Descripció del lloc

The UWICORE laboratory at the Universidad Miguel Hernández de Elche (UMH) in Spain offers a post-doc & PhD candidate position for research on 6G subnetworks, with a focus on its application to vehicular subnetworks. The research will be conducted within the Horizon Europe 6G-SHINE project (6G SHort range extreme communication IN Entities, one of the EU Flagship projects to design future 6G networks). The 6G-SHINE project will pioneer the main technology components for wireless in-X subnetworks, short range low power radio cells to be installed in entities like vehicles, robots or production modules, for a wide set of applications, including those with extreme requirements in terms of latency, reliability, or data rates. Such technology components will leverage the opportunities offered by short range communications and connectivity with a broader 6G network within the vision of 6G as a network of networks. Within the project, UMH will focus on MAC and resource management solutions for 6G subnetworks with a core application to the deployment of 6G subnetworks within future software-defined connected and automated vehicles (CAV). The candidate will contribute to the following activities: 1) creating realistic datasets of traffic within in-vehicle networks using 3D-based CAV simulators under development at UMH, 2) contributing to the definition of the architectures and interfaces for the seamless and flexible integration of 6G subnetworks into the 6G network of networks, 3) designing data-driven and AI/ML-powered predictive scheduling and preallocation mechanisms to support mixed traffic flows (including deterministic time-sensitive services) in 6G (vehicular) subnetworks, 4) designing new resource management techniques for managing traffic and radio resources among subnetworks belonging to the same entity (e.g. the same vehicle) and their interactions with the outer/wider-area 6G network. Most of the research will be SW-based, but some activities may include on experimental testbeds.

Location/Who we are/About the Uwicore lab
The UWICORE (Ubiquitous Wireless Communications Research) laboratory is part of the Communications Engineering Department of the Universidad Miguel Hernández de Elche (Spain). The laboratory has strong expertise and research record on the design of wireless technologies to verticals, in particular in the areas of connected and automated vehicles as well as Industry 4.0 (or digital transformation of industries). The lab actively participates in European research programs and closely works with national and international companies and research institutions. The laboratory also actively participates in standardization groups (e.g., ETSI) to transfer its research output. The candidates will join a very dynamic research lab with international collaborations and possibilities to develop their research profile and promote their career.

Application
Interested candidates should send their application by email. Candidates should send their Curriculum Vitae and their Academic Certificate and transcript of records to Prof. Javier Gozalvez (j.gozalvez@umh.es), Dr. Miguel Sepulcre (msepulcre@umh.es) and Dr. Baldomero Coll-Perales (bcoll@umh.es). The subject of the email should be “Position in 6G for Vehicular Subnetworks - Candidate name”. Applications will be continuously evaluated upon reception, and online interviews will be organized with the selected candidates until the positions are filled.
