Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have an established background in the area of modern cellular wireless networks? Do you want to further your career in one of the UKs leading research intensive Universities?

The University of Leeds along with external partners is investing around £60 Million in establishment of a new high speed rail institute. A 10 acre site is being developed as a Rail Engineering/Technology campus, primarily for HSR research and including a “systems integration” centre in which School of Electronics and Electrical Engineering is contributing significantly.

This post is funded by our industrial partners to develop innovative solutions which exploit 5G wireless technologies to provision monitoring and proactive repairs for critical high speed rail infrastructure.

You will have a PhD (or close to completion) in Electronics and Electrical Engineering or a closely allied discipline, with a strong background in wireless communication and networking, and hands on experience in prototyping radio communication solutions using software-defined radio and IoT.
