Opening Ph.D. Positions

Opening Ph.D. Research Assistant Positions in Wireless Communications and Signal Processing

I am actively looking for up to 3 Ph.D. students for the Fall 2024 intake. The desirable candidates must have strong backgrounds in mathematics and communications engineering, strong interests and motivations in doing high impact research. Excellent command of English and good publication record, though not required, are plus points.

You will be co-advised by me and one professor at University of California, San Diego (UCSD) through the joint doctoral program between SDSU and UCSD, or by me and one professor at University of California, Irvine (UCI) through the joint doctoral CSRC program. You are required to meet minimum admission criteria, including GRE and TOEFL, at both SDSU and UCSD (or UCI). The potential research topics include, but not limited to, mmWave communications, resource allocation for large-scale networks, joint sensing/communication systems, and signal processing for big data.

Each position will be paid at $25,000 USD per year for 9 months with tuition fee waiver. You are encouraged to take internship during the 3-month summer. San Diego is a hub for communications engineering in the US. So, the chance to have internship here is very high. At SDSU, each Ph.D. student is considered as a full-time staff. You will have all privileges as a faculty/staff, including subsidized healthcare coverage to you and your family.

Note: San Diego, according to many, is the best city in the US in terms of weather and affordability (compared to the rest of California)
