We expect you to participate in and to lead research projects at the interface between mobile communications, signal processing, and integrated security. Your tasks will include the design and development of wireless communication system components and their analytical and simulative performance evaluation.

In addition, your future role includes the analysis and implementation of secure and efficient wireless communications solutions (taking into account recent research, e.g. in physical layer security). Your tasks also include the supervision of Bachelor and Master theses, the scientific support of PhD students, and the authoring of scientific reports and publications.

What we expect from you
We seek a highly motivated post-doctoral fellow who is willing to travel. You must hold an outstanding scientific degree in Electrical Engineering/Telecommunications Engineering, Physics, or Mathematics, or related fields, and a PhD in one of the aforementioned fields. The ideal candidate has earned a PhD on topics related to information theory, physical layer security for communications, signal processing for communication, or optimization of communication techniques.

  • Excellent knowledge of spoken and written English (German language skills are a plus) and excellent communication skills.
  • Analytical skills and very strong mathematical acumen.
  • Strong expertise in signal processing and/or mathematical optimization.
  • Excellent understanding of (mobile) telecommunications.
  • Sound programming experience in Matlab or Python.
  • Profound knowledge in several of the following topics: Information Theory and Physical-Layer Security, Signal Processing for Communications, and Optimization in Communication Networks.
  • Knowledge on current developments in machine-learning for communications are beneficial.

What you can expect from us
We offer you a scientifically first-class work environment in a leading research institute, contacts to international industrial companies and research institutes, as well as flexible working hours to reconcile work and family life.

Appointment, remuneration, and social security benefits based on the public-sector collective wage agreement (TVöD). Additionally Fraunhofer may grant performance-based variable remuneration components.
