SECRET is a collaborative European Training Network (ETN) targeting “Mobile Small Cells on Demand” harnessing on current 5G paradigms towards Enhanced Broadband Connectivity and Gigabit Wireless. Funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions, SECRET is committed to create an excellent educational training platform for Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) in the field of wireless communications and networking.
8 research groups, spread across 4 leading universities/research institutions and 4 industrial partners in 5 different European countries have come together to train a new generation of researchers through an EU-wide PhD training network. The training program goes beyond the traditional institutional research training program by harnessing the skills and experiences of the network to deliver broader researcher training, transferable skills and intersectorial work experience.
The network will offer ESRs a once in a life-time experience to develop their own research personality and prepare them to create their legacy as we enter the 5G digital world.
WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR
We look for outstanding, self-motivated PhD students to participate in a large-scale European Training Network (ETN) on 5G Communications, including research training on Front-end RF electronics, Wireless Security, Radio Protocol Design, Practical Experimentation, and Network Virtualization.
The selected candidates will have the opportunity to pursue a PhD degree during their work within the project and have exposure to diverse research cultures conducted through scientific missions between the partners of the networks.
Good English skills are essential, as English will be the working language of the consortium.
Experience in the area of expertise of the selected position is considered an advantage.
