Job description

We seek to appoint a PostDoc to take part in research and knowledge exchange in the research project with close collaboration with Nokia Bell Labs. 

With 5G NR currently being crystallized in the recent 3GPP specifications, research on further evolution of this radio technology has already started.

Beyond 5G networks will further enhance the current 5G NR capabilities towards the support of higher data rates, lower latencies and higher reliabilities. For example, beyond 5G radios may need to support fast closed loop control with cycle times down to 0.1 ms and wired-like reliability. Typical use cases are drive control in manufacturing, or intra-vehicle communication for engine and suspension control. 

This postdoc project focuses on the design of physical layer and medium access control enablers for the support of ultra-low latency and extreme reliability. In particular, frame structure, link adaptation, channel access and interference mitigation mechanisms have to be redesigned according to the new beyond 5G challenging objectives. Moreover, the usage of machine learning tools for interference mitigation is to be investigated.

Bands of interest for the design include both cm-wave (6 GHz and below) and mm-wave (28 GHz, 52.6 GHz, 60 GHz).

Active dissemination of the research findings via international conference and high-quality journal is expected. Further, the research is also intended to impact the next 3GPP NR Releases. 

The ideal candidate for the position is expected to be capable of conducting research in the above areas, and should combine strong analytical skills with a broad knowledge of wireless communications and related design challenges. Also, experience with Matlab and C++ is highly appreciated.

These stipends are open for appointment from 1 September 2019.

Job description

The transition to a low-carbon society include new prosumer roles linking renewable energy production and consumption by the use of smart technologies. To guide this low-carbon transition, new theory development on the role of technological systems in everyday life is needed. The project called eCAPE will contribute to this by further developing theories of practice in three directions:

  • The importance of gender and social structures in reproducing and changing practices
  • The role of the ethical consumer in developing new practices
  • The inclusion of non-humans as carriers and performers of practices.

The three PhD project will deal with different aspect of the project:

  • The first PhD project will make use of unique Danish data possibilities, consisting of combined register data, actual residential energy consumption data and survey data, to analyze aspects of energy consumption related to gender differences, social structures and ethical consumption using statistical methods.
  • The second PhD project will work qualitatively, with interview or focus groups, including aspects of gender, social structures and questions of ethical consumption in relation the development of new practices.
  • The third PhD project will work qualitatively with understandings of how to conceptualizing the relation between non-humans and humans in the performance of practices when introducing new smart technologies in homes.

Candidates for all three positions are expected to have a relevant social science education e.g. within sociology, geography, economy, political science or anthropology. For the quantitative candidate documented qualifications within statistical methods, including the use of statistical programs such as Stata or R is required. For the two qualitative candidates competences in the performance of qualitative methods are required, as well as documented skills in Danish language at a proficiency level. Knowledge of energy consumption, consumer research and theories of practices is not a requirement, but all candidates should have an interest in requiring competences within these fields during their PhD study. eCAPE is a project financed by an advanced ERC grant. You can read more about the project at www.ecape.aau.dk.

One or more PhD Stipends in Designing and exploring solutions for sustainable everyday mobility in cities (SBI-19037)

In the “Research Group on Sustainable Cities and Everyday Practices” at the Danish Building Research Institute (SBi), one or more PhD stipends are available within the general research program Planning and Development. SBi is part of the Faculty of Engineering and Science, AAU Copenhagen Campus. The stipend is open for appointment from 1 September 2019.

Job description

The massive local, regional and global challenges related to increasing levels of individual, car‐based transport in larger cities in Denmark and worldwide call for new knowledge on how to develop integrated, multi-modal and sustainable mobility solutions. This is the focus of a new project called SIMS, which aims at contributing to a sustainable mobility transition by exploring and developing new sustainable mobility solutions that are tailored to the everyday life of citizens. A specific focus is on integrating existing resource-efficient mobility solutions in cities, e.g. car and bike sharing, combined with social and physical measures to support the adoption of these new integrated and sustainable mobility solutions. SIMS involves explorative studies of existing mobility habits and practices as well as designing and trialing new solutions at specific neighborhoods in the Copenhagen area.

The PhD stipend will be an integrated part of the project and contribute to the development of new solutions to be trialed at the specific sites as well as to carry out empirical research on how these solutions are adopted by local residents and integrated into their everyday practices. Thus, in addition to more classical academic work, the PhD stipend should be open for also getting involved in creative design processes involving dialogue between project partners within the mobility area. The empirical approach of the PhD is based on qualitative methods and the theoretical approach is anchored within practice theory studies.

Candidates for the PhD stipend are expected to have a relevant social science education, e.g. within sociology, geography, urban planning, architecture, political science or anthropology. Competences in the performance of qualitative interviews (or similar qualitative methods, e.g. focus groups) are required as well as documented skills in Danish language at a proficient level. Knowledge on urban mobility, sustainable mobility or theories of practices is not a requirement, but candidates should have an interest in requiring competences within these fields during the PhD study. The SIMS project is financed by Innovation Fund Denmark and involves cooperation between 10 Danish partners from universities, municipalities/authorities, urban developers and companies offering mobility services. Find more information at the website www.sims.aau.dk (to be launched in the beginning of May 2019).

You may obtain further information from Senior Researcher Toke Haunstrup Christensen, Danish Building Research Institute, phone: +45 5142 7387, email: thc@sbi.aau.dk , concerning the scientific aspects of the stipend.

PhD stipends are allocated to individuals who hold a Master’s degree. PhD stipends are normally for a period of 3 years. It is a prerequisite for allocation of the stipend that the candidate will be enrolled as a PhD student at the Doctoral School of Engineering and Science in accordance with the regulations of Ministerial Order No. 1039 of August 27, 2013 on the PhD Programme at the Universities and Certain Higher Artistic Educational Institutions.
