Institute for Communication Systems
Salary: £33,314 to £42,155 per annum
Post Type: Full Time
Closing Date: 23.59 hours GMT on Sunday 23 April 2023
The Institute for Communication Systems (ICS) home of the 5G/6G Innovation Centre (5G/6GIC) is looking to recruit 2 research fellows in 6G networking and Network Management
These posts will work on “TUDOR” (Towards Ubiquitous 3D Open Resilient Network), an exciting new research project aiming to solve many societal, environmental and economic grand challenges such as the digital divide and energy efficiency by advanced technology innovations in open telecommunications systems.
The posts will conduct research in 6G networking and network management. Specifically, it includes (but not limited to): 6G open networking, flexible integration of terrestrial and non-terrestrial networks (NTNs), network function disaggregation, network resilience and AI-driven network automation.
The involved activities will include both theoretical research and experiments based on Surrey’s world-leading network testing facilities. The project will provide rich research collaboration opportunities with world-leading research institutes, industry, and regulation bodies. The research will be carried out using a combination of mathematical modelling, computer simulations, machine learning algorithm design and testbed implementation.
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+.
5G (and beyond) mobile networking, space networking including satellite and UAV, network management and orchestration, AI-driven network automation, simulation and testbed experiences. C/C++ programming skills are essential. Experiences on P4, SDN/NFV will be a distinct advantage.
The candidates will need to be able to work within a team of researchers.
