The School of Physics, Engineering and Technology brings physicists and engineers together to push the frontiers of knowledge, foster innovation and meet the grand challenges facing society. Our aim is to deliver world-leading research in both fundamental and applied areas whilst developing new technologies that work for the public good, in an environment where everyone can thrive.
As a School, equality, diversity, and inclusion are central to our culture and we strive to provide a working environment which allows all staff and students to contribute fully, to flourish, and to excel. We aim to ensure that there is a supportive and egalitarian culture at all levels and across all staff groups and offer a range of family friendly, inclusive employment policies, flexible working arrangements, staff engagement forums, campus facilities and services to support staff from different backgrounds. We are proud to hold Juno Champion and Athena Swan bronze awards, which recognise our commitment to creating an equitable and fully inclusive environment in which staff and students can thrive. We aim to inspire young people to engage with science and engineering through our outreach work.
The School has recently been awarded £1.2M by EPSRC for a collaborative project with 5GIC/6GIC at University of Surrey. This project will investigate theoretical performance limits and their practical implementations for cell-free massive MIMO, a new paradigm for radio access networks including Open RAN.
This role is primarily focussed on the information theoretic performance limits and resource allocation techniques of cell-free massive MIMO networks, as well as their practical implementations. The successful candidate will have substantial experience of computer simulation at the physical layer, as well as excellent theoretical background on wireless communications and optimisation skills. They will also have a strong publication record, and experience of working to deadlines as part of a multi-institution project.
