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!
This is a fully funded position for 3 years (extendable to an additional 4th year) 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 our industrial partner SES (https : / / www.ses.com / ). Therefore, the objectives of the PhD project are defined in accordance to the project directions, and also aligned with the research interest of SES towards their next-generation of satellite systems.
More precisely, this project aims to explore the benefits of edge / fog processing and the role of satellite in enabling collaborative edge-cloud processing for reducing end-to-end latency and for enhancing Quality of Service (QoS) in mission critical applications towards enhancing the important performance metrics including end-to-end latency, low-power connectivity / energy efficiency and ultra-high reliability.
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.
The position holder will be required to perform the following tasks :
Qualification : The candidate should possess an M.Sc. / M.Eng. Degree in Telecommunication Engineering, signal processing, satellite communications or a closely related field in Electronic, Electrical and Computer Engineering.
Experience : The candidate should have some knowledge and experience in some of the following topics :
and be familiar with the principles of
Language Skills : Fluent written and verbal communication skills in English are required.
