The Communication Networks Laboratory of the Department of Informatics & Telecommunications of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens is searching for interested candidates in two Early Stage Research positions in the famework of the Marie-Curie ETN SEMANTIC project.
The candidates must hold a Master degree in telecommunications, electrical, computer engineering or related disciplines, and should have experience in the area of wireless technologies and/or networks. The two positions are as follows:
UOA-1: Distributed MIMO with analog-beamforming and self-contained transmissions
Description (Targets): Become expert in distributed MIMO and PHY transmission techniques for 5G and beyond networks, develop analytical models and antenna designs for distributed MIMO using self-contained transmissions for 5G coverage boosting, performance assessment using Simulink and NI equipment
UOA-2: Edge content placement and delivery in converged MEC/RAN
Description (Targets): Become expert on information-centric networking and MEC service provisioning, develop forward-thinking strategies for popularity prediction and content placement/delivery at the network edge, mathematical analysis/simulation-driven performance evaluation of the proposed strategies
We are looking for highly motivated, enthusiastic junior scientists, with a MSc in computer engineering, telecommunications, or related fields, aiming at significantly improving their career perspectives in both public and private sectors.
Required: Excellent research skills and analytical abilities, fluency in English (spoken and written), proactive communication skills and problem solving as part of a team, solid programming skills, strong record keeping, great work ethic and initiative.
Desired: Previous experience in fields related to the specific positions is a plus.
The positions are fully funded for 3 years by the European Commission under the H2020 Marie Curie Innovative Training Network Programme. Candidates should be in their first four years of their research career (measured from the date when they obtained the degree which would formally entitle them to embark on a doctorate), and not having awarded a doctoral degree. Candidates could be of any nationality but not having resided or carried out their main activity in Greece for more than 1 year in the past 3 years. The recruited ESRs will be highly encouraged to enroll to the Ph.D. programme of the department.
A full-time fixed-term contract is offered per pisition. Marie Curie ITNs provide competitive financial support to the ESR including: a competitive monthly living and mobility allowance (salary in the range between 34000 and 38000 € gross per year), coverage of the expenses related to the participation of the ESR in research and training activities (contribution to research-related costs, meetings, conference attendance, training actions, etc.).
The recruited researchers will have a regular contract with the same rights and obligations as any other staff member of the university. The ESRs should start within 2 months of the acceptance of the fellowship, which should be done during 2020.
