POST DOC POSITION on Energy Harvesting Communications Networks, Advanced Signal and Information Processing Department per el CTTC

The Advanced Signal and Information Processing Department from the Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicomunicacions de Catalunya announces the availability of a 1-year post-doctoral position. For more information about our Department please check
The position is associated to the Energy harvesting Communication netwoRks: OPtimization and demonStration (E-CROPS) project, funded within the CHIST-ERA funding scheme of FP7, which fosters highly innovative and multidisciplinary collaborative projects in information and communication sciences and technologies.
The project started in December 2013. Its main objective is to study the design, optimization and implementation of a wireless network in which, nodes can harvest renewable energy and store the extra energy in their batteries, be it at the terminal or the network infrastructure side. More information on E-CROPS:
The main task of the post-doc is to develop optimal communications policies for EH wireless networks, propose power/rate allocation, cooperation and interference management policies for multi-hop EH communication networks and determine achievable data throughput and delay of these policies. The impact of factors such as finite storage capacity, battery leakage, as well as the energy dissipated on the device circuitry will be taken into account.


The ideal candidate should have a PhD degree in the area of optimization of energy harvesting communication systems and networks. In particular, preference will be given to those candidates with proven experience on the design of power allocation strategies for energy harvesting devices taking into account the processing energy of the different elements in the transmission chain. In addition, experience on the design of transmission strategies for practical communication systems, e.g., that consider non-Gaussian input signalling, will be of high value. The candidate must have strong background or interest in the following research areas: optimization theory, signal processing, communication theory and network theory.
Applicants must be strongly motivated, hold a Ph.D. degree in telecommunications,   electrical engineering or similar fields, and have the capacity of carrying out innovative research independently. A good publication record is fundamental. Experience in R&D or industrial projects is a plus.
