Postdoc Job offer
ERC Consolidator Grant InnoSpaceThe iTEAM Research Institute offers 1 Postdoctoral position to a well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic scientist/engineer, with a Doctorate in Photonics and background on optical fiber communications. The successful candidate will be associated to the Photonics Research Labs, led by Prof. José Capmany. The contract is offered for 4 approximately years within the framework of the European ERC Consolidator Grant InnoSpace granted to Ivana Gasulla under the title “Revolutionizing fiber-wireless communications through space-division multiplexed photonics”. The idea of the project InnoSpace is to develop what we call “distributed signal processing”, where simultaneously to radiofrequency distribution, the same optical fiber will implement a variety of broadband functionalities that will be especially demanded in future 5G smart radiating systems. This approach requires working on a new portfolio of advanced optical fibers exploiting space-division multiplexing techniques, including both multicore fibers and few-mode fibers.
