Research Fellow in Semantic Communication and Sensing

Institute for Communication Systems

Location:  Guildford
Salary:  £33,314 to £51,805 per annum
Fixed Term
Post Type:  Full Time
Closing Date:  23.59 hours BST on Thursday 08 June 2023
Reference:  093222-R-R

The Institute for Communication Systems (ICS) home of the 5G/6G Innovation Centre (5G/6GIC) is looking to recruit a research fellows (RA1 or RA2) in Semantic Communication and Sensing.

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 post-holders will be conduct fundamental research in semantic communication and sensing. Specifically, including (but not limited to): advanced environmental sensing technologies, semantic information theory, semantic encoding and decoding, semantic security, and semantic resource allocation.

The research will focus on the fundamental theory and algorithm development of semantic communication and sensing. 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+.

Semantic information and coding theory, radio resource allocation and optimisation, wireless security, (distributed) deep learning, computer simulations and machine learning programming are key skills needed and PhD with good quality publications in the field are important qualifications to have. 

The candidates will need to be able to work in a team of researchers.
