PhD Scholarship: Mathematics of Future Wireless Networks, Hamilton Institute/Bell Labs Ireland

PhD Scholarship: Mathematics of Future Wireless Networks

Basic Description

Applications are invited for a PhD research position at the Hamilton Institute. The position is sponsored by Bell Labs Ireland, the R&D arm of the Alcatel-Lucent and a major industry research lab based in Dublin. The Hamilton Institute is one of the largest and most active applied mathematics research groups in Ireland and an international centre of excellence.

Wireless networks are not only ubiquitous and of great economic importance to modern society, but also the source of many of the fundamental scientific challenges faced by modern communication networks. A key feature of modern networks is their scale and complexity and at the Hamilton Institute and Bell Labs Ireland we are developing new models to gain insight and understanding of the issues and novel solutions to tackle these challenges.

The successful applicant will be spending time at the Hamilton Institute and the Bell Labs facilities and gain a unique education from leading researchers from both academia and industry, positioning them well for their career development. The Hamilton institute has a very active international visitor programme and provides the opportunity for international and industry exchange visits. Our Network Maths initiative is part of our structured PhD programme where leading international researchers provide specialist postgraduate modules to support our research students.
