Research Fellow In Physical Layer (PHY) Design For Tbps Communications (043321)
University Of Surrey
The Institute for Communication Systems (ICS) home of the 5G and 6G Innovation Centre (5G+6GIC) is looking to recruit a Research Fellow in Physical Layer (PHY) Design for Tbps Communications. The successful candidate will be part of the Wireless Systems Lab and will have the opportunity to work very close with industrial partners as well as academic partners all over the world.
The successful candidate will be part of a group that focuses on advanced signal processing architectures for future communication systems and their efficient realization on hardware and software platforms, as well as on experimentation and concept validation via software defined radios. The post holder will be expected to design, develop and validate efficient physical layer algorithmic architectures for Tbps communication systems, including advanced ultra-fast and ultra-power efficient detection/decoding methods. The post holder will be expected to be able to set, define and work towards achieving targets, disseminate results and document work done.
ICS is the largest academic research institute in Europe specialising on 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.
The successful candidate will be joining a very strong and vibrant research team and will be supported by academic staff and PhD students working on the programme, although he/she will be expected to coordinate as well as contribute to the research. This is a 2 year post starting September 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter.
The post holder must have:
Very strong expertise in signal processing and algorithmic development for wireless communication systems including detection and decoding
Very good understanding of communications theory and estimation/detection theory.
Recent and very strong research experience in the development of advanced physical layer functionalities algorithms (e.g., multicarrier- transmissions, detection/decoding.
Strong research experience in state-of-the-art channel encoding/decoding schemes
Very good understanding of the physical layer algorithmic architectures of state-of-the-art systems and standards
Excellent track record of publications in highly ranked journals and conferences in the above fields
Excellent programming skills
It would be desirable but not essential for the post holder to also have:
Experience with FPGA development
Experience in SIMD programming using Intel intrinsics
