[DMANET] Ph.D. Position Information Theory, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden

A Ph.D. position is available at the Department of Signals and Systems,
Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden.

***Job description***
The main research objective for the Ph.D. student position is to assess
the impact of channel uncertainty, imperfect synchronization, and
transceiver impairments on the capacity of wireless networks. The
analysis, which should be conducted by means of information theoretic
tools, is expected to yield novel low-complexity protocols and coding
schemes for real-world wireless networks. The position is for a period
of maximum five years. Up to 20% of this time will be used for
undergraduate teaching and other departmental work, and the remaining
part is spent on completing the research and courses required for a
Ph.D. degree. A monthly salary is paid. The position can commence in
January 2011.

***Required qualifications***
You should have a Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering,
Engineering Physics, Applied Math, or similar, and high grades in the
core courses. You should have an interest in digital communications and
wireless systems. A strong background in mathematics is required;
knowledge of information theory is an advantage but not a prerequisite.
You should be fluent in English, have good collaboration skills, and be
able to communicate your results in writing and in presentations.
