Ph.D. or Post-Doc position (m/f/d, E 13 TV-L, 100%)

Faculty of Science, Department of Computer Science

Application deadline : 25.11.2020

At the University of Tübingen, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Department of Computer Science, is a

Ph.D. or Post-Doc position (m/f/d, E 13 TV-L, 100%) – Wireless Spectrum Allocation using Multi-Agent Reinforcement Learning: Theory and Implementation

available to be filled as soon as possible. The position is limited until 30.09.2024

Project- and job description:

Spectrum allocation, which is a classical challenge in wireless communications networks, has recently entered a new phase due to the emergence of concepts such as IoT and artificial intelligence. While the heterogeneous structure of an ultra-dense network renders a centralized spectrum allocation implausible, one can rely on the learning and decision-making capacity of wireless devices to enable distributed spectrum sharing efficiently. Multi-agent reinforcement learning is a mathematical framework for such a scenario. The goal of this project is to develop decision-making strategies for efficient spectrum sharing in the framework of MA-RL. The strategies shall then be implemented and evaluated in a wireless testbed consisting of software-defined radio devices.

Profile description:

Applicants must possess a recent excellent M.Sc. or Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering (wireless communications), computer science (machine learning and artificial intelligence), or another tightly related field. A strong interest to implement wireless communications systems, and previous work experience with hardware such as FPGA, are necessary. Good programming skills (at least MATLAB or C++) and English proficiency are also essential. A strong mathematical background and knowledge of German language are highly desired.  

How to apply:

Please send your application as a single pdf file to Prof. Maghsudi (setareh.maghsudispam prevention@uni-tuebingen.de). The application should include (i) full CV including the de-scription of any practical project, publications, and the contact information of at least two references, (ii) transcripts records for both graduate and undergraduate levels, (iii) theses if in English or Ger-man, (iv) publications (if any). Only complete applications can be considered. 

The applications are considered on a rolling basis until the positions is filled. 

The university seeks to raise the number of women in research and teaching and therefore urges qualified women academics to apply for these positions. Equally qualified applicants with disabilities will be given preference. 

The employment will be carried out by the central administration of the University of Tübingen.
