Description

Project description

Next-generation 6G cellular systems will provide unprecedented capabilities in order to serve dependable data communication streams, as for example originating in industrial automation. While this application domain has received some attention in 5G, cyber-physical networking capabilities will be at the heart of upcoming 6G systems. This will be facilitated by data-driven methods that can be leveraged in end-to-end contexts providing predictable services.

Our research group has a decade-long track record in leading academic research with real-world impact in the area of industrial wireless networking. We are looking for an outstanding individual interested in integrating with a strong KTH-internal team as well as with external stakeholders in order to shape future 6G networks. We typically combine fundamental research work (leveraging methods from communication and queuing theory) with experimental testbed development and trials. Candidates with a strong track record in either of these domains (with respect to wireless networking) are encouraged to submit applications. Solid command of machine learning theory and/or practical skills is a plus.

Third-cycle subject: Electrical Engineering

Supervision: Professor James Gross

What we offer
  • The possibility to study in a dynamic and international research environment in collaboration with industries and prominent universities from all over the world.Read more
  • A workplace with many employee benefits and monthly salary according to KTH's Doctoral student salary agreement.
  • A postgraduate education at an institution that is active and supportive in matters pertaining to working conditions, gender equality and diversity as well as study environment.
  • Help to relocate and be settled in Sweden and at KTH.
  • Admission requirements

    To be admitted to postgraduate education (Chapter 7, 39 § Swedish Higher Education Ordinance), the applicant must have basic eligibility in accordance with either of the following:

  • passed a second cycle degree (for example a master's degree), or
  • completed course requirements of at least 240 higher education credits, of which at least 60 second-cycle higher education credits, or
  • acquired, in some other way within or outside the country, substantially equivalent knowledge
  • admission to third-cycle studies in Electrical Engineering requires the applicant to have completed courses equivalent to at least 120 higher education credits from second-cycle studies or higher in the subject Electrical Engineering or other subjects deemed directly relevant to the specialization in question. These requirements will also be considered fulfilled by applicants who have acquired the equivalent knowledge through other means. Normally, a master's degree in the relevant research domain fulfills these requirements.
  • In addition to the above, there is also a mandatory requirement for English equivalent to English B/6, read more here

    Selection

    In order to succeed as a doctoral student at KTH you need to be goal oriented and persevering in your work. During the selection process, candidates will be assessed upon their ability to:

  • independently pursue his or her work
  • collaborate with others,
  • have a professional approach and
  • analyse and work with complex issues.
  • The successful candidate has a strong background in wireless communications, mobile networks, and edge computing for industrial applications. Furthermore, candidates are expected to demonstrate experience in theoretical research on mobile networks leveraging communication theory and/or queuing theory.

    Additional experience in experimental research on mobile networks, and/or machine learning applications to wireless networks is a plus.

    After the qualification requirements, great emphasis will be placed on personal competency.

    Target degree: Doctoral degree

    Information regarding admission and employment

    Only those admitted to postgraduate education may be employed as a doctoral student. The total length of employment may not be longer than what corresponds to full-time doctoral education in four years ' time. An employed doctoral student can, to a limited extent (maximum 20%), perform certain tasks within their role, e.g. training and administration. A new position as a doctoral student is for a maximum of one year, and then the employment may be renewed for a maximum of two years at a time.
