  • Very good background in one or more of the following fields:
    • RF design for mmWave frequencies
    • signal processing
    • FPGA programming
    • programming of real-time operating systems
    • general understanding of 4G and/or 5G Physical Layer and MAC Layer


Eligibility Criteria

  • Early Stage Rule: Applicants should be, at the time of recruitment by the host institution, in the first four years (full- time equivalent) of their research careers and have not yet been awarded a doctoral degree. This is measured from the date when they obtained the degree, which would formally entitle them to embark on a doctorate.
