Junior Scientist (m/f/d) in the field of 6G reflective intelligent surfaces

- Center for Digital Safety & Security -

  • Wireless communication links between machines demand new properties such as low-latency, defined error probability, an interface to control algorithms and the ability to operate in challenging environments.
  • As member of our multidisciplinary, international team, you will investigate reflective intelligent surfaces (RIS) as novel technology for future 6G wireless communications systems in the millimeter wave (mmWave) frequency band.
  • You will create wireless wave propagation models for RIS and calibrate/validate their outcome with practical channel sounding experiments in the mmWave domain
  • You will establish a machine learning environment to control the RIS for highly reliable wireless communications in time-critical scenarios.
  • You will optimize the RIS design with respect to power consumption, complexity, training overhead and cost.
  • You will actively engage in collaborative research activities with industry partners to explore 6G RIS application scenarios.
  • You will participate in national and international research projects.
  • You will establish scientific collaboration inside and outside AI.
  • You will publish results in international conferences and journals.
Your qualifications as an Ingenious Partner:
  • ​Master of Science (MSc) degree in electrical engineering, computer engineering or a related field
  • Knowledge in numerical simulation tools (Matlab, Python), software defined radio systems and radio frequency millimeter wave design is a plus
  • Ability to combine theoretical reasoning with practical applications and experimentations
  • Ability to integrate in a multinational research team
  • Excellent written and spoken communication skills in English, readiness to acquire German language skills
What to expect:
The minimum gross annual salary with full-time employment according to the collective agreement is EUR 45.836,--. The actual salary will be determined individually, based on your qualifications and experience.
