Are you fascinated by the massive data center infrastructure required to make artificial intelligence (AI) happen? Join us on this research project in collaboration with Marvell Technology Inc. (Santa Clara, CA, USA) to develop the next generation of low-latency and high-throughput optical interconnects driven by AI applications.
In today's rapidly evolving technological landscape, artificial intelligence (AI) stands as a cornerstone of innovation, transforming industries, and shaping the way we interact with the digital world. As AI continues to advance, the demand for lightning-fast and ultra-low-latency data processing and communication within datacenters has never been more critical. The Eindhoven University of Technology recognizes the pivotal role of AI and the urgency for ultra-high-speed fiber optical communications to support AI applications. To address this challenge, we are excited to announce 2 Ph.D. positions in the field of Modulation and Coding for Ultra-High-Speed Fiber Optical Communications.
These two positions are part of a collaborative research project with Marvell Technology Inc., a leading technology company, and two research groups at TU/e: the Signal Processing Systems (SPS) and the Electronic Systems (ES) group. The research in this project will be performed in close cooperation between Marvell and these two research groups. Successful candidates will work on cutting-edge research to develop novel advanced modulation and coding techniques for ultra-high-speed fiber optical communication systems with a focus on short links (below 200 meters) driven by AI applications. This project offers a unique opportunity to work closely with Marvell, a global leader in semiconductor solutions for data infrastructure. Collaborating with Marvell engineers and researchers, you will have access to state-of-the-art technology and resources, as well as the chance to contribute to real-world industry applications and to perform research internships abroad.
A meaningful job in a dynamic and ambitious university, in an interdisciplinary setting and within an international network. You will work on a beautiful, green campus within walking distance of the central train station. In addition, we offer you:
Eindhoven University of Technology is an internationally top-ranking university in the Netherlands that combines scientific curiosity with a hands-on attitude. Our spirit of collaboration translates into an open culture and a top-five position in collaborating with advanced industries. Fundamental knowledge enables us to design solutions for the highly complex problems of today and tomorrow.

The Information and Communication Theory Lab (ICT Lab) at TU/e is a globally recognized research group focusing on information and communication theory, and its applications. At the ICT Lab, we study information processing in a broad sense. We focus on finding fundamental limits but also on the data processing techniques (often codes and digital signal processing algorithms) and architectures that aim at approaching these limits. Main areas of interest are source coding, channel coding, multi-user information theory, security, and machine learning. We typically use information-theoretical frameworks to model the scenarios under investigation. This allows us to find out what the optimal trade-offs are. The scenarios that we study often result from close interaction with industry.
