FTE: 1.0 FTE (35 hours/week)

Term: Fixed to 31 March 2025

The LRDC is looking for candidates with a strong proven track record in either research and/or development in one or more of the following subjects: Optical wireless communications (OWC) (preferred), optical fibre communications, satellite communication, optics, photonics and optoelectronic design, digital signal processing, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) for communication networks. Preferably, we are seeking candidates who can demonstrate strong knowledge and expertise related to the following three positions.   

  1. post-doctoral research associate developing ML algorithms for hybrid multi-access integration of radio frequency (RF) and optical wireless communication (OWC) systems and working with the team on implementation on field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and digital signal processer (DSP) platforms.
  2. post-doctoral research associate designing the segmented optics (such as new flat freeform optics) for our LiFi, multiuser system including the integration of new detectors and transmitter technologies for massive MIMO LiFi systems.
  3. post-doctoral researcher focusing on intelligent and multi technology communication networks.  

The Realising Enabling Architectures and Solutions for Open Networks (REASON) project led by the University of Bristol, was awarded almost £12M to develop and industrialise technologies and solutions for future 6G mobile networks. It brings together an ecosystem representing the entire telecommunication research and development supply chain.

The researchers will actively engage with the different project partners including University of Bristol, Kings College London, University of Southampton, Queens University of Belfast, Thales, among others. This provides unique opportunities for collaboration and career development. The candidate will be guided to achieve project deliverables and also establish a personal research portfolio. It is expected that the candidate engages in relevant student supervision, professional and knowledge exchange activities and administrative activities.

Research Associates will be part of the LiFi Research and Development Centre (LRDC) at the University of Strathclyde which has established an international reputation in collaboration with, and on behalf of industry, aiming to accelerate society’s adoption of LiFi and emerging wireless technology through engagement with major industrial partners, to fully harness the commercial and innovative potential of LiFi.

As a Research Associate, you will develop research objectives and proposals, play a lead role in relation to a specific project/s or part of a broader project, conduct individual and/or collaborative research, contribute to the development of new research methods and communication system prototypes, identify sources of funding, and contribute to the securing of funds for research, including drafting grant proposals and planning for future proposals. You will write up research work for publication, individually or in collaboration with colleagues, and disseminate the results via peer reviewed journal publications and presentation at conferences. You will collaborate with colleagues to ensure that research advances inform departmental teaching effort and you will collaborate with colleagues on the development of knowledge exchange activities by, for example, participating in initiatives which establish research links with industry and influence public policy and the professions. You will supervise student projects, provide advice to students and contribute to teaching as required by, for example, running tutorials and supervising practical work.

To be considered for the role, you will be educated to a minimum of PhD level in an appropriate discipline, or have significant relevant experience in addition to a relevant degree.

Informal enquiries about the post can be directed to Hannah Brown, (h.*****@st****.uk).
