ITN-5VC aims to investigate how multi-band multi-antenna communications, including mmWave, could be integrated together with radar heads and other wireless sensors into the same telematics unit, so that transmission chains and radiation systems were reused using the same spectrum in an opportunistic manner. This idea has important implications in the design of the vehicle and its communications that will also be addressed in the project. With this premise, the project aims to investigate the future C-V2X systems based on 5G NR and how to integrate them with autonomous driving sensor systems.

We are looking for an excellent, open-minded and team-spirited PhD candidate with a MSc degree in Computer Science, Telecommunication Engineering, Informatics Engineering or physics. Fluent communication skills in English, both spoken and written, and a solid background and knowledge are required.

Candidates will be required to meet the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Early-Stage Researcher eligibility criteria (http://ec.europa.eu/research/mariecurieactions/).

In particular, at the time of appointment candidates must have had less than four years full-time equivalent research experience and must not have already obtained a PhD. Additionally, they must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the recruiting beneficiary for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the recruitment date.

For instance, when applying for a position at Fivecomm in Spain with a starting date of May 1st, 2021, the applicant must not have lived in Spain for more than one year since May 1st, 2018. Short stays, such as holidays, are not taken into account.
