Johannes Huber received the Dipl.-Ing. degree in electrical engineering from the Technical University of Munich, Germany, in 1977. From 1977 to 1982 he was a research assistant at the Federal Armed Forces University Munich from which he received the Dr.-Ing. degree with a thesis on coding for channels with memory. From 1982 to 1990, he was an Akademischer Oberrat at the same university and received the Dr.-Ing. habil. degree with a thesis on trellis coded modulation. In spring 1991, he joined the IBM Research Laboratory, Zurich, Switzerland. From autumn 1991 until Spring 2017, he was Professor at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany.

His research interests are information and coding theory, modulation schemes, algorithms for signal detection and adaptive equalization for channels with severe intersymbol interference, signalling, detection and equalization or multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels and concatenated coding together with iterative decoding.Johannes Huber is Fellow of the IEEE. In 2008 he was appointed a corresponding fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh. Since 2009, Johannes Huber is an ordinary member of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities. He served as an Editor-in-Chief and as an Associate Editor for several international journals on information theory and communications.
