MSc and PhD opportunities

The Information and Communication Lab is always looking for strong and motivated MSc and PhD students. Full career track opportunities are available. We post new positions throughout the year in the general areas of Information and Communication Theory (ICT). Check our projects and publications for our current scope of research.

For current opportunities within the ICT Lab, please see opportunities below or contact Alex Alvarado directly. In your email, please include your CV and a short motivation letter.

Master students of TU/e can also find an overview of project opportunities within the ICT Lab in the Master Project Marketplace.

Visiting Students

We have a limited number of places for visiting PhD students (normally for at least 6 months). We cannot offer financial support, but we provide access to all university facilities, office space, computing resources, etc. If interested, please get in touch via email, and include the password “ICTlabVacancies” in your email heading (see above).

We encourage postdoctoral candidates to apply to the next call of the EurotechPostdoc2 programme (current call opening on the 30th of November 2020). The Eurotech programme awards prestigious Marie-Curie fellowships which fully fund independent research for 24 months.

The programme enables research mobility and collaboration with other research groups within the Eurotech Universities alliance which comprises: Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), Technical University of Denmark (DTU), École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Technical University of Munich (TUM), École Polytechnique (L’X), and Technion Israel Institute of Technology.

The ICT Lab will gladly host or co-host strong Eurotech candidates, and it will support applicants in the preparation of their research proposals.
