Skilled and committed employees are a crucial factor in the success of Linköping University. And we need more of them. Our core expertise comes from teachers and researchers, but a successful university requires experienced and motivated employees in many fields. Everyone is important. We need to recruit many new employees thanks to, among all, an expansion in our research activity. We need you here. We look forward to receiving your application! The department of Electrical Engineering (ISY) is central to the engineering education at the Institute of Technology, one of four faculties at Linköping University, and this regards both basic and applied knowledge. The research is based on industrial needs, and ranges from basic research to direct application in collaboration projects. Read more at

We are now looking to appoint a postdoc in the field of Computer Engineering.

Work assignments In the Division of Computer Engineering we perform research about efficient processing architectures for, among others, coherent optical communication. With the very high data rates in fiber optical communication systems, the available oversampling is a limiting factor. One primary objective of this post-doc position is to work on efficient solutions for fractional oversampling receivers for coherent optical communication. Traditionally, the adaptive equalizers operates at an integer multiple of the symbol rate. We envision that this can be done at a fractional multiple instead, avoiding both the higher sample rates and sample rate conversions involved with the integer multiple scheme. However, this require new algorithms, which also must be efficiently implementable.

The position is funded by the ELLIIT strategic research environment,, and it is expected that the successful candidate attends the annual workshops and presents the outcomes. There are collaborations with the Division of Communication Systems at the Department and with Chalmers University of Technology within the project.

As postdoc, you will principally carry out research. A certain amount of teaching may be part of your duties, up to a maximum of 20% of working hours.

The workplace You will be employed in the Division for Computer Engineering that performs teaching and research on processor architectures and logic design. Please read more at

Qualifications To be qualified to take employment as postdoc, you must have been awarded a doctoral degree or have a foreign degree that is deemed to be equivalent to a doctoral degree. This degree must have been awarded at the latest by the point at which LiU makes its decision to employ you.

It is considered advantageous if your doctoral degree is no older than three years at application deadline for this job. If there are special reasons for having an older doctoral degree – such as taking statutory leave – then these may be taken into consideration.

The applicant should have a strong background in digital signal processing, ideally for optical communication. In addition, the applicant should have experience with hardware implementation of digital signal processing algorithms using HDL (VHDL and/or Verilog) and logic synthesis (FPGA and/or ASIC). Scholarly proficiency must have been demonstrated through original research resulting in publications in internationally recognized journals and conferences. The applicant should be able to work effectively both individually and together with other researchers.

Very good communication skills and very good knowledge of English, both verbal and written, are expected.

About this job This post is a temporary contract of two years with the possibility of extension up to a total maximum of three years. The position as a postdoc is full-time.

Starting dateBy agreement.

Salary Salaries at the university are set individually. More information about employee benefits is available here.
