Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Faculty IV - Institute of High-Frequency and Semiconductor System Technologies

Research Assistant - salary grade E13 TV-L Berliner Hochschulen

part-time employment may be possible

The chair for High Frequency Systems was recently founded within the Faculty for Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at TU Berlin and is dedicated to microwave and mm-wave technology with strong links to systems and communications engineering. It will be equipped with state-of-the art laboratories and an anechoic measurement chamber, suitable to develop and evaluate radio frontends and antenna systems up to the sub-THz frequency range (30 GHz – 500 GHz). The chair is led by Prof. Wilhelm Keusgen who has a strong background in microwave engineering.

The research work at the chair is intended to the development of technologies for mobile networks of the sixth generation (6G). We are mainly interested in novel physical-layer, frontend and antenna techniques for mobile communication in the mm-wave and sub-THz frequency bands. To support us in this work, we are looking for a research associate to start as soon as possible.

Working field:

  • Carry research and development of multi-antenna systems for future 6G radios.
  • Integration and optimization of software and hardware components for mobile radio systems.
  • Setup and execution of radio transmission experiments and over-the-air measurements in the antenna measurement chamber.
  • Supervise student assistants, B.Sc students, and M.Sc students on topics of the research project.


  • Successfully completed university degree (Master, Diplom or equivalent) in a field related to Communication Engineering, Computer Science, Wireless Systems.
  • Very good knowledge of mobile communications as well as of the protocol stack of modern mobile networks (LTE, 5G, 6G).
  • Sound GNU/Linux system knowledge and very good programming skills in Matlab, Python, JavaScript, C/C++
  • Ability to learn new languages, APIs and frameworks.
  • Experience with laboratory measurement techniques.
  • A team player who can work with a high level of independence and has a proactive and solution-oriented attitude.
  • Furthermore, candidates should have excellent English oral and written communication skills (proficiency in German is a plus).

Desirable Knowledge:
  • Experience in implementing and programming software-defined radios, embedded systems, or in integrating SoCs and FPGAs.
  • Basic knowledge of wave propagation, remote sensing, and imaging.
  • Experience with antenna and microwave design.
