Call for PhD student, Aalborg University6.1.2013
A PhD Position for a student available as part of the TuneSCode project, recently approved by the Danish Council of Independent Research. Here some highlights:
- The project will look at tunable sparse network coding in wireless networks, a new and promising technique to tune code design and network management to strike a balance between computational effort at senders, receivers, and intermediate devices and throughput/delay performance.
- The student will be based in Aalborg University working with a dynamic team focusing on network coding and mobile networks research, but will spend 1 to 3 months each of the 3 years of the PhD in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
- The student will carry out both theoretical analysis and practical implementations of the concepts, algorithms, and protocols, ideally in mobile devices.
For this position, we are looking for a student with the following profile:
- Background on communication systems, preferably wireless and/or mobile communications. This is highly desired but candidates from other disciplines will be considered based on their merits and potential.
- Background on mathematics, probability, and/or error correcting codes is highly desired.
- Background on programming, particularly C++, is highly desired. (Mobile phone programming is a plus)
- Master degree granted or to be granted before september 2013.
