The PhD candidate will conduct research on 5th generation (5G) wireless networks. In particular, the proposed PhD project will exploit promising technologies, such as "multi-tenant networks", "multi-tier user association", "programmable protocols", "Device-to-Device connectivity", "network virtualization", "resource and infrastructure sharing" and "edge-cloud capabilities" to provide new networking topologies in the context of the 5G paradigm. In particular, the specific objectives include:

- Investigation of architectures and mechanisms for efficient resource and spectrum sharing in dense 5G networks.
- Investigation of multi-tenancy solutions considering both communication and edge-cloud techniques to improve the network utilization and capacity and support a higher amount of tenants.
- Investigation of novel congestion control mechanisms to handle traffic peaks in the networks and provide efficient network utilization.
Junior researchers with an MSc degree in telecommunications, electrical engineering, computer science, or related fields, and capacity of carrying out innovative research, are highly encouraged to apply for this position.

The candidate must have strong analytical skills and experience in wireless networking, specifically in network protocols. Applicants should also have a solid background in some of the following fields: wireless networking, game theory, stochastic processes, stochastic geometry etc. Knowledge on simulation environments such as MATLAB and C/C++ is required.
