Aalto University is where science and art meet technology and business. We shape a sustainable future by making research breakthroughs in and across our disciplines, sparking the game changers of tomorrow and creating novel solutions to major global challenges. Our community is made up of 13 000 students, 400 professors and close to 4 500 other faculty and staff working on our dynamic campus in Espoo, Greater Helsinki, Finland. Diversity is part of who we are, and we actively work to ensure our community’s diversity and inclusiveness. This is why we warmly encourage qualified candidates from all backgrounds to join our community.

The Department of lnformation and Communications Engineering is offering a summer job in the research group:

Tactical applications of 6G subnetworks (position 1)
 Subnetworks are being developed in the context of wireless 6G networks. The subnetworks use resources of the umbrella 6G network, but coordinate with it only lightly. This enables an almost autonomous operation of the subnetworks. A typical application scenario would be internal communication in a vehicle. In this work, the objective is to chart national defense applications of subnetworks, in particular their covertness and jamming tolerance. The applicants are expected to understand the fundamentals of cellular and wireless communication as well as good matlab-skills.

Hardware aware quantum error correction coding (position 2)
Reliable universal quantum computing requires fault tolerant implementations based on quantum error correction coding (QECC). Typical errors are different for different types of hardware. In this work, the objective is to optimize error correction coding to a quantum computer based on superconducting qubits, as well as to investigate the interaction of QECC with so-called flag gadgets. The work is theoretical and computations, and is based on mathematical modeling of the hardware.  The applicants are expect to understand the fundamentals of coding theory, and have good skills in linear algebra.
