CoreLab, which is directed by Dr. Ertugrul Basar under the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Koç University, is conducting highly-active theoretical as well as experimental research towards the physical layer design of next-generation wireless communication systems and has collaboration ties with many international and national institutions.
– [For Turkish and resident citizens only] We have a single PhD position (48 months) on next-generation Wi-Fi standards from our TUBITAK 2244 Industry PhD project. Benefits include 4500 TL/month stipend, graduate housing, meal card, health insurance. After graduation, the PhD holder will be directly employed by Vestel R&D for 3 years. Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 can be considered.
– We may support the application of qualified post-doctoral researchers to the TUBITAK-H2020 2236 Co-Funded Brain Circulation Scheme2. If you are interested in this competitive but very generous funding scheme, please send an email to us with your CV and research statement/proposal.
