Call 4/2013-1 - Industrial PhD -SMARTECH Department per al CTTC

The Smart Energy Efficient Communication Technologies (SMARTECH) Department of the Telecommunications Technological Centre of Catalonia (CTTC) is looking for a potential PhD candidate to be co-funded by the Agency for Management of University and Research Grants (AGAUR) and the IQUADRAT Informatica S.L under the AGAUR´s Industrial PhD Program.
We address (pre-PhD) researchers with a MSc aiming at significantly improving their career perspectives from both the PUBLIC and PRIVATE sector.
The duration of the appointment is 3 years. Applicants will be enrolled in the PhD program of the Signal Theory and Communication Department of the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC).

RESEARCH TOPIC:
The PhD candidate will conduct research on 5th generation (5G) wireless networks. In particular, the proposed PhD project will exploit promising technologies, such as “network coding” and “node cooperation”, working in synergy with “interference management policies and small cells” to provide a new radio networking topology in the context of the 5G paradigm. In particular, the specific objectives include:
  • Investigation and demonstration of a new network architecture to provide ubiquitous virtual small cell access via a high-speed backhaul link for outdoor small cells by exploiting cooperation and network coding in LTE-A networks
  • Study of coexistence between virtual small cells and macro cells and proposal of interference-aware network-coded cooperation mechanisms;
  • Investigation of advanced secure network coding schemes for cooperative wireless networks to ensure the privacy of the data and the users, preventing potential jammers and free riders;
Junior researchers with an MSc degree in telecommunications, electrical engineering, computer science, or related fields, and capacity of carrying out innovative research, are highly encouraged to apply for this position.
The candidate must have experience in wireless networking, specifically in Medium Access Control (MAC) protocols and/or Network Coding. Applicants should also have a solid background in some of the following fields: networking, information theory, communication theory, signal processing, optimization theory, network information theory, and coding theory. Knowledge on simulation environments such as MATLAB and C/C++ is required.

ELIGIBILY
  • The recruited researcher should not already have a PhD and they should have the qualifications to embark on a PhD program.
  • The recruited researcher should be able to get a residence permit in Spain.
  • The student’s academic record should fulfill a minimum requirement in terms of average normalized scores, computed according to the rules established by AGAUR


FINANCIAL PROVISIONS
Gross salary of 22.000€ as defined by the AGAUR´s Industrial PhD program
