RWTH Aachen - Chair for Distributed Signal Processing

There are different opportunities for excellent postdoctoral researchers, which are hired and compensated as full-time researchers, at the Chair for Distributed Signal Processing (Prof. Dr. Haris Gaèanin, of RWTH Aachen University in Aachen, Germany. Current positions are part of efforts toward the development of 6G radio access technologies and laboratory in the intersection of digital communications, traditional signal processing and machine learning with a particular focus on the development of novel radio interfaces for flexible radio networking architectures. The topics also include optimization and architecture of computing communications as the convergence of radio access and mobile cloud computing (more details at Employing AI/ML methodologies is strongly encouraged.

The Chair is a part of the Institute for Communication Technologies and Embedded Systems (ICE) performs R&D projects in different areas of embedded and cyber-physical system design (see Our main application domains are next-generation radio communications, automotive electronics, cyber-security, and Industry 4.0. ICE maintains tight cooperation with industry partners worldwide and has transferred numerous technologies to semiconductor vendors, system houses, and EDA companies.

The duration of the fellowship is 24 months with the possibility to further extend. RWTH Aachen University has been certified as a “Family-Friendly University” and top-ranked technical university in Germany with approx. 45,000 students. 

Research Assistant / Associate (w/m/d)

Work­ing field:

  • Con­tri­bute to R&D pro­jects in the areas of novel design of radio trans­mis­sion tech­no­lo­gies, novel radio resource manage­ment tech­ni­ques, novel radio net­wor­king archi­tec­tures
  • Theo­re­ti­cal ana­ly­sis, algo­rithm design and imple­men­ta­tion via soft­ware tools and pro­to­ty­p­ing proof-of-con­cept
  • Post­doc­to­ral rese­ar­chers are expec­ted to deve­lop their pro­jects with Ph.D. stu­dents and assist in tea­ching (lec­tures, exer­ci­ses, labs), and event orga­ni­za­tion
  • Sup­port chair’s pro­ject manage­ment and inter­act with our European and world­wide aca­de­mic and indus­try part­ners


App­li­cants must have a doc­to­rate/Ph.D. or equi­va­lent.
  • Ph.D. degree or equi­va­lent in elec­tri­cal engi­nee­ring, com­pu­ter sci­ence, infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy, mathe­ma­tics, or simi­lar/equi­va­lent fields.
  • Excel­lent know­ledge of digi­tal com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons, pro­ba­bi­lity theory and linear alge­bra with app­li­ca­ti­ons in signal pro­ces­sing (Fur­ther know­ledge of machine lear­ning is a plus)
  • Hands-on expe­ri­ence with embed­ded sys­tems, pre­fer­a­bly with at least one of the soft­ware-defi­ned radio plat­forms (Hands-on expe­ri­ence with RF and wire­less com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­no­lo­gies and pro­to­cols, as well as fami­lia­rity with instru­men­ta­tion is a must)
  • Good under­stan­ding of pro­ba­bi­lity theory and linear alge­bra with app­li­ca­ti­ons in signal pro­ces­sing is expec­ted
  • Excel­lent know­ledge in C and Linux, while expe­ri­ence in one or more of the fol­lo­wing pro­gramming lan­guages is a plus: Python, C++, Java, Ten­sor­Flow, Web-based pro­gramming
  • Excel­lent com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills while being able to work inde­pendently, with team player spi­rit
  • High pro­fi­ci­ency in oral and writ­ten Eng­lish
  • The suc­cess­ful post­doc­to­ral app­li­cants should have out­stan­ding rese­arch docu­men­ted by top-notch jour­nal and con­fe­rence publi­ca­ti­ons. We are loo­king for stron­gly moti­va­ted can­di­da­tes, who can work inde­pendently and coope­rate with Ph.D. stu­dents

For post­doc­to­ral rese­ar­chers both algo­rith­mic rese­arch through com­pu­ter simu­la­ti­ons and expe­ri­men­ting through pro­to­ty­p­ing are man­datory (inde­pendently or in a team). It is expec­ted that mis­sing skills will be proac­tively impro­ved. Post­doc­to­ral rese­ar­chers are expec­ted to deve­lop their rese­arch agenda on their own even as the first aut­hors.

What we of­fer:

The posi­tion is limi­ted to 2 years and is to be fil­led as soon as pos­si­ble. This is a full-time posi­tion.

The salary cor­re­sponds to level TV-L 14.
