Opening for Ph.D. Students

I am actively looking for 1-2 PhD students with full scholarship (~ 5000 RMB per month after deduction of tuition fee) to be admitted in the Computer and Information Engineering (CIE) program at CUHK-SZ. The program duration is typically 4-5 years, and is possible to start in Fall 2019 or Spring 2020. Candidates who are interested in one of the following areas are encouraged to apply:

  • Wireless communications

  • Data/Information driven communications

  • Localization in harsh environment

  • Machine learning and game theory applications

  • UAV communications

There are also a few positions for short-term visiting students and research assistants, both are supported with stipends. It would be a great internship opportunity to explore the research in our group. Please contact juntingc@cuhk.edu.cn, if interested.


  • Bachelor degree in science or engineering, preferably related to EE or CS

  • Strong interest in the above or broadly related areas

  • Highly self-motivated to pursuit scientific research

  • Strong mathematical skills

  • English skills: IELTS>=6.5, or TOEFL>=79, or Bachelor degree obtained from an English-taught institute

The Research Group

Dr. Chen’s research encompasses a broad range of applications in wireless communications, underwater acoustic communications, UAV-aided communication networks, localization, massive MIMO systems, and LTE, 5G and beyond. Our research endeavors to explore and solve the scientific problems in those applications through exploiting and even developing tools in signal processing, mathematical optimization, stochastic approximation, data analysis, and machine learning. The lab also works closely with Shenzhen Research Institute of Bid Data (SRIBD). Our recent research work and publication can be found at http:chenjunting.org.

As a PhD candidate, you will have the opportunity of developing your skills of critical thinking, mathematical modeling, problem solving, and communication, through the mentorship with Dr. Chen. You are also encouraged to enrich your research experience by visiting and collaborating with outside institutions including SRIBD as well as oversea research institutes up to your research direction and performance.
