The Institute for Communication Systems (ICS) home of the 5G/6G Innovation Centre (5G/6GIC) is looking to recruit two 6G Research Fellows in Advanced Wireless Communications.

The successful candidates will join an exciting team undertaking research in advanced Physical Layer algorithms for support of Terabits per second communication, Satellite communications, THz, IoT, that includes but is not limited to: algorithms for Massive MIMO, Wireless AI, Parallel signal processing, UWB, Channel coding and Modulation schemes and diversity schemes.

The focus of the projects the candidate will contribute to is mainly on Physical Layer algorithms for both transmitter and receiver for multi-user communications. The research is carried out using a combination of computer simulations and mathematical analysis for frequencies above 5GHz all the way to TeraHertz and Visible Light.

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+.

Candidates should have:

  • Expertise in large-scale MIMO detection and precoding, distributed massive-MIMO architecture and backhaul design, beamforming optimisation and selection
  • UWB
  • THz Communications
  • Expertise in deep learning for wireless modem design including deep learning algorithm development and FPGA implementation
  • Expertise in MATLAB, Python (TensorFlow) and C programming for deep learning
  • Strong expertise in signal processing for wireless communication systems (especially modulation/waveform design)
  • Expertise in large-scale MIMO detection and precoding, distributed massive-MIMO architecture and backhaul design, beamforming optimisation and selection
  • Expertise in deep learning for wireless modem design including deep learning algorithm development and FPGA implementation
  • Strong expertise in signal processing for wireless communication systems
  • Very good understanding of new trends in the field like multiuser Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output (MIMO) systems, beamforming methods, and Non-Orthogonal Multiple Access (NOMA) systems 
  • Very good understanding of communications theory
  • Recent research experience in the development of advanced physical layer algorithms and systems
  • Very good understanding of state-of-the-art detection, interference handling, and channel encoding/decoding methods
  • Very good understanding of communications theory
  • Strong research and analytical (mathematical) skills
  • Proven track record of innovation supported by publications in high ranked journals and conferences
  • Very good written and verbal communication skills
