Scholarship Description: Project is in collaboration with Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden. The project will develop and investigate theoretically, by simulations and experimentally new methods Acreo Swedish ICTfor constructing communications systems: -Ways of incorporating features like chromatic dispersion, fiber non-linearities, Raman amplification, and decide which implementations give the best phase noise tolerance. -Modulation techniques that are interesting are coherent n-level Phase Shift Keying (PSK) and Quadrature Amplitude Modulated (QAM) systems as well as OFDM systems.
The post doc study will develop new methods for constructing communications systems using optical transmission and linear and non-linear fiber properties. The study will be based on numerical simulations as well as on experimental verifications in the lab at high transmission speeds in the order of 100 GS/s. Project is run in collaboration with Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden.

Duration of award(s): The position is offered for two years.

How to Apply: Application should be send by e-mail to postdoc-at-acreo.se.  An application (in English) should include:
-Cover letter, one-page summary of your application.
-CV including relevant documents demonstrating achievements and experience and two personal references.
-An official copy of the MSc/PhD degree certificate and academic transcripts.
-Certification of research work during the last four years (in case of applicant not holding a PhD).
-Optional: Copy of MSc/PhD thesis report (in PDF format), List of publications (if applicable) and Reference letter(s).

Scholarship Application Deadline: Application deadline is March 31, 2013.
