The Chair of Theoretical Information Technology has an immediate opening for a Doctoral student; Postdoctoral student: Embedded Security / Physical Layer Security for Post Shannon Communication Systems (E13 TVL) (f/m/d)

The joint project "Post Shannon Communication," is being funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). In this joint project, transmission systems that go beyond Shannon's communication approach are to be developed in order to achieve more efficient information transmission for selected applications. The position is initially limited to three years. An extension is possible.
