The PhD stipends are available within the general study programme “Wireless Communications”.

Two sections at the Department of Electronic Systems, Aalborg University, Denmark have received a grant from the Danish Strategic Research Council to make a project in the area of sparse signal processing in wireless communications (SparSig).

The overall objectives of the project are:

  • To develop a theoretical and simulation framework for handling sparse signals in communication systems.
  • To develop techniques for sub-sampling, signal processing and signal regeneration of realistic RF communication signals, which are polluted with noise, non-linear distortion, and interfering signals.
  • To develop techniques for sparse signal transformation, signal processing, and signal regeneration of realistic audio and video signals, which cover an important class of signals in communication.
  • To experimentally prove the theoretical findings by implementing a prototype with the key electronics to show measured results.

To support this project we open several positions:

  1. PhD position (562/06-8-29219A): Sparse signal representation, signal transformation, and signal processing with focus on RF communication signals. The applicant must have a masters degree in communication technology, math or similar and a solid experience in signal processing, modeling, simulation techniques etc.
  2. PhD position (562/06-8-29219B): Sparse signal transformation and processing, and signal regeneration with focus on true audio and video signals. The applicant must have a masters degree in communication technology, math or similar and a solid experience in signal processing, modeling, simulation techniques etc.
  3. PhD position (562/06-8-29219C): Experimental verification of RF receivers based on sparse sampling and processing techniques as well as investigation of the performance degradation due to imperfect implementation components when using real life RF signals with interference and noise. The applicant must have a solid experience in RF circuits, RF measurement techniques, circuit design etc. Experience in IC design using Cadence is an advantage. To become PhD student in this area a masters degree is needed.
