Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral fellow in communications and coding for channels with memory
Fiber-optic channels usually have a long memory due to the physical properties of lightwave propagation in combination with signal processing algorithms in transmitters and receivers. The traditional approach to such channels is to make them virtually memoryless by interleaving, and then apply classical physical-layer techniques optimized for memoryless channels. In this project, we will instead omit the interleaver and design channel-aware physical layer algorithms. Specifically, innovative coding, decoding, and channel estimation techniques are expected. The performance will be evaluated in terms of packet error rate theoretically and in simulations (no experiments), when applied to simplified optical channel models with memory. At the Department of Electrical Engineering, we conduct internationally renowned research spanning many fields and including information and communication theory, machine learning, and signal processing. We offer a dynamic, supportive, international research environment with about 150 employees from more than 20 countries and an extensive national and international collaboration network that encompasses both other academic partners and industry. Our working language is English. You will belong to a strong team of researchers in optical communications, organized in the research center FORCE. This center brings together researchers in communications, photonics, and electronics to solve hard problems in optical communications through a cross-disciplinary approach. The collaboration bridges traditional discipline boundaries and includes the whole chain from components to networks, from analysis to experiments.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral positions in Quantum Nanophotonics
The positions are in the brand-new Quantum Photonics Laboratory (QPL). We are scientists, applied physicists, and engineers. We explore the flow of and interactions between light, sound, and microwaves. Today’s demand for computing and connectivity is on a steep trajectory. There is no reliable path to a sustainable growth in our capabilities to compute and connect. A key issue is the excessive energy loss caused by communication. In classical datacenters and computers, this energy loss leads to heating and greenhouse gas emissions. In emerging quantum processors, the energy loss prevents scaling up small quantum devices into more powerful distributed systems. We believe using light for communication is our only hope for solving this. To do so, we must convert microwave signals onto light. We are developing new hardware to this end. Read more on our webpage and in this popular science article. This project is part of the Wallenberg Centre for Quantum Technology (WACQT), a 12-year, billion-SEK initiative with the purpose of advancing Swedish academia and industry to the forefront of quantum technology, and to build a Swedish quantum computer. We are members of the Quantum Technology division in the Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience (MC2).

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: PostDoc in Formal Analysis of Autonomous Systems
Our group is looking for candidates interested in conducting independent research in the area of formal analysis of learning-enabled autonomous systems. Autonomous Systems (AS) have great potential to improve our ways of life, increasing mobility, cutting costs, and saving lives. Considering the complexity of the environments these systems operate in, AS increasingly rely on artificial intelligence (AI) to perform a variety of challenging decision-making tasks. Machine learning (ML) has been the driving force in addressing many of the challenges, especially in complex tasks such as perception, planning, and control. The use of ML in autonomous systems is projected to grow but with it also the concern of using ML models in safety-critical applications. While indispensable for autonomy, ML models can be brittle; unanticipated changes in the environment may cause a neural network to produce faulty outcomes that could endanger the safety of the system. This raises the question of how we need to adapt the development process to build safe and reliable learning-enabled AS.
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc in Doping of Conjugated Polymers for Wearable Electronics
The goal of your project will be to develop methods that allow to study the electrical and mechanical properties in-situ and characterize materials that are of interest for thermoelectrics and wearable electronics, including e-textiles. You will work closely with several PhD students in our group, as well as with several external collaborators, and together study the mechanical, electrical and electrochemical properties of different types of doped conjugated polymers.

Our recent paper about tuning of the elastic modulus through doping is a good example of the type of work that your project will entail (Materials Horizons 2022, 9, 433; https://doi.org/10.1039/D1MH01079D).
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc positions in the Chalmers Molecular Spectral Design Initiative
This project aims to facilitate the computational study of optical effects arising in modified base pairs and photoswitches when they are incorporated into an RNA/DNA environment. The challenge we face is that the general analysis of electronic structure today is (typically) reliant on Kohn-Sham (KS) Density Functional Theory (DFT). This methodology is the veritable engine of computational material science, chemistry, and physics because it provides an attractive balance between accuracy and cost. However, KS-DFT suffers from several well-known drawbacks. Foremost among these limitations is the tenuous connection between the energies of KS-DFT eigenstates (the orbitals) and physical reality as revealed, for example, in optical excitations. Crucial leadups to this project is development of a formally exact and orbital-free DFT expression for the average energy of electrons, and beyond state-of-the-art DFT methodology exceptionally well suited to describe base-pair interactions. In the Chalmers Molecular Spectral Design Initiative, you will help to combine these advances, with for example, Koopman-compliant, generalized Kohn-Sham or time-dependent DFT methodologies and for chemical bonding analysis. As a postdoctoral researcher in this project (two will be hired), you will work on theory and modeling. However, analysis and design efforts will leverage extensive experimental spectroscopic data and insight from derivatives of RNA/DNA nucleobase analogs and DNA-bound molecular photoswitches.
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc position in secure localization and sensing for 6G
As mobile communication systems tend to have higher frequencies, they start to behave like radar. This will bring the ability for 6G systems to localize and track people and objects with a high degree of accuracy. As we will increasingly rely on such services, there are increasing risks in terms of privacy and security. Within this research project, you will work on a framework for security and privacy for localization and sensing. This position is part of several ongoing projects on 5G and Beyond 5G localization in which you will gain not only theoretical knowledge but also industry contacts. You can check out our recent publications in this field. You will be part of the Communication Systems Group at the Department of Electrical Engineering, which is known for its contributions to wireless and optical communication systems. The group has about 50 members from all over the world. The working language at Chalmers is English.
Chalmers University of Technology is a Swedish university located in Gothenburg that focuses on research and education in technology, natural sciences, architecture, mathematics, maritime and other management areas. The university was founded in 1829 following a donation by William Chalmers, a director of the Swedish East India Company. He donated part of his fortune for the establishment of an “industrial school”. Chalmers was run as a private institution until 1937, when the institute became a state-owned university. In 1994, the school was incorporated as an aktiebolag under the control of the Swedish Government, the faculty and the Student Union. Chalmers is one of only three universities in Sweden which are named after a person, the other two being Karolinska Institutet and Linnaeus University.
