  • Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs) shall, at the time of recruitment by the host organisation, be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and not yet have been awarded a doctoral degree.
  • Mobility Rule: at the time of recruitment by the host organisation, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date. Compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays are not taken into account.
  • Each ESRs will be supported by the project for a maximum of 36 months.
  • All ESRs will take part in a secondment to another project partner for up to 30% of their appointment period.
  • Mobility Allowances and Familty Allowances (dependant on family circumstances) are payable to ESRs.

ESR7 - CNIT (IT) - Polarization Insensitive Millimeter-Wave Heterodyne Coherent Detection Schemes for RoF overlay over PON.

Design of subsystems for cost-effective direct up-conversion to millimeter wave of PON signals based on heterodyne coherent detection. Advance the state of the art of direct upconversion by implementation of low-complexity polarization insensitive approaches in the coherent receivers. Study the compatibility of the proposed up-conversion schemes within the technical specifications and the requirements of PON networks of future and currently installed standards
