The exploratory research to be carried out by the project encompasses mathematical and simulation-based performance evaluation as well as the design of radically new quantum / classical wireless systems based on new sophisticated arrangements. Therefore, having a solid theoretical background in their mathematical analysis is absolutely essential. In addition, you will have excellent programming software skills and experience in Bayesian learning and millimeter wave communications and its extension to quantum machine learning.

To be successful, you will have a doctorate or equivalent professional qualification and experience in millimeter wave communications assisted by Bayesian learning. In addition, a record of prolific publications in top IEEE journals is expected. As part of the European Research Council QuantCom’s Advanced Fellow project, an excellent publication record is essential in the areas mentioned above, as the prestigious ERC funding program expects a substantial dissemination of the results of this emerging frontier research.

This position is full-time, for a fixed term until 05/31/2023.
