Job description

The project aims at using new statistical learning methodology for applications in wireless communications. To that end the PhD student will work with Associate Professor Christophe A.N. Biscio, in collaboration with Professor Petar Popovski from the Connectivity Section at the Department of Electronic Systems. 

The position is available for a candidate who has knowledge and competencies in both mathematical statistics and engineering. In particular, an understanding of spatial statistics of point processes and random fields is an advantage. Moreover, the candidate must be highly motivated by inter-disciplinary research. Although the scientific content would be mainly in mathematics, the candidate will be expected to work on the engineering application of its work to wireless communication systems. In that sense, knowledge in information theory and/or signal processing is also considered an advantage.

Qualification requirements:

The PhD stipend has a duration of three years. Applicants to the PhD scholarship must hold a degree equivalent to a Danish Master's degree. Applicants enrolled at a Danish Master program who expect to graduate before the appointment date must forward a statement from the thesis supervisor, verified transcripts, a copy of the thesis contract, and documentation for the date of their final exam.

Please find information on admission requirements for PhD positions on the website of the Doctoral School.
