The Barkhausen Institute performs research on the latest hardware, software and communication technologies and demonstrates their application in tomorrow's society. Our goal is to build a flexible and trustworthy IoT platform based on reliable electronics and secure communication methods.


The wireless connectivity group aims to contribute towards a dependable Internet-of-Things for the next generation of wireless communication systems. We focus on mathematical analysis, simulation studies and demonstrations of multi-connectivity, physical layer security and joint communication and sensing.


To help pursue our research agenda, we are looking for a


Student Assistant – Wireless Simulations (m/f/d)

(up to 19 hours/week for 3-6 months) 


The project

The SHK will investigate state of the art simulation and digital signal processing techniques for the physical layer of joint communication and sensing wireless systems. They will configure and extend Barkhausen Institute’s software suite HermesPy to reproduce and verify published signal processing research.


Your tasks

  • Contribute source code and extend documentation of a Python codebase
  • Reproduce cutting edge wireless signal processing research results
  • Supervise software defined radio measurement setups


We expect the following

  • Study of electrical engineering, computer science or comparable
  • Good communication and writing skills in English
  • Knowledge of high-level object-oriented programming, preferably Python
  • Basic knowledge of digital signal processing techniques


What we provide

  • An open and creative team of enthusiastic scientists
  • Close to campus
  • Agile working hours and workflows
  • Work on future technologies
  • The option to derive a supervised thesis topic from your work


If you have passion for new technologies and the desire to develop the connected world of tomorrow with us, we are looking for you.
