    You must have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) in engineering, specializing in telecommunication or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree. Good communication skills in English are required


    We are now seeking PhD students to do research on secure and ultra-reliable communication solutions for demanding applications in transport systems (for example drone or train control) and/or healthcare (body-sensors for patient monitoring or pre-hospital ICT solutions).

    The PhD students will to a large extent be doing experimental research and contribute to larger experiments together with other industrial and university partners – but some theoretical work is also expected.

    The PhD research will covers areas such as 5G/6G networks, IoT solutions, LP-WAN technologies, SDN and NFV, AI/ML, Time Sensitive Networking, Mission critical application etc. The prospective candidate should have an interest in communication network architecture and protocols, hardware-software interplay and reliable and secure end-to-end communicaton.

    All our research is to some extent related to national or international research programs and the PhD study will usually be related and integrated into one or more of these activities.
