Ledig stilling ved SINTEF

Researcher – Navigation systems

Deadline: 31.05.2020


SINTEF is one of Europe's largest research organisations, with multidisciplinary expertise in the fields of technology, the natural sciences and the social sciences. SINTEF is an independent foundation and has conducted contract research and development projects for the private and public sectors since 1950. SINTEF has 2000 employees from 75 countries and annual revenues of three billion Norwegian kroner.

Vision: Technology for a better society

The Department of Connectivity technologies and platforms at SINTEF Digital undertakes theoretical, computational, experimental and applied research within the scientific fields of wireless communications, signal processing, navigation and acoustics. Our goal is to conduct research in order to push technological boundaries, disseminate results and explore new applications in close cooperation with industry. We are divided into two research groups entitled Communication Systems and Acoustics.

The research group Communication Systems consists of 15 researchers working within signal design, signal processing, machine learning, signal propagation, electromagnetics, antennas, communication networks, navigation, positioning and localization. We conduct research and apply our knowledge within a diverse set of applications, such as intelligent transport systems, wireless sensor networks, internet-of-things for various industrial applications, safe communication for autonomous systems, electromagnetic sensors for non-destructive testing, satellite communications, powerline communications, underwater (acoustic) communications and navigation system design for safety-critical operations.The department is now looking for a navigation systems researcher to join our team working on resilient high integrity navigation system technologies.


As a research scientist, you will be working in interdisciplinary teams on several projects with partners in Norway and/or abroad. Depending on your qualifications and level of experience, you will be expected to contribute to project development, work with industry customers and other partners as well as managing projects.

Qualifications and Skills
