Job description

Applications are invited for a position as Research Associate in machine learning for wireless networks at the King’s College London. The position is full time and fixed term for three-years. The post is due to start in 1st of April 2022.

The role will be part of an EPSRC-funded project on Smart Solutions Towards Cellular-Connected Unmanned Aerial Vehicles System (AUTONOMY). This is a joint project among King’s College London, University of Southampton, Queen Mary University of London and with industrial partners, such as Ericsson, Accelercomm and Toshiba. Currently recruitment is underway for one PDRA at each institution.

You will be a conscientious, innovative experimental scientist who has successfully completed a PhD (or equivalent) in Telecoms, computer science and engineering including electrical/electronic engineering or similar. Experience in design machine learning algorithms for wireless networks is preferred.

At King’s, you will join a research-leading and multi-disciplinary team led by Dr Yansha Deng. You will be based in the Centre for Telecommunications Research group at the Department of Engineering. The successful candidate will also be expected to collaborate with the project partners and members of the research group and the UKRI TAS Hub.

The role will involve carrying out research in machine learning for cellular-connected UAV (C-UAV) swarms, with the objective of develop and implement full network automation via simulations and prototypes. Research will need to be carried out to:

  • Study machine learning solutions to fulfil the requirements of C-UAV swarms
  • Design and prototype C-UAV swarms testbed
  • Validate the proposed solutions in simulator and prototype.

The successful candidate will have a strong interest in at least one of these, and a keen interest in the other. The successful candidate will be able to develop skills in the exciting and emerging field of machine learning for future wireless networks.

The role may involve irregular hours, with intense periods of activity leading up to deadlines such as publications or deliverable milestones.

The key challenges on which the applicant will focus can be briefly defined as the following:
