Luleå University of Technology is experiencing strong growth with world leading expertise in several areas of research. Our research is conducted in close collaboration with industries such as Bosch, Ericsson, Scania, LKAB, SKF and leading international universities. Luleå University of Technology has a total turnover of SEK 1.7 billion per year, employing 1,650 employees and hosting 15,500 students. We shape the future through innovative education and groundbreaking research. Drawing on our location in the Arctic region, we create global societal benefit.

Current research in Signal Processing takes place in the areas of measurement technology and wireless communications, in close cooperation with industry. In our research we seek to understand how to infer information from measurement data and how to reliably convey such information from one place or time to another. To strengthen our research in the field of non-destructive testing and material characterization, we are now looking for a PhD student.

Subject description

The subject includes signal processing with emphasis on development and optimization of algorithms for processing single and multi-dimensional signals that are closely related to applications and applied research.

Project description


Additive manufacturing (AM, 3D printing) is a relatively new technology that enables the manufacture of complex and tailored products for an unlimited number of applications. One of the main challenges is the lack of non-destructive techniques for characterization of the AM components. The goal of this project is to develop methods based on ultrasound technology and modern machine learning algorithms for the determination of material characteristics, currently quantified by destructive mechanical testing. The project is a multi-disciplinary collaboration with the research group in Materials Science.



We are looking for an ambitious and creative colleague who wants to contribute to cutting edge research in signal processing oriented towards the above profile area(s). The position as PhD candidate provides ample opportunity for interaction with industry, participation in academic conferences and experience from scientific publishing.


A PhD student is primarily responsible for pursuing a doctoral education program with the goal to successfully defend a doctoral dissertation. The full-time position may include departmental service (usually teaching) with a volume of up to 20% of full-time work.



You are eligible according to the specifications in Section 39 of Chapter 7 of the Higher Education Ordinance, and you have an M.Sc. degree in Engineering Physics, Electrical Engineering, or related areas, with a specialization in signal processing, ultrasonic measurement technology, mathematics, or similar. Experience in material science is also desired. You have a strong interest and preferably experience in our above profile research area and communication and working in a group comes naturally.
