Postdoc position in radio tomography at the University of Utah

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Sensing and Processing Across Networks (SPAN) Lab at the University of Utah invites applications for an open postdoctoral fellow position for research in radio tomography

, a research area at the intersection of statistical signal processing, radio wave propagation, and wireless networking. The SPAN lab, led by Prof. Neal Patwari, has significant expertise in radio channel signal processing for location estimation in wireless networks, including the 2008 ACM MobiCom Best Student Research Demo Award, a 2009 IEEE Signal Processing Magazine Best Paper Award, and significant popular press, including articles in MIT Technology Review, ScienceNOW, Wired, Discover, Der Speigel, and The Economist. This postdoctoral position would expand the state-of-the-art in the capability of wireless networks to perform localization, for both emergency situations, and for everyday logistics applications.

The postdoctoral fellow position would start as early as September, 2010, and would last from one to three years, based on research performance. The pay rate is 45,200 USD per year, and includes full benefits. The candidate must have a strong publication record including a history of presenting / publishing in the top conferences and journals. We are looking for a candidate with:

  1. a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering or Computer Science,
  2. both theoretical and experimental skills (including building and deploying sensor networks),
  3. a strong background in statistical signal processing, radio wave propagation, and wireless networking.

To Apply:

Application materials include (1) CV, (2) Link to homepage where most significant publications are available, and (3) contact information for three references. Send materials via email to Prof. Neal Patwari, npatwari at ece dot utah dot edu, with the subject, Postdoc Application.
