Postdoctoral position at Chalmers on mmWave localization / radar communication

Country/Region : Sweden

Website :


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. We work with challenges for a sustainable future in society of today, for example in the growing demands concerning efficient systems for communications and electrifying.
We 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”.
Information about the project
This position will focus on communication, localization, tracking, and mapping at high carrier frequencies (28GHz mmWave and 60/79 GHz FMCW radar) using wireless signals exchanged between vehicles. You will work in collaboration with other postdocs and PhD researchers in the CROSSNET team, and have the opportunity to contribute to Horizon 2020 projects in vehicular communication and localization, such as HIGHTS, 5GCAR, GREENLOC, and MassLOC. You will contribute to a fundamental understanding and develop data-driven algorithms, both for single V2V links and vehicular networks. We welcome experienced researcher that bring complementary expertise to our knowhow in beamforming, channel estimation, localization, and MAC design. The position is for 1 year, with the plan to extend to 1 more year, depending on the performance of the candidate and the availability of funding.
Major responsibilities
Your major responsibility as postdoc is to perform your own research in a research group. The position may also include supervising master's and/or PhD students to a certain extent. Another important aspect involves collaboration within academia and with society at large. The position is meritorious for future research duties within academia as well as industry/the public sector.
Position summary
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of two years (1+1).
To qualify for the position of postdoc, you must have a doctoral degree in electrical engineering, in the topic of wireless communication. Background in at least one of the following research areas will be preferred: high-frequency communication, machine learning and optimization, target tracking, statistical signal processing. Ability to initiate new research collaborations, work in a team and be open for the application of results is important. Good communication skills and good command of English are essential. We especially encourage female candidate to apply.
Chalmers continuously strives to be an attractive employer. Equality and diversity are substantial foundations in all activities at Chalmers.
