Research & development - Gent Zwijnaarde | More than two weeks ago
We are looking for enthusiastic candidates to perform research in the domains below in both national and international projects.
Ghent University is one of the most important education and research institutions in the Low Countries, ranked 71 in the Academic Ranking of World Universities (http://www.shanghairanking.com/). On a daily basis, over 15,000 staff members and 49,000 students implement its motto "Dare to Think". Ghent University's mission statement is characterized by qualitative education, internationally renowned research and a pluralistic social responsibility.
The "WAVES" research group (http://www.waves.intec.ugent.be/) is the expertise center of the Department of Information Technology of Ghent University/IMEC in Belgium for measurements, simulations and modeling of the radio channel and electromagnetic exposure of current and future wireless networks.
6th generation wireless networks will use new mm-wave and sub-terahertz spectrum bands to realize the bandwidth needed for ubiquitous connectivity. The exploration of this new radio spectrum is needed to enable beyond 5G high-capacity applications. In the 140 GHz D-band (110 to 170 GHz) sufficient bandwidth is available to realize 6G applications such as wireless backhaul and fixed wireless access, close proximity data kiosks, and augmented and virtual reality. Device-free D-band passive indoor localization (radar) plays also a critical role in emerging assisted-living applications in the elder care, as well as in smart home, entertainment, industrial, and security applications. The expectation is that the changes in the 6G networks will also change the electromagnetic exposure of the general public.
Important research domains in this context are:
