Location: INDRA, Madrid , Spain

Framework: Innovative Training Networks (ITN) project "VisIoN - European Training Network on Visible light based Interoperability and Networking".

Funding: EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation – HORIZON 2020 Marie Skłodowska Curie Action

Eligible candidates are invited to submit applications for one (1) position (through the award of a work contract), for 36 months. This position is under very attractive employment conditions and competitive salaries offered in Marie-Curie Innovative Training Networks.

Global project description:

Visible light communication (VLC) is one of the most promising current areas of research with a significant potential for high-impact results, and successful outcomes might revolutionize utilization of LEDs for modern infrastructures to add novel functionalities in addition to illumination. VLC has been proposed for smart homes and streets, manufacturing and medical environments for increased data security and reduced interference, or a two-way vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-roadside infrastructure communications as part of the emerging intelligent transportation systems for increasing road safety. The VisIoN project aims to train a new generation of early-stage researchers in this emerging area and to make significant contributions to the fundamental scientific understanding and technical knowhow. Targeted application areas include indoor and outdoor VLC access, smart transportation, and medical and manufacturing environments.
