Queen’s University Belfast

Research Fellow - Wireless Hardware Design for Massive MIMO                   

Ref: 19/107145

Centre for Wireless Innovation

School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science


The Centre for Wireless Innovation at Queen’s University Belfast is seeking to appoint one (1) Research Fellow for 11 months (extendable to 17 months pending funder approval) in order to carry out research on millimetre-wave massive MIMO techniques, as part of a project funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.


The successful candidate will work closely to design theoretical and practical solutions to reduce the digital signal processing complexity, power consumption and RF circuitry/antennas for mm-wave massive MIMO configurations.

The proposed solutions will leverage the hybrid processing paradigm, where a portion of digital processing will be performed in the analogue domain. At the end of the project, the research team will have built a unique energy-efficient, mm-wave massive MIMO demonstrator of minimum complexity. The candidate will join a vibrant research group of 60 people, including 13 academics.


The candidate will also have the opportunity to contribute to the research activities of the new Queen’s Global Research Institute on Electronics, Communications and Information Technology (ECIT-2).


This post is available until 31 August 2020


The successful applicant must have:


•  Have (or about to be awarded in the next 3 months) a PhD in Electronics, Electrical Engineering, or closely related discipline.

•  At least 2:1 honours degree in Electronics, Electrical Engineering, or closely related discipline.

•  At least 3 years’ research experience in antenna design and measurement.

•  Ability to contribute to research management and administrative processes.

•  Contribute to the School’s outreach programme by links with industry, community groups etc.


Anticipated interview date: Monday 4 March 2019


Salary scale:   £33,199 - £36,261 per annum


Closing date: Monday 25 February 2019
