    PhD Scholarship

    System identification: from blind to informed paradigm
    Vietnam National University, Hanoi and University of Technology Sydney

    Applications are invited to apply for a 3-year scholarship to undertake a joint PhD program in Communication Engineering at both the University of Engineering and Technology (VNU-UET) of Vietnam National University, Hanoi (VNU) and the University of Technology Sydney (UTS). The prospective research study is part of a project on “System identification: from blind to informed paradigm” funded by the National Foundation for Science and Technology Development (NAFOSTED), Vietnam.

    Scholarship: The student will be given a stipend of AUD 800/month while in Hanoi and of AUD 28,000/year while in Sydney. The student will also be provided with a round-trip ticket between Hanoi and Sydney.

    Awarded degrees: The PhD student will be awarded a PhD degree in Communication Engineering or Electronic Engineering from VNU (a prestigious university in Vietnam) and a PhD degree in Computer Science from the UTS (ranks 48th in Computer Science worldwide).

    Eligibility: English proficiency of IELTS 6.0 or equivalent and meet the PhD admission criteria.

    How to apply: Send CV, copy of diplomas and academic transcripts, copy of English certificate, 2 letters of recommendation, and a letter of motivation to: avitech@vnu.edu.vn.

    Research topics: The PhD student will work on the following topics:

    1) Performance analysis for system identification

    • Objective: Investigate the current limitations and establish relevant performance bounds based on information theory of the wireless communication systems of interest.

    2) Advanced system identification methods and algorithms

    • Objective: Develop informed system identification methods and algorithms based on the obtained performance bounds. Several methods such as advanced semi-blind, side-information assisted, and learning assisted system identification will be investigated.

    3) Proof of concept for massive MIMO systems

    • Objective: Illustrate and validate the proposed methods and algorithms for massive MIMO systems, including development of a MATLAB toolbox for informed system identification.

    Requirements: Good background in mathematics; Strong background in signal processing and wireless communications; Good programming skills and teamwork; Hardworking; Passion for research.

    Background on machine learning is a plus.

    Working environment: The PhD student will work in the Advanced Institute of Engineering and Technology (AVITECH) and the UTS-VNU Joint Technology and Innovation Research Centre (JTIRC) at VNU-UET in Hanoi, and in the School of Electrical and Data Engineering at UTS in Sydney.

    More and more genetic and genomic testing are developed and approved to be used in clinic after human genome project finished in 2001. With the emerging of NGS in 2005, the genetic and genomic testing is further advanced and plays an important role in clinical diagnosis and prognosis. Were born later, epigenetic and epigenomic testing […]
