PhD Student in Electrical Engineering (Implementation of Baseband Processing for Massive MIMO) Lund University of Technology, Electrical and Information Technology Sweden

PhD student in electrical engineering (implementation of baseband processing for Massive MIMO)


Lund University of Technology, Electrical and Information Technology


Lund University was founded in 1666 and is ranked recurrently as one of the world's 100 leading universities. There are 42,000 students and 7,400 employees in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our quest to understand, explain and improve our world and human condition.


Lund University of Technology, LTH, is a technical faculty at Lund University with research of a high international class and major efforts in pedagogical diversity.


Subject description 

research topic for this doctoral student is about Massive Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) Systems, a type of wireless communication technology that has attracted much attention in recent years, with a massive number of antennas and transmitter / receiver chains leading to huge profits in both spectral and energy efficiency. More specifically, the subject is the implementation of baseband processing for Massive MIMO, which includes method development for baseband algorithms, computational architectures and corresponding integrated electronic circuits. 


The research is conducted in the field of digital integrated circuits for Massiv MIMO. More specifically, focus is on computational architecture for baseband processing taking into account the design and implementation challenges that exist in data processing, data storage and data transfer within the system. The research consists of activities at both the system / algorithm level and the hardware / circuit level. 

The main task of a doctoral student is to undertake his research education, which includes participation in research projects as well as postgraduate courses. The duties include participation in teaching and other institutional work, but max 20% of working hours.



Basic eligibility for postgraduate education has the following:

  • graduated at advanced level or

  • Completed course requirements of at least 240 higher education credits, of which at least 60 higher education credits at advanced level, with content relevant to postgraduate education or

  • in some other way acquired within or outside the country acquired essentially equivalent knowledge.


The requirements for special eligibility for the postgraduate subject electronics meet the requirements of:

  • At least 60 higher education credits at the advanced level relevant to the subject area, or

  • Master of Science in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Information and Communication Technology, Medicine and Engineering, Technical Physics, Technical Mathematics or Technical Nanoscience.


Other requirements:

  • Very good knowledge of English, in spoken and written terms.

  • Have extensive experience in designing and implementing digital integrated circuits.

  • Good understanding of computer architecture and reconfigurable calculations.

  • Good knowledge of wireless communication and particularly massive MIMO systems.


Assessment criteria

Selection of postgraduate education takes place according to the ability to apply for postgraduate studies. The assessment of the ability is primarily based on the study results at the first level and the advanced level. The following are taken into account:

  • Knowledge and skills relevant to dissertation and subject matter.

  • Assessed ability for independent work and ability to formulate and attack scientific problems.

  • Ability for written and oral communication.

  • Other experience relevant to the education at the research level, eg professional experience.


Other qualifications:

  • Courses, Degree Projects and Experience in Design of Integrated Circuits.

  • Experience of design and implementation of digital baseband processing for wireless systems.

  • Experience of CAD systems for digital integrated circuits.

  • Experience in designing subsystems for processing, memory management or interconnection networks.


Consideration will also be given to good co-operative ability, drive and independence, and how the applicant, through his experience and competence , is expected to have the ability needed to complete postgraduate education. 


Only the person who is admitted to postgraduate education may be employed as a doctoral student. Postgraduate studies are four years in full-time studies. In the course of teaching and other institutional work, the employment is extended to a minimum, but not more than 5 years (ie max 20%). Provisions for employment as a PhD student are in the Higher Education Ordinance (1998: 80). 

Instructions for application 

application shall written in English. The application must contain a personal letter stating why you are interested in the employment and how the research project matches your interests and your educational background. The application must also contain a CV, diploma or equivalent, and other items that you wish to claim (copies of grades, references to references, recommendation letters, etc.).


Lund University welcomes applicants with different backgrounds and experiences. We see equality and diversity as a strength and asset. 

Welcome with your application! 

We discard all contacts from advertisers, recruitment and agency companies due to government procurement rules.
