PhD Position: How to Communicate with Nano-devices
Delft University of Technology, Netherlands
|Scholarship / Financial aid: € 2,000 per month gross|
Date: a fixed period of four years
Deadline: 1 December, 2008
Open to: researchers that have an MSc degree in electrical engineering
The International Research Centre for Telecommunications and Radar (IRCTR) of Delft University of Technology performs internationally recognized research in the areas of radar, remote sensing and telecommunications.
Nano-technology in electronics and mechanics aims at the development of very small devices, e.g., mm3 scale and smaller, which are computationally powerful and able to perform a wide variety of tasks, including environment sensing and actuation, information extraction and communication. Wireless communications between such devices is an emerging and challenging area of research and will be the topic of this PhD investigation. The research will focus on the physical layer aspects of communication for nano-devices based on the transmission and reception of electromagnetic (EM) fields, processing the received signals and extracting information from them.
The researcher should have an MSc degree in electrical engineering or physics and experience in the field of electromagnetics and statistical signal detection. Preference is given to those who have both theoretical knowledge and practical experience. The candidate should have the ability to perform independent research as well as work in a team on research projects.
Conditions of employment
The estimated starting salary for the PhD student is € 2,000 per month gross, with a maximum of € 2,558 gross (based on a full-time appointment and depending on experience). The successful candidate will be employed by Delft University of Technology for a fixed period of four years within which he/she is expected to write a doctoral thesis.
