The successful candidate will have a background and familiarity with communications theory, radio frequency signals, probabilistic techniques and applications.  Knowledge of at least one programming language is required.

This effort is funded by a generous grant from DARPA. The original appointment period is for one year, but may be extended for a second year. Position can begin as early as April 1, 2018.

Applicants are asked to submit (a) cover letter; (b) a vitae; and (c) a research statement describing current and past research (two page maximum). The applicant should request at least three letters of recommendation, but no more than five.  Please submit your application to Ms. Kathy Peterson by email kathy.peterson@duke.edu.

Applications received by March 31, 2018 will be guaranteed full consideration; early application is advisable.
