The research in the Error Correction Laboratory is in the general area of information theory, more specifically in channel coding. Our specialty is so called modern coding theory and includes low-density parity check codes and iterative decoding algorithms. We design and analyze classical and quantum codes and decoders for both communications and computing systems. Our error correction systems are used in variety of technologies such as flash memories and optical and wireless communications.
ECL Job Openings
The Error Correction Laboratory is looking for multiple PhD candidates to work on the projects funded by NASA, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, and National Science Foundation. Topics or research is a design and optimization of algorithms for iterative decoding for error correction codes using machine learning.
Strong background in digital communications, coding theory, probability theory and algebra is a must. Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering is required, but exceptional candidates with Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering who qualify for the University of Arizona direct Ph.D. program will be also considered.
