Position: Research Associate (Postdoc) in Satellite-assisted Edge Caching and Multicasting in Beyond 5G Networks
Institution: University of Luxembourg
Location: Luxembourg City, Luxembourg
Duties: The objectives of the project are aligned with the research interests of SES towards their next-generation of satellite systems. More precisely, this project aims to research, develop and validate payload resource optimization (e.g. carrier bandwidth, beam design/allocation) and the corresponding edge caching algorithms towards enabling the combination of broadband and broadcast capabilities in a single payload in future SatCom systems while utilizing the ongoing advances in digital transparent processing and dynamic beamforming
Requirements: A PhD degree in Telecommunication Engineering, or Electrical Engineering, Satellite Communications or Computer Science/engineering with a focus on wireless communications; Sound publication track-record in the areas related to wireless or satellite communications, edge caching and digital beamforming; Knowledge of one or multiple areas listed below is highly desirable: Edge caching, load balancing, dynamic resource management; Integrated satellite-terrestrial architectures/networks; Onboard processing and payload resource optimization; Digital twins; Information-Centric Networking (ICN); Experience with optimization and/or machine learning algorithms/tools; Strong programming skills in MATLAB. Python or C++ is a plus; Experience of working with industrial projects or public funded research projects related to edge caching and beamforming is highly desirable; Highly committed, excellent team-worker, and strong critical thinking skills; Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English
   
Text: UOL03888 31-Dec-2099 About the SnT SnT is a leading international research and innovation centre in secure, reliable and trustworthy ICT systems and services. We play an instrumental role in Luxembourg by fueling innovation through research partnerships with industry, boosting R&D investments leading to economic growth, and attracting highly qualified talent. The Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) invites applications from PhD holders in the general area of network slicing for next generation satellite systems within its SigCom research group. SnT carries out interdisciplinary research in secure, reliable and trustworthy ICT systems and services, often in collaboration with industrial, governmental or international partners. For further information, you may refer to www.securityandtrust.lu The SigCom research group, headed by Prof. Björn Ottersten and Prof. Symeon Chatzinotas, carries out research activities in the areas of signal processing for wireless communication systems including satellite communications and radar systems, and is rapidly expanding its research areas to various enabling technologies for beyond 5G/6G wireless networks including the next generation of satellite communication systems. For details, you may refer to the following: https://wwwen.uni.lu/snt/research/sigcom 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! Your Role This is a fully funded position for 2 years 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).
