At the Signals and Systems division, Department of Engineering Sciences, The Angstrom Laboratory. The position is for two years starting December 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.
Duties: To conduct original research in the area of signal- and information processing and control over wireless in-body area networks, in particular, (i) theoretical analysis of secure and resilient networked estimation and control subject to malicious attacks such as, e.g., data integrity, eavesdropping, and jamming attacks, (ii) algorithms for strategic system design, and (iii) integration of energy harvesting powered in-body networks, e.g, networks involving implanted devices. Relevant areas also include distributed and decentralized estimation- and control algorithm design suitable for in-body networks.
The duties include theoretical analysis, algorithm design and implementation via software-based simulations, and ex-vivo trials, and documentation in the form of technical papers and reports. Some teaching in the undergraduate and/or graduate education and supervision of PhD students may be included in the position not exceeding 20 %.
Qualifications required: To qualify for an employment as a post-doctor, the applicant must hold a PhD degree or a foreign qualification deemed equivalent to a PhD, and the PhD degree must have been obtained no more than three years prior to the application date; however, for example, periods of sick leave or parental leave are deducted from the three-year period.
For this position it is required to have a PhD in Signal Processing, Automatic Control or Wireless Communications, preferably with applications to networked systems or a closely related subject with high quality publications in the related area of signal processing, control and wireless sensor networks. Emphasis will be placed on a strong mathematical background and documented research experience in signal processing and control and/or wireless sensor networks. Experience of theoretical and experimental work within the field is important, as is experience of extensive programming in MATLAB. It is desired that the applicant has experience in the area of secure and resilient signal processing and control.
Uppsala University strives to be an inclusive workplace that promotes equal opportunities and attracts qualified candidates who can contribute to the University’s excellence and diversity. We welcome applications from all sections of the community and from people of all backgrounds.
Salary: Individually negotiated salary.
Starting date: December 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.
