Research Fellow in 5G Air Interface for Satellite Communications

University of Surrey - Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering

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 of the 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 50 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.

The ICS is seeking to recruit a full time research fellow to work on 5G Satellite and Terrestrial-Satellite Integration for a fixed period of 30/11/2019. The research is funded by an industrial partner and is expected to start on the 1st December 2017.

For these openings, the successful candidates will be required to have research experience in wireless communications satellite systems design in University and/or Industry environments. Their areas of specialisation should be in advanced digital signal processing, physical layer techniques, satellite system design and architecture optimisation for 5G satellite communications.

Applicants should have a good honors degree in wireless communications or Electronic 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.
