About Us

ICS is the largest academic research institute in Europe specialising in all aspects of ICT (Information and Communication Technologies). It is home to over 200 researchers with expertise in all communication and broadcasting systems and has developed the best in class large scale testbeds for research and innovation and enjoys the state-of-the-art lab and computing facilities.

Established in 2012, 5GIC is the world’s first dedicated centre in researching end-to-end aspects of 5G and works closely with national and international leading academic institutes and key industrial partners. In November 2020, 6GIC was officially launched with parallel research undertaken in both 5G+ and 6G for 2030+.

About the role

The Institute for Communication Systems (ICS) is looking to recruit multiple Research Software and Hardware Developers in Digital Design for Advanced Communication Systems. The successful candidates will be part of the Wireless Systems Lab group and will have the opportunity to work very close with our industrial partners as well as with academic partners all over the world.

The successful candidates will be part of a group that focuses on research and development in the field of Open Radio Access Networks (Open RAN), with a specific emphasis on Advanced Physical (PHY) Layer designs, Radio Resource Management (RRM) for 5G-NR systems.

The post holders will be expected to:

  • Design, develop and validate efficient processing architectures in the context Open RAN based 5G-NR systems focusing on PHY layer and RRM
  • Target x86 general-purpose processors and/or Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) using RTL. Displaying a high degree of autonomy
  • Find novel solutions to complex problems, as defined by standardisation committees and the Wireless Systems Lab group.
  • Set, define and work towards achieving targets, disseminate results and document work done.

The post holder must have expertise in the following:

  • MIMO and massive MIMO systems for 5G systems and beyond
  • Advanced signal processing techniques for 5GNR Physical Layer, including MIMO and massive MIMO detection and precoding
  • Advanced Radio Resource Management (RRM) methods (e.g., rate adaptation, user scheduling) for 5GNR 

The post holder must also have:

  • Track record of publications in highly ranked journals and conferences.
  • An overall working knowledge of 5GNR

It would be desirable but not essential for the post holder to also have:

  • Prior experience with wireless research platforms (e.g., USRPs)
  • An understanding of the current and future challenges in 5G and Open RAN systems 
  • Hardware and/or software implementation of digital signal processing algorithms in actual, real-time systems
