Position Description :
To augment the current research and investigate interesting novel problems identified in the aforementioned areas, the SPARC group is looking for a Doctoral candidate to work in any of the aforementioned applications of next generation radar networks.
The research would be based on radar signal processing principles and would involve system modelling, use of optimization or data-driven methods for system optimization and an elaborate performance analysis.
The PhD would focus on one of the following
Theoretical performance bounds on radar tasks in distributed radar networks with the use of large reflective surfaces and robust estimation algorithms
Novel high mobility joint radar and communication systems exploring novel architectures (ultra-massive MIMO, intelligent surfaces), new modulation techniques exploiting available dimensions in next generation sub-THz / THz systems
Novel approaches to radar based health monitoring, including vital sign monitoring in the absence of a controlled environment through the use of distributed sensors
Novel algorithms and architectures for distributed point cloud processing for target detection, identification and tracking
Statistical analysis of interference in radar networks
Novel radar related applications including automotive, autonomous vehicles, in-cabin monitoring, occupancy sensing, drones, multi-copters, gesture recognition, smart buildings, smart street lighting, smart factories, and robotics.
Novel methodologies for improving the performance of radar systems for weather applications, and dual use radar systems.
Qualification : The candidate should possess (or be in the process of completing) a master degree or equivalent in Electrical / Electronic Engineering, Computer Science or Applied Mathematics or Physics with electromagnetic background.
Experience : The ideal candidate should have good theoretical background in a number of the following topics :
Radar Systems and Signal Processing
Multiuser MIMO Communications, 5G
Signal Processing in Wireless Sensor Networks
Development skills in MATLAB / python / LabView is required and exposure to latest communication and radar technologies, linear algebra and Tensors are desirable.
Exposure to HW prototyping using USRPs and experience with radar sensors (FMCW, CW, pulse, ...) would be a plus.
Language Skills : Fluent written and verbal communication skills in English are required.
