Postdoc on information theory for joint communication and sensing

Published Deadline Location
6 Nov tomorrow Eindhoven

Job description

We are recruiting a postdoctoral researcher to work with Dr. Hamdi Joudeh on information theory for joint communication and sensing (JCAS). This is a full-time position for two years and will be based in the Information and Communication Theory (ICT) Lab within the Electrical Engineering (EE) Department at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).

General Motivation and Research Topic

The integration of radio communication and sensing services in the same network infrastructure will be a key feature of next generation wireless technology. It is envisaged that wireless transceivers will be able to communicate with active devices, and simultaneously detect, localize, and track passive targets within their vicinity; all using the same spectrum and hardware resources. This emerging JCAS paradigm, currently at the frontier of wireless research, will revolutionize a broad range of applications, from automotive and transportation to healthcare and environmental monitoring.

This postdoc position is focused on developing a principled information theoretic framework for JCAS. The goal is to establish fundamental performance limits and trade-offs; and provide guiding principles for the design of efficient and reliable JCAS-enabled wireless systems.
