We’re looking for people driven by excellence, excited about innovation, and looking to make a difference. If this sounds like you, you’ve come to the right place!

Your Role

This is a fully funded position for 2 years within a large, national research project (INSTRUCT - IN tegrated S atellite- T e R restrial Systems for U biquitous Beyond 5G C ommunica T ions).

The project is run in close cooperation with SES (https : / / / ). Therefore, the objectives of the project are aligned with the research interests of SES towards their next-generation of satellite systems.

More precisely, this project aims to research, develop and validate payload resource optimization (e.g. carrier bandwidth, beam design / allocation) and the corresponding edge caching algorithms towards enabling the combination of broadband and broadcast capabilities in a single payload in future SatCom systems while utilizing the ongoing advances in digital transparent processing and dynamic beamforming.

The successful candidate will work with an academic supervisor from the University of Luxembourg and with an industrial supervisor from SES, and will join a strong and motivated research team led by Prof.

Björn Ottersten and Prof. Symeon Chatzinotas. The candidate is also expected to spend 25% of his / her time at the SES headquarters in Betzdorf, Luxembourg.
