Multiple research positions in IT and nonlinear fiber optics at TU Eindhoven

Jump to other IT Society Websites:
We are hiring 1 postdoctoral researcher and one fully-funded PhD student to work on the project FUN-NOTCH: Fundamentals of the Nonlinear Optical Channel. Both positions are available for four years and are in the Signal Processing Systems (SPS) group at the Technical University of Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
FUN-NOTCH is a 5-year research grant financed by the European Research Council (ERC Starting Grant). The PI is Dr. A. Alvarado and includes two fully-funded PhD students and two postdoctoral researchers. Some of the problems/topics that this project will address are discrete- and continuous-time channel models in the highly nonlinear regime, information theory and channel capacity analysis of the nonlinear fiber optical channel, modulation, signal shaping, and error control coding.
TU Eindhoven offers an extensive package of fringe benefits (e.g., excellent technical infrastructure, the possibility of child care, and excellent sports facilities). TU Eindhoven also offers a competitive salary, the possibility of a salary boost via the so-called 30% tax benefit rule (if certain conditions are met), as well as an 8% holiday, and 8.3% end-of-year annual supplement.
