Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden  invites application for Postdoctoral fellow in Sweden from eligible and interested candidates

About- At the department of Electrical Engineering research and education are performed in the areas of Communication and Antenna systems, Systems and Control, Computer vision, Signal processing and Biomedical engineering, and Electric Power Engineering. Our knowledge is of use everywhere where there is advanced technology with integrated electronics. Research group work with challenges for a sustainable future in society of today, for example in the growing demands concerning efficient systems for communications and electrifying. Postdoctoral fellow in Sweden, Chalmers University of Technology

Research group offer a dynamic and international work environment with about 200 employees from more than 20 countries, and with extensive national and international research collaborations with academia, industry and society. 

The department provides about 100 courses, of which most are included in the Master’s Programs ”Biomedical Engineering”, “Electric Power Engineering”, ”Systems, Control and Mechatronics” and ”Communication Engineering”.

Research/Job Area-  Communications, Photonics, Electronics, and Networking

Project Title- Multidimensional fiber-optical communications

Location- Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden


A PhD degree (or close to completion) in information theory is required.

The degree should generally not be older than three years.

Mathematical skills in, e.g., optimization and stochastic processes, are essential, as are excellent programming skills.

Knowledge in digital communication theory and signal processing is also necessary.

You should have an interest in applying your skills to optical systems, and it is considered a strong advantage if you already have such experience.

You must have a proven publication record in top-ranked journals and/or conferences.

Good communication skills and fluency in English are also essential.

Candidates must be creative and have the ability to initiate new research collaborations, work in teams, present their ideas and results to researchers with different backgrounds, and be open for the application of results.

Experience in international collaboration, innovation and utilization, and teaching are also meritorious.

Job/Position Description-  You will participate in research as outlined above and will be developing information-theoretic methods to estimate and bound the full-dimensional channel capacity. Capacity-achieving input distributions and optimal detectors will be derived. Your work will require collaboration with the experimental parts of the work (as you will process experimental data to generate models and validate theoretic results) as well as the signal-processing parts (as your results will guide the development of transmitter and receiver algorithms). You are expected to publish your results in major journals and conferences.

The position as a Postdoctoral Fellow is a full-time temporary employment, limited to a maximum of two years (1+1). A monthly salary is paid. A limited amount of teaching and supervision may also be included in the position.

Personal letter (Maximum 2 pages; please name the document as: YourSurname-Letter-Ref20190078.pdf)including:
• Introducing yourself and present your qualifications
• Previous research fields and main research results
• Future goals and research focus: How would you utilize your skills and experiences to contribute to the goals of this particular project?

Other documents (If possible, please combine them into a single pdf file and name the document as YourSurname-Other-Ref20190078.pdf) including:
• Transcripts and certificates for your PhD degree
• Transcripts and certificates for your Master degree
• Transcripts and certificates for your Bachelor degree
• Other relevant certificates
