University of Sussex

Location: Falmer
Salary: £34,304 to £40,927 per annum, pro rata if part time
Hours: Full Time, Part Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 13th January 2022

Job Ref: 7630

The Sensor Technology Research Centre led by Prof. Robert Prance and Prof. Daniel Roggen at the University of Sussex is looking for a Research Fellow to work on a research-intensive and innovative project funded by a large consumer electronics multinational active in the mobile device and telecommunication sector.

The primary aim of the project is to develop a novel near-field capacitive communication channel based on our patented Electric Potential Sensor technology. The focus of the role is to develop a low-power, low-data rate (

This position requires expertise in embedded computing and digital design for digital communication aspects of the project.

Key responsibilities
Your role will be to research, implement and evaluate various digital modulation and demodulation schemes for electric-field body area networks. This will be done using a combination of FPGA and/or microcontroller systems. You will then explore novel applications for this technology in Wearable, Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing. You will write scientific papers and contribute to project reports, demonstrations and patent filing, working in a core team of four to five researchers within a larger research centre.

Key Requirements
Candidates should have excellent scientific and technical skills and a PhD in computer engineering, electronics engineering, or equivalent. They should have a strong background in embedded computing, digital system design and digital communication. The candidates should know how to realise various modulation/demodulation schemes using commercial or custom FPGA platforms and/or microcontrollers.

The candidate should have a strong interest in exploring novel applications and devices exploiting this communication channel, for example in wearable VR/AR, HCI, health, sports and entertainment applications.

Advantages and career development.
This position is ideally suited for somebody who wants to advance their career in the rapidly expanding field of short-range low-power electric field communication and smart wearables. This project will provide an opportunity to publish and present in high-impact journals and conferences as well as filing patents. The project has the potential to lead to a spin-off, further industrial collaboration and offers broad networking opportunities.

Please contact Prof. Daniel Roggen d.roggen@sussex.ac.uk , for informal enquiries.
