The ASU Center for Wireless Information Systems and Computational Architectures (WISCA.asu.edu) in conjunction with the Bliss Laboratory of Information, Signals, and Systems (BLISS.asu.edu) has an immediate opening for a researcher position with an emphasis in signal processing. The position may be filled as either a Postdoctoral Research Associate or Research Scientist, dependent upon the education, qualifications, and experience of the successful candidate.
The focus of the research will be both in the developing fundamental theory and in translating this theory to experimental implementations. The researcher will play a key role in a team that is part of a multi-institution project developing flexible and reconfigurable signal processing hardware systems. The researcher will survey the needs of the field to develop a set of performance requirements for a wide range of signal processing, communications and remote sensing tasks. The researcher is expected to collaborate with the larger project team to ensure that the reconfigurable system meets all requirements. The ideal candidate will have expertise in signal processing, algorithm development, and working with a team to translate algorithms on to hardware. In addition to this specific project, the researcher will be encouraged to develop their own original research and contribute to other projects in WISCA according to their interests and available opportunities.
The researcher will have many opportunities to present at leading conferences, submit to leading academic journals, mentor graduate students, write grants and provide technical leadership. In addition, the researcher will have an excellent opportunity to collaborate with other engineering researchers and scientists. The program supporting this grant-funded position is for a duration of four (4) years, but there is an opportunity based on performance and availability to extend the position into a research faculty role. ASU’s WISCA Center offers competitive salaries and an excellent work environment.
WISCA is an ASU center consisting of several research groups working on areas relating to signals, sensors, computation, and algorithms. Within this center, the BLISS Laboratory focuses on information theory, estimation theory, and signal processing with applications to communications, remote sensing, and anticipatory physiological analytics. All aspects of technical problems are considered, including theory, algorithms, phenomenology, implementation, and software/hardware system design. ASU is a top-ranked university, with a highly ranked and research-focused School of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering within the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, one of the nation’s largest collegiate engineering programs, with more than 21,000 students. ASU is ranked #1 in Innovation by U.S. News & World Report for three (3) years running (2016, 2017, 2018).
- A PhD, or terminal degree, in Electrical Engineering, Physics, or a closely related field.
- Demonstrated evidence of research capability.
- Experience in signal processing, FPGA/ASIC design, and/or wireless communications strongly preferred.
