Fachbereich Mathematik und Informatik, Institut für Informatik (Reference code: CS-1). The Heisenberg Communications and Information Theory Group at the Freie Universität Berlin, Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, is seeking an outstanding PhD student in the field of Compressed Sensing (CS) and 5G Wireless Network Security.

Security is widely expected to play a predominant role in future wireless communication systems particular in the Internet of Things and Services.

Responsibilities and tasks: In the dissertation the student will develop and analyze new security schemes for 5G wireless systems for which CS techniques will become instrumental. Within the research the student is expected to expand the information theory of security and establish a close link to mathematical foundations of CS. The student’s dissertation will be supervised by PD Dr. Gerhard Wunder, Heisenberg Fellow.

The position is part of the new priority program “Compressed Sensing in Information Processing” and the research will be carried out in close collaboration with the research group Quantum Information Theory of Prof. Eisert. There will be also close links to the Communications and Information Theory Chair of Prof. Caire and the Applied Functional Analysis Chair, Institute of Mathematics, of Prof. Kutyniok at the Technische Universität Berlin.
