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. A central cornerstone of such 6G systems
will be the notion of predictability of integrated wireless/wired
communication and compute network routes.
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
typically combine fundamental research work (leveraging methods from
communication and queuing theory) with experimental testbed development and
trials. We are now looking for an outstanding individual interested in
preparing a future academic or industrial leadership career in the area of 6G
networking for industrial automation. Beyond performing and leading excellent
research in this domain over the next years, we will also expect from you to
integrate with a strong KTH team as well as with external stakeholders in
joint projects and research centers.
