The School is proud to hold Juno Champion, and Athena Swan awards.
The School has recently secured very substantial funding for several wireless communications projects focusing on Open RAN for next generation radio access networks. YO-RAN, a £7.3M collaborative project led by York, has recently started, funded by the UK Government, Department of Digital, Science Innovation and Technology as part of its Future Open Networks Research Challenge. Alongside YO-RAN a new, York-led £5.1M project has recently been awarded on O-RAN funded by the UK Government, and a £1.2M collaborative project funded by EPSRC that is investigating Cell-Free Massive MIMO.
This role is primarily focused on the investigation and development of Cell-Free Massive MIMO, as well as participating in technology trials. The successful candidate will have experience of computer simulation at link and/or system level, as well as excellent theoretical skills. They will also have a good publication record, and should be prepared to work to tight deadlines, as part of a large multi-institution project. The role is available on a fixed term basis until February 2026.
