Research Fellow in 5G Wireless Communications
Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering
Salary: £31,302 to £39,609 per annum
Post Type: Full Time
Closing Date: Sunday 10 March 2019
Interview Date: To be confirmed
The Institute for Communication Systems (ICS), the home for the 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC) at the University of Surrey, is the world's first research institute dedicated to the next generation of mobile network technology and has attracted over £90M of support to date. The 5GIC has unparalleled expertise in system research, covering all layers of the network. It also benefits from excellent research infrastructure, including a large-scale outdoor mobile test-bed, which is one of only a handful of such facilities worldwide. The 5GIC is an international hub for telecommunication research and innovation. It works in close partnership with a consortium of over 50 industry members including key ICT service providers, network and device manufacturers and test equipment solution providers to develop innovative solutions and standards for 5G networks.
The ICS is seeking to recruit a full time Research Fellow to work on Distributed Autonomous and Resilient Communication Management System as well as Link Level Simulator development for a fixed period until August 2020. The project is funded by EPSRC.
For this opening, the successful candidates will be required to have research experience in wireless communication systems design in University and/or Industry environments. Their areas of specialisation for this post should be in stochastic modeling and network performance analysis, stochastic geometry, system & link level simulations, wireless sensor networks (WSNs), ad-hoc networks and future cellular networks (5G and beyond). etc.
Applicants should have a good honors degree in wireless communications or Electronic engineering. Preference will be given to those with proven experience. Applicants are expected to have track record of publications, good problem solving and analytical skills, to be proactive, to engage with other researchers and to be self-motivated.
The successful candidate will, in collaboration with other researchers, specify, design and implement the systems under investigation.
Please note, it is University Policy to offer a starting salary equivalent to Level 3.6 (£31,302) to successful applicants who have been awarded, but are yet to receive, their PhD certificate. Once the original PhD certificate has been submitted to the local HR Department, the salary will be increased to Level 4.1 (£32,236).
