The Centre for Wireless Innovation (CWI) in EEECS at Queen’s University Belfast, is currently seeking to appoint exceptional candidates to the posts of Research Fellow.
The successful candidates will be highly productive, ambitious and collaborative members of the Hub on All Spectrum Connectivity (HASC).
One post will focus on spectrum sensing for future wireless systems where the post holder will perform sensing measurements using equipment available within the Centre for Wireless Innovation across frequency bands in the microwave, millimetre-wave and terahertz (THz) regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. The post holder will use the measurements to characterise and develop models for spectrum utilisation and interference. They will then use the models to propose co-existence and spectrum sharing strategies.
The other post will focus on channel modelling for future microwave, millimetre-wave and THz wireless systems where the postholder will conduct a series of channel simulations and measurements at frequencies likely to be used by radio access technologies in future wireless systems. The measurements will also include novel propagation manipulating tools such as reconfigurable intelligent surfaces (RIS) developed in the CWI. Building upon the measurements, the post holder will develop a new generation of wireless channel models, specifically tailored to these systems.
The successful candidate must have, and your application should clearly demonstrate that you meet the following criteria:
Pease note the above are not an exhaustive list. For further information about the role, please visit our wesbite.
These posts are available on fixed term contracts for 3 years or until 31st March 2027, whichever comes first.
Fixed term contract posts are available for the stated period in the first instance but in particular circumstances may be renewed or made permanent subject to availability of funding.
