Job description

SuperGPS-2 project

This research project aims to develop a robust and efficient terrestrial system for accurate positioning and time-transfer, using virtual ultra-wideband radio signals, which can serve as a backup and complement to GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) in environments with reduced GNSS availability. The virtual ultra-wideband approach allows for a limited demand for expensive radio frequency spectrum by using multiband signals and, through flexible signal design, straightforward implementation and integration with current and new generation telecommunications standards, such as 5G, are expected. In this project, we address multiband radio channel modelling, signal design for multiband ranging, estimation of the channel impulse response from a multiband signal, and multiband carrier-phase based ranging and positioning. Furthermore, a proof-of-principle hardware prototype test-bed will be developed for carrying out measurements and demonstrating the concept.

The SuperGPS-2 project has started in Fall 2023 and the research team currently consists of two PhD-students supervised by two academic staff members at TU Delft. This project is actively supported by several partners from industry.

Job description

The SuperGPS-2 project is carried out jointly by the TU Delft Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Sciences (EEMCS) and the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences (CEG). The PostDoc should complement the current project-team, and will be appointed, for a 2.5 years term, at the former faculty. Next to research on radio signal processing and positioning, he/she will be leading the development of the proof-of-principle virtual ultra-wideband prototype test-bed for positioning and time-transfer, with the aim of a live-demonstration by the end of the project. Specifically, the PostDoc will supervise and contribute to the PhD students’ work on the prototype test-bed, and coordinate the actual demonstration.

TU Delft offers an excellent and stimulating research environment with extensive available infrastructure and expertise.

Requirements

Candidates are expected to have a PhD-degree in electrical engineering: telecommunications, signal processing or micro-electronics, excellent command of English (certified through a TOEFL or IELTS test), proven team-work competences, as well as good laboratory and programming competences (working with measurement equipment, electronics, and hardware). In addition, hardware programming skills (FPGA design, VHDL code development) are required and need to be proven.

Conditions of employment

Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities. The TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, discounts on health insurance, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged.

For international applicants, TU Delft has the Coming to Delft Service. This service provides information for new international employees to help you prepare the relocation and to settle in the Netherlands. The Coming to Delft Service offers a Dual Career Programme for partners and they organise events to expand your (social) network.

TU Delft (Delft University of Technology)

Delft University of Technology is built on strong foundations. As creators of the world-famous Dutch waterworks and pioneers in biotech, TU Delft is a top international university combining science, engineering and design. It delivers world class results in education, research and innovation to address challenges in the areas of energy, climate, mobility, health and digital society. For generations, our engineers have proven to be entrepreneurial problem-solvers, both in business and in a social context.

At TU Delft we embrace diversity as one of our core values and we actively engage to be a university where you feel at home and can flourish. We value different perspectives and qualities. We believe this makes our work more innovative, the TU Delft community more vibrant and the world more just. Together, we imagine, invent and create solutions using technology to have a positive impact on a global scale. That is why we invite you to apply. Your application will receive fair consideration.

Challenge. Change. Impact!

Faculty Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) brings together three scientific disciplines. Combined, they reinforce each other and are the driving force behind the technology we all use in our daily lives. Technology such as the electricity grid, which our faculty is helping to make completely sustainable and future-proof. At the same time, we are developing the chips and sensors of the future, whilst also setting the foundations for the software technologies to run on this new generation of equipment – which of course includes AI. Meanwhile we are pushing the limits of applied mathematics, for example mapping out disease processes using single cell data, and using mathematics to simulate gigantic ash plumes after a volcanic eruption. In other words: there is plenty of room at the faculty for ground-breaking research. We educate innovative engineers and have excellent labs and facilities that underline our strong international position. In total, more than 1000 employees and 4,000 students work and study in this innovative environment.
