Ph.D. Position (m/f/d, E 13 TV-L, 65%) –
Machine Learning Methods for Optimization of Mobile Wireless Networks

available to be filled from 01.01.2022. The position is limited to three years

Project description and duties: Using the AI/ML-based strategies that require no- or little prior information increases the efficiency of wireless networks in terms of computational- and radio resource expenditure. Besides, it improves the users’ experience in terms of delay and performance. They also reduce the signaling and feedback overhead, improve security and privacy, and are compatible with potential self-interest among devices, vendors, and stakeholders. In this project, the goal is to develop distributed AI/ML-based strategies to manage the mobility issues in wireless networks by optimizing the transmission mode selection, multi-connectivity, handover, and beam steering.  

Profile description: Applicants must possess a recent excellent M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering (wireless communications, signal processing, information theory), computer science (machine learning and artificial intelligence), operations research, or another tightly related field. A strong mathematical background and the interest/motivation to work on theoretical problems are absolutely necessary. Good programming skills (at least MATLAB or Python) and English proficiency are also required. Knowledge of German is a positive point.  

How to apply: Please send your application as a single pdf file to Prof. Maghsudi (setareh.maghsudispam The application should include (i) full CV including the contact information of at least two references, (ii) transcript records for both graduate and undergraduate levels, (iii) publications (if any), (iv) M.Sc. thesis.  

The applications should be sent before 30.09.2021. The review is performed on a rolling basis until the position is filled. Only complete applications can be considered. 

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.
