject to per­sonal qual­i­fic­a­tion employ­ees are remu­ner­ated accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)

start­ing at the earli­est pos­sible date. The pos­i­tions are lim­ited for two years. The period of employ­ment is gov­erned by the Fixed Term Research Con­tracts Act (Wis­senschaft­szeitver­trags­ge­setz-Wis­sZeitVG). Bal­an­cing fam­ily and career is an import­ant issue. The pos­i­tions are gen­er­ally suit­able for can­did­ates seek­ing part-time employ­ment. Please indic­ate your request in your applic­a­tion. The pos­i­tions offer the chance to obtain fur­ther aca­demic qual­i­fic­a­tion.
The Voda­fone Chair of Mobile Com­mu­nic­a­tions Sys­tems offers the oppor­tun­ity to help shape the devel­op­ment of future mobile com­mu­nic­a­tion sys­tems in a pros­per­ous and dynamic envir­on­ment, to gain valu­able pro­ject exper­i­ence and to estab­lish and deepen con­tacts with innov­at­ive com­pan­ies.

Working field:

You will con­duct research in the field of wire­less com­mu­nic­a­tions tech­no­logy on one of the fol­low­ing top­ics:
1) Sys­tem sim­u­la­tion and devel­op­ment of solu­tions for remote ren­der­ing aug­men­ted real­ity applic­a­tions in cooper­a­tion with Meta.
2) Devel­op­ment of beam form­ing and beam selec­tion strategies/algorithms for com­mu­nic­a­tion with large antenna arrays at D-band fre­quen­cies (110 – 170 GHz) for 6th gen­er­a­tion mobile net­works. Char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion of the per­form­ance of train­ing and adapt­a­tion algorithms for chan­nel estim­a­tion and beam align­ment.
3) Devel­op­ment of chan­nel estim­a­tion and syn­chron­iz­a­tion algorithms for ter­abit wire­less com­mu­nic­a­tion sys­tems with tem­por­ally over­sampled 1-bit quant­iz­a­tion. Ana­lysis of the impact of dis­tor­tions by the ana­log fron­tend and sampling jit­ter on the com­mu­nic­a­tion per­form­ance.
4) Devel­op­ment and eval­u­ation of resi­li­ent wire­less sys­tems with applic­a­tions e.g. in medi­cine or industry. Top­ics include traffic mod­el­ling, spec­trum and inter­fer­ence sens­ing (incl. pre­dic­tion), radio resource alloc­a­tion, net­work optim­iz­a­tion and inter­face diversity. Approaches com­prise machine learn­ing-based as well as model-based meth­ods.
5) Devel­op­ment of wave­forms and sig­nal pro­cessing algorithms (model based and AI/ML) for joint com­mu­nic­a­tions and sens­ing. Top­ics include flex­ible wave­form and frame mul­ti­plex­ing, chan­nel and hard­ware mod­el­ing, and high-res­ol­u­tion para­meter. Eval­u­ation of the developed schemes in dif­fer­ent use cases, such as beam­form­ing, loc­al­iz­a­tion, and ima­ging.
6) Design and eval­u­ation of novel ultra-wide­band radio access tech­no­lo­gies for wire­less com­mu­nic­a­tions in fre­quency bands above 100 GHz to achieve ultra-high data rates. Explor­a­tion of high-gain beam­form­ing archi­tec­tures and beam man­age­ment. Devel­op­ment of hard­ware-aware wave­form and receiver algorithms.
