Research Fellow - 5G New Air Interface Techniques

University of Surrey - Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering

Location: Guildford

The Institute for Communication Systems (ICS), the home for the 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC) at the University of Surrey, is the world's first research institute dedicated to the next generation of mobile network technology and has attracted over £70M of support to date. The 5GIC has unparalleled expertise in system research, covering all layers network. It also benefits from excellent research infrastructure, including a large-scale outdoor mobile test-bed, which is one of only a handful of such facilities worldwide. The 5GIC is an international hub for telecommunication research and innovation. It works in close partnership with a consortium of over 25 industry members including key ICT service providers, network and device manufacturers and test equipment solution providers to develop innovative solutions and standards for 5G networks.

ICS is seeking to recruit two full time research fellows to work on 5G new air interface techniques, initially for one year and can be extended further depending on performance.

For this opening, the successful candidate will be required to have research experience in link level mobile communications system design in University and/or Industry environments. Their areas of specialisation should be in advanced digital signal processing, modulation and coding schemes, MIMO detection, graph theory, constellation shaping, and multiple access techniques for 5G.

Applicants should have a good honors degree in wireless communications or electric engineering. Preference will be given to those with proven experience. Applicants are expected to have track record of publications, good problem solving and analytical skills, to be proactive, to engage with other researchers and to be self-motivated.

The successful candidate will, in collaboration with other researchers, specify, design and implement the systems under investigation.
