Postdoctoral Researcher in Electrical & Computer Engineering
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Rice University has one immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Researcher to work at the intersection of machine learning, in-sensor computing for computer vision applications that exploit FlatCam technology. FlatCam is a new lensless imaging technology that can potentially turn flat, curved or flexible surfaces into cameras. Current prototypes of FlatCam consist of an off-the-shelf sensor and a back-end digital signal processing unit implemented in a PC to create imaging systems that are less than 0.2 grams in weight and 0.5 mm in thickness. To demonstrate FlatCam as a microchip, we are looking for highly motivated and qualified postdoctoral fellows with circuits background and successful tape-out experience. They must also have a strong background in digital integrated circuit (IC) design and common knowledge in machine learning algorithms and
sensing systems is a plus. The successful applicants will assume a lead role in developing and testing the first-of-its-kind FlatCam integrated microchip system, collaborating with exceptional Ph.D. students, faculty and collaborators from Rice. Click here for additional details and to apply.
Postdoctoral Research Associate in Electrical & Computer Engineering
As a member of the RENEW project team (http://renew.rice.edu) at Rice University, the Postdoctoral Research Associate will work on massive MIMO 5G wireless research and prototype/proof of concept development for world leading software-defined network. The focus will be on a developing a fully operational network stacks for Argos (http://argos.rice.edu) massive MIMO base stations being deployed, both at Rice (testing and development
deployment) and University of Utah campus (public deployment) The Postdoctoral Research Associate will work very closely with the Professors and the RENEW Engineers, to architect algorithms and systems targeting next generation wireless systems. Applicants must be able to take advanced wireless communications concepts from theory to implementation and publish the work on top-tier conferences and journals.

Postdoctoral Research Associate in Statistics
The Department of Statistics at Rice University seeks applications for the position of Postdoctoral Researcher. The successful candidate will join federally funded research projects to develop novel methods for improved understanding of the environment on the health and education of children. The research is part of the Children’s Environmental Health Initiative at Rice. Data science faculty leadership includes Ensor (Statistics), Baraniuk (Electrical and Computer Engineering), and Miranda (Statistics / Director, Children’s Environmental Health Initiative).
