3 Postdoctoral Research Associate Positions in Telecommunications at the University of Sydney, Australia
Huawei Paris is looking for candidates for permanent junior and senior research positions in channel coding and lattice coding for wireless and optical communications.
ITSOC wishes to encourage Society members to consider the petitions for write-in candidates for the IEEE Election.
A post-doctoral research position is now available in the Department of Informatics at King's College London. The post is funded by the European Research Council (ERC) for a project on fog-aided wireless networks. The successful candidate should have a PhD in Computer Science or Electrical Engineering with expertise in information theory and ideally also in machine learning.
The IEEE TAB has established a new Committee on Diversity and Inclusion based on the recommendations of the Ad Hoc Committee on Women and Under-represented Groups.
A postdoctoral research position in the field of information theory is now available in the Department of Electrical Engineering - Systems at Tel Aviv University, Israel. Starting in October 2017 (or later) for up to two years. Funded by the European Research Council (ERC).
Joint Postdoc Position at ASU and Harvard
The Optical Algorithm Design team of the Mathematical and Algorithmic Sciences Lab, Huawei France Research Center, located in the Paris area, is seeking strong candidates for two permanent research positions in optical fiber communications. The research will focus on algorithms and coded modulation schemes to drive innovation in the context of high-speed coherent optical communications. The successful candidates will be involved in the development of competitive solutions for complex fiber optical transmission systems and of future key technology based on the non-linear Fourier transform.
The Center for Science of Information (CSoI) invites nominations and applications for its CSoI Research Fellows program.
A joint postdoc position at Arizona State University, the New Jersey Institute of Technology, and the US Army Research Laboratory in the area of secure and authentic communications, is available immediately.
