    Call for applications 2022

    IHP has the pleasure to invite applications for the

    International IHP „Wolfgang Mehr“ Fellowship Award 2022


    “Signal processing algorithms for MIMO communications”

    The International IHP „Wolfgang Mehr“ Fellowship Award is devoted to develop in close collaboration with IHP a new topic of research in the area of “Signal processing algorithms for MIMO wireless communications”. Following the spirit of IHP´s former Scientific Director Wolfgang Mehr, the annual fellowship award is assigned to an innovative, interdisciplinary research topic with high potential for technology breakthroughs, giving a high degree of freedom to the award winner to work in an interdisciplinary environment with a strong drive to overcome frontiers among various research disciplines.

    The winner of the International IHP „Wolfgang Mehr“ Fellowship Award 2022 must hold an excellent, international reputation and will receive the prize money of 12,500 euro, honoring the award winner´s research achievements. The aim of the fellowship award is to realize at least one of the following strategic research targets in close collaboration with IHP:

    • identify the potential of a future research direction
    • initiate a new, innovative research project
    • intensify a successful research collaboration

    Special focus should be devoted to Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces (RIS)-assisted multiuser MIMO communications research approaches that optimize the rate and energy efficiency of future wireless networks, as well as reduce system hardware costs and signal processing complexity. Novel signal processing schemes and wireless technologies targeting ultra-reliable and scalable connectivity with limited overhead, probably through non-coherent MIMO schemes, are also topics of interest for this research line.

    In 2022, fellowship projects corroborating the future research directions related to “Wireless Broadband Communication” are accepted. RIS-aided communication is an appealing technology for future integration with other emerging wireless applications and communication systems. RISs also confront new challenges that hinder integrating efficiently into B5G and 6G wireless networks. In particular, this topic will be researched in support of IHP’s broadband wireless solutions portfolio. The award winner must be endowed with a strong background in signal processing algorithms and information-theoretic aspects of multiuser multi-antenna wireless communication systems, multivariate statistical techniques, and machine learning theories. A strong drive towards connecting with interdisciplinary and international R&D networks which are currently laying the foundations of future systems is expected. 

    Application deadline May 31, 2022

    2 PhD Positions

    2 PhD positions (m/f/d) on analysis of 5G network parameters for real-time wireless communication

    Job-ID: 4054/22 | Department: Wireless Systems | Salary: as per tariff TV-L | Working time: 40h/week (part-time work option) | Limitation: initially 2 years with option of extension for three more years | Starting Date: as soon as possible

    The position:

    As a member of the research group Elastic Computing within the department Wireless Systems you will contribute to research into the latest development in real-time wireless communication. Your tasks will include the theoretical and experimental analysis of wireless communication in various use cases. The overall goal is to investigate innovative means to assess the current state of the network and to allow its prediction for short and midterm future. This also includes research and development of appropriate mitigation means. An international team of 4 scientists including very experienced scientists as well as PhD students is looking forward to you. Flat hierarchies and mutual support are important to us. We see diversity of perspectives as a great advantage and we strive for a balanced gender mix in our team.


    Your PhD project:

    With your doctorate on analysis of the network parameters like bandwidth or latency you improve communication within drone swarms or enhance environmental monitoring applications with drones in 5G-networks. It is supported by an experienced supervisor and accompanied within the framework of a supervision agreement. We aim together for a completion within 3-5 years. After one and a half years, the topic will be finally defined and the contract duration will be adjusted accordingly by mutual agreement to the foreseeable doctoral period.

    Your qualifications:

    You hold a Master's degree in Computer Science or Telecommunications or a comparable study area. You are already experienced in wireless communication fundamentals (medium access control and routing protocols), Artificial Intelligence methods, load balancing and software implementation (Python, C). Experience in programming of embedded devices is a plus.

    Application deadline until May 31, 2022
