The Computer Science department at the University of York enjoys a distinguished reputation in the fields of teaching, research, and industry engagement. It has a proven track record of success in research, as demonstrated by its impressive 11th and 12th rankings in the UK for Computer Science in the recent Research Excellence Framework (REF) and the Complete University Guide 2023, respectively.
The department co-leads the EPSRC funded Communications Hub for empowering distributed cloud computing applications and research and collaborates closely on many projects with the School of Physics, Engineering, and Technology. The School of Physics, Engineering, and Technology has recently secured very substantial funding for several wireless communications projects focussing on Open RAN for next generation radio access networks. YO-RAN, a £7.3M collaborative project led by York, has recently started funded by 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.
To support the research projects, the Department is looking for a Research Software Engineer to work on open networking and RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC) development, including development of xApps and rApps. In this role you will be involved in an Open RAN research project and you are expected to also contribute to scientific publications and demos.
