PAINLESS Early Stage Researcher 15: Ultra-reliable Low Latency Connectivity
Aalborg University, Department of Electronic Systems is seeking to appoint one high-calibre Early Stage Researcher (ESR) to join the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network on ‘energy-autonomous Portable Access points for INfrastructure-LESS networks – (PAINLESS)’.
The ESR15 project objectives are to design reliable wireless connections for the transmission of control/coordination information among UAV-BSs, as well as over the ground-UAV links. A key challenge in this project is to tackle the problem of ensuring coverage and reliable connectivity during transitions between different constellations of UAVs. The project should include both communication theoretic aspects as well as prototyping and lab experiments.
The ESR’s PhD must be designed and conceived as an integral part of the overall PAINLESS project. The successful candidate will be a team player, prepared to work closely with the Project’s senior staff and other ESRs.
All candidates must meet the following requirements a) and b):
a) Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs) shall at the time of recruitment by the host organisation be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and not yet have been awarded a doctoral degree. Full-time equivalent research experience is measured from the date when a researcher obtained the degree which would formally entitle him or her to embark on a doctorate, either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the researcher is recruited.
b) At the time of recruitment by the host organisation, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the three years immediately prior to the recruitment date. Compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays are not taken into account.
