Post Doc in High-Throughput Coding at DTU
A postdoctoral position on high-throughput error-correcting coding is available in the coding group in the Communication Technology Section at DTU Fotonik.

We are seeking a post doc candidate to work on advanced high-throughput coding for optical communication. The focus will be on fast forward error-correction (FEC). The applications include Data Center Interconnects and optical core networks. You will be conducting research on high-throughput, FEC for optical communication, striving for Tbit/s communication at output bit-error rates of 10 -15 and better. For high performance, you will conduct research in fast soft-decision (SD) FEC within a scheme of concatenated coding. The postdoc project will be part of the Innovation Fund Denmark INCOM project centred at DTU Fotonik.
