Joint postdoc position at ASU, NJIT, and ARL in Secure and Authentic Communications available immediately (filled)

A joint postdoc position at Arizona State University, the New Jersey Institute of Technology, and the US Army Research Laboratory in the area of secure and authentic communications, is available immediately. The successful candidate will be working with the research groups of Prof. Oliver Kosut and Prof. Joerg Kliewer in collaboration with the US Army Research Laboratory.

Specific topics of focus are secret key establishment and management in austere communication environments consisting of both traditional and quantum channels, where both practical aspects and a fundamental information-theoretic understanding will be considered.

The appointment will be for a period of two years. We are looking for strong applicants with an excellent theoretical background and a proven capacity for high-quality research in form of a strong publication record. Interested applicants should submit a current CV, a 1-page research statement and a list of three references.  Candidates should contact us via email at okosut at asu dot edu, jkliewer at njit dot edu and paul.l.yu.civ at mail dot mil.

Two Ph.D. positions available starting Fall 2015

I have two Ph.D. positions available in my group starting in Fall 2015 in the following areas:

  • Coding and information theory for coordination and communication in wireless networks
  • Design and theory of spatially coupled low density parity check codes and their application in source compression and secure communication
  • Network error correction and network coding

In order to qualify for these positions, you should have excellent mathematical skills, good knowledge in coding and information theory, a M.Sc. degree (or equivalent) in these or related areas, and a strong interest to pursue theoretical research.

If you are interested, please send me your CV as soon as possible including a list of publications and a copy of your transcript together with a brief statement of research interests and a statement in which of the above research topics you are particularly interested in.

Postdoctoral Position at NJIT’s Center for Wireless Communications and Signal Processing Research Starting January 2015

Update: Thanks for your interest, but the position has now been filled.

———————————————————————————

The Elisha Yegal Bar-Ness Center for Wireless Communications and Signal Processing Research at NJIT is looking for a highly-qualified postdoctoral researcher in the areas of coding and information theory, starting January 1, 2015. Strong applicants with an excellent theoretical background and a proven capacity for high-quality research are solicited in the broad areas of graph-based coding theory, polar codes, their applications (e.g., low complexity codes, coding for storage, control, or secrecy), and network information theory.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. (or be close to completion) in electrical engineering or a related field (such as mathematics or statistics). The initial appointment will be for 12 months. Compensation will be competitive and applications are requested by September 30, 2014 or until the position is filled.

Please contact me (Prof. Joerg Kliewer, jkliewer AT njit DOT edu) directly to apply. Your email shall include a short motivation statement describing why you intent to do a postdoc and a detailed research statement addressing your past experience in the above research areas, a full CV, and two names of professors or supervisors, acting as reference for you. To be formally considered you are also required to apply on the NJIT jobs website.
