Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Fak­ultät Elektro­tech­nik und Inform­a­tion­s­tech­nik - Insti­tut für Nachrichten­tech­nik - Deutsche Telekom Pro­fes­sur für Kom­munika­tion­snetze

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

At TU Dresden, Fac­ulty of Elec­trical and Com­puter Engin­eer­ing, Insti­tute of Com­mu­nic­a­tions Engin­eer­ing, the Deutsche Telekom Chair of Com­mu­nic­a­tion Net­works offers two pro­ject pos­i­tions under the BMBF pro­ject DAKORE as

start­ing as soon as pos­sible. The pos­i­tions are lim­ited until June 30, 2025. The period of employ­ment is gov­erned by § 2 (2) Fixed Term Research Con­tracts Act (Wis­senschaft­szeitver­trags­ge­setz – Wis­sZeitVG).

The pur­pose of this pro­ject is to reduce the energy con­sump­tion of future radio access net­works by devel­op­ing advanced power amp­li­fi­ers and net­work man­age­ment through arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence/machine learn­ing algorithms. In this con­text, Com­Nets leads the efforts in net­work-level optim­iz­a­tion. The pro­ject will be car­ried out in cooper­a­tion with other chairs at TUD and indus­trial part­ners.

Working field:

Task: The suc­cess­ful can­did­ates will be work­ing on imple­ment­ing a sim­u­la­tion model of a radio net­work and on radio resource alloc­a­tion using machine learn­ing algorithms in the con­text of the pro­ject DAKORE, fun­ded by the Ger­man Fed­eral Min­istry of Edu­ca­tion and Research. Under the assump­tion of advanced power amp­li­fi­ers, that provide high energy effi­ciency for a range of oper­at­ing points (the power amp­li­fi­ers will be developed by another chair at TUD), a dis­trib­uted arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence can adapt­ively con­trol the net­work to reduce the energy con­sump­tion while main­tain­ing a high qual­ity of ser­vice for all users. This includes the adap­tion of para­met­ers of a set of access points (e.g., trans­mis­sion power) and the alloc­a­tion of users to these access points (dif­fer­ent access points may use dif­fer­ent fre­quency ranges). The envi­sioned dynamic con­trol of a dis­trib­uted net­work can, for example, be tackled using multi-agent rein­force­ment learn­ing. In order to ensure seam­less com­pli­ance with the reques­ted qual­ity of ser­vice of all users, a pre­dict­ive engine may also be part of the over­all sys­tem. The pro­ject leaves much space for cre­ativ­ity and the imple­ment­a­tion of the can­did­ates’ interests. Suc­cess­ful can­did­ates will be required to per­form the fol­low­ing tasks:
  • Carry out research in the emer­ging topic arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence for radio resource alloc­a­tion (both devel­op­ing a net­work sim­u­la­tion and an intel­li­gent net­work man­age­ment sys­tem).
  • Col­lab­or­ate with col­leagues at TUD and with industry part­ners.
  • Dis­sem­in­ate res­ults through sci­entific pub­lic­a­tions in the top-tier ven­ues.
  • Present res­ults in top-tier inter­na­tional con­fer­ences and work­shops.
  • The pos­i­tion may also include minor teach­ing duties and/or con­tri­bu­tions in the devel­op­ment of new research pro­pos­als.


  • The can­did­ate should pos­sess a uni­versity degree in elec­trical engin­eer­ing, tele­com­mu­nic­a­tion engin­eer­ing, com­puter sci­ence, or equi­val­ent.
  • The ideal can­did­ate should have know­ledge and exper­i­ence in sev­eral of the fol­low­ing top­ics:
o wire­less com­mu­nic­a­tions, in par­tic­u­lar in the con­text of 5G,
o wire­less net­work sim­u­la­tion,
o machine learn­ing, in par­tic­u­lar multi-agent rein­force­ment learn­ing,
o radio resource alloc­a­tion/ Radio resource man­age­ment (e.g., band­width and power alloc­a­tion, schedul­ing, etc.).
o An under­stand­ing of power amp­li­fi­ers and high-fre­quency hard­ware is bene­fi­cial towards under­stand­ing the lar­ger pic­ture of the pro­ject but not required.
  • Good pro­gram­ming skills are required. Highly rel­ev­ant pro­gram­ming lan­guages are Python, C++, and MAT­LAB.
  • Flu­ent writ­ten and verbal com­mu­nic­a­tion skills in Eng­lish are required.
