Work­ing field:

The CCAN chair at the Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin deals with dis­trib­uted con­trol in next gen­er­a­tion wire­less net­works. The future of wire­less com­mu­nic­a­tions is envi­sioned with ultra-dense net­works where a vari­ety of emer­ging tech­no­lo­gies such as machine-type/device-to-device com­mu­nic­a­tions and small cells coex­ist. Due to the dens­ity, dynam­icity and lack of inform­a­tion, the optimal con­trol of such net­works is very chal­len­ging. The prob­lem becomes aggrav­ated when the con­trol and optim­iz­a­tion has to be done in a dis­trib­uted man­ner. The main work­ing theme of this pos­i­tion is to address such chal­lenges using the­or­et­ical meth­ods from game the­ory, machine learn­ing, and dynamic pro­gram­ming. PhD thesis pre­par­a­tion is pos­sible and will be super­vised by Prof. Dr. Setareh Magh­sudi.


Suc­cess­fully com­pleted uni­versity degree (Mas­ter, Dip­lom or equi­val­ent) in at least one of the fol­low­ing fields:
  • elec­trical engin­eer­ing (with strong back­ground in wire­less com­mu­nic­a­tions),
  • or math­em­at­ics (with strong back­ground in oper­a­tions research),
  • or com­puter sci­ence (with strong back­ground in machine learn­ing),
  • or eco­nom­ics (with strong back­ground in game the­ory).

Applic­ants must have strong back­ground in math­em­at­ical ana­lysis, and must be motiv­ated towards the­or­et­ical prob­lems with a strong math­em­at­ical fla­vor. Good pro­gram­ming skills (at least MAT­LAB or C++) and Eng­lish pro­fi­ciency are also required.

How to ap­ply:

Please send your applic­a­tion with the ref­er­ence num­ber and the lis­ted doc­u­ments
  • a cur­riculum vitae, stat­ing clearly and pre­cisely their edu­ca­tion his­tory, earned degrees and pre­vi­ous aca­demic insti­tu­tions,
  • let­ters of recom­mend­a­tion from aca­demic advisors, MSc thesis super­visors, aca­demic instruct­ors (up to 3 let­ters), together with con­tact inform­a­tion,
  • if applic­able, pub­lished research work, includ­ing MSc thesis, in elec­tronic form
  • a let­ter of motiv­a­tion and pur­pose, illus­trat­ing how the can­did­ate's know­ledge and back­ground fits in the afore­men­tioned research area;
  • offi­cial grade tran­scripts with cer­ti­fied trans­la­tion in Eng­lish or Ger­man if the ori­ginal doc­u­ments are in a dif­fer­ent lan­guage
prefer­ably by e-mail to or in writ­ing to Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin - Der Präsid­ent - Fak­ultät IV, Insti­tut für Telekom­munika­tionssysteme, FG Con­trol of Con­ver­gent Access Net­works (CCAN), Frau Prof. Dr.-Ing. Magh­sudi, Sekr. TEL 12-11, Ernst-Reu­ter-Platz 7, 10587 Ber­lin.

To ensure equal oppor­tun­it­ies between women and men, applic­a­tions by women with the required qual­i­fic­a­tions are expli­citly desired. Qual­i­fied indi­vidu­als with dis­ab­il­it­ies will be favored.

Please send cop­ies only. Ori­ginal doc­u­ments will not be returned.
