Job description

Vacancy: Top researcher for 6G propagation and channel modelling
The "WAVES" research group (http://www.waves.intec.ugent.be/) is the expertise center of the Department of Information Technology of Ghent University/IMEC in Belgium for measurements, simulations and modeling of the radio channel and electromagnetic exposure of current and future wireless networks.

6th generation wireless networks will use new mm-wave and sub-terahertz spectrum bands to realize the bandwidth needed for ubiquitous connectivity. The exploration of this new radio spectrum is needed to enable beyond 5G high-capacity applications. In the 140 GHz D-band (110 to 170 GHz) sufficient bandwidth is available to realize 6G applications such as wireless backhaul and fixed wireless access, close proximity data kiosks, and augmented and virtual reality. Device-free D-band passive indoor localization (radar) plays also a critical role in emerging assisted-living applications in the elder care, as well as in smart home, entertainment, industrial, and security applications. The expectation is that the changes in the 6G networks will also change the electromagnetic exposure of the general public.
Important research domains in this context are:

  • D-band radio channel measurements and modeling
  • Industrial D-band channel
  • 140 GHz propagation and radar for people and object localization and tracking
  • 6G D-band human electromagnetic exposure assessment

Job profile

Candidates with a Master’s degree in Electrical engineering, Physics engineering, or a related Master of Science degree qualify for this research job.
We are looking for enthusiastic candidates to perform research in the domains above in both national and international projects. We offer a pleasant work climate within a young dynamic team and the possibility of obtaining a PhD.
