2 positions - Research Assistant - salary grade E 13 TV-L Berliner Hochschulen

under the reserve that funds are granted - part-time employment may be possible

Working field:

The NetiT (Network Information Theory) research group, led by Prof. Stanczak, focuses on research and development of new technologies for future generations of wireless networks. We explore not only the theory, but also the implementation and evaluation of these technologies in practical
systems and environments. The research group works in close cooperation with the Wireless
Communications and Networks Department at the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute.

An important strategic goal of the research is the development of novel technologies, concepts and
architectures designs for wireless networks of the fifth (5G+) and sixth generation (6G), as well as
other wireless access technologies such as Wi-Fi. This includes methods for optimizations of the
protocol stack, disaggregated networks, development and concepts for AI/ML-driven wireless
networks such as online algorithms for robust wireless radio access.

To support us in this work, we are looking for two research associates to start as soon as possible.
The position is intended to be full-time.

research topics:
  • Disaggregation of wireless networks, .g., modularization of the wireless networking stack
  • Fundamental research on physical layer aspects of future generations of wireless systems, such as (i) smart MIMO algorithms, (ii) intelligence reflecting surfaces, (iii) joint communication and sensing.
  • MAC Layer functionalities and optimizations, .g., concepts for mobility management or energy efficiency
  • Algorithms and Concepts for Al/ML-based network optimizations, .e.g., placement of RAN functions, mobility management or interference optimizations
  • Networked Systems Design with the focus on Radio-Access Networks
  • Forwarding and Routing in Multi-Hop / Relay Networks
  • Supervision of B.Sc. and M.Sc students within the research project


  • Successfully completed university degree (Master, Diplom or equivalent) in the field of electrical engineering, communications engineering, information technology, computer science or in related fields of study.
  • A team player who can work with a high level of independence and has a proactive and solution oriented attitude.
  • Highly proficient in spoken and written English (at least C1 level).
  • Good working knowledge in German (at least B1 level).

Desirable Knowledge
  • Ability of conducting fundamental research.
  • Ability of establishing an international network of collaborators.
