WINDMILL Early Stage Researcher 6: Predictive Machine Learning for multiuser beamforming in massive MIMO
Aalborg University is seeking to hire an Early Stage Researcher (ESR) to join the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network on “Integrating Wireless Communication ENgineering and MachIne Learning”.(WindMill). More details are included https://windmill-itn.eu/
The project offers an excellent research and training programme:
- Opportunity to join a network of leading Universities, research institutes and companies in the field of wireless communications and machine learning.
- The ESR is primarily hosted by Aalborg University with stays in partner institutions (secondments).
- Training programme including regular summer and winter schools to build technical skills as well as soft skills.
- The salary is very competitive The salaries are very competitive and composed by the following allowances: living, mobility and family (the latest only if eligible, see criteria of eligibility in the project’s website).
The ESR will be enrolled in the PhD programme at Aalborg University. The supervision team includes: Prof. Elisabeth de Carvalho, Prof. Petar Popovski and Prof. Cedomir Stefanovic. The objectives of the PhD project are: (1) Develop machine learning approaches to build feature maps of the radio environment using antenna arrays of very large dimension (large intelligent surfaces) or distributed antenna arrays, (2) Develop methodology to extract features to be exploited for different use cases (high data rate, low latency, IoT), (3) Devise low complexity multi-user beamforming techniques for very large arrays based on radio maps and machine learning approaches.
All candidates must meet the following requirements to be considered for this post:
If considered for the position, you will be requested to prove that you comply with those requirements.
