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 £70M 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 one full time research fellow to work on Spectrum Sensing / Spectrum Sharing techniques for next generation wireless communication systems for an initial period of 12 months (ending on 31/10/2018), which may then be extended for a further 2 years depending upon yearly progress. The research is funded by US Office of Naval Research Global (ONRG) and is expected to start as soon as possible.


For this opening, the successful candidate will be required to have research experience in Spectrum Sensing / Spectrum Sharing / Cognitive Radio techniques / system in University and/or Industry environments. The candidate’s areas of specialization should also include Physical layer New Waveforms design for radio access of next generation mobile communication systems. Familiarity with hardware prototyping will be an added merit.


Applicants should have a good honors degree in wireless communications or electric engineering. Preference will be given to those with proven experience. Applicants are expected to have a good 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, analyze / design and implement the systems under investigation.
