Applications are invited for a Research Associate position in non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) and 5G wireless communications.

Your role will be to contribute actively to this EPSRC funded research project in NOMA and 5G wireless communication. The aim of this project is to establish a unified theoretical framework for the fundamental limits of NOMA with various practical constraints, and develop sophisticated signal processing algorithms to realize the concept of NOMA in realistic environments.

Your main tasks will be to develop signal processing algorithms in NOMA, design transceiver algorithms with limited feedback, develop low complexity distributed methods with the application of cognitive radio and non-orthogonal multiple access to 5G systems. You will also collaborate with colleagues from our project partners, Edinburgh University and Herriot-Watt University, as well as our industrial partners of the project consortium.

You should hold a relevant degree (e.g. Electronic/Electrical, Control or Computer Engineering) in the research field of wireless and mobile communication network systems. Experience in convex optimization, statistic signal processing, MIMO systems, millimeter-wave or cognitive radio networks would be highly desirable.

You must have very good skills in interpersonal communications, preparation of presentations and journal papers. You will collaborate with teams in other universities and companies and will be actively involved in meetings, workshop and conferences.

You will have responsibility for relevant tasks of the project and be expected to work independently and meet tight deadlines.

This is a fixed term appointment for 36 months.

Please direct informal enquiries to Professor Zhiguo Ding (School of Computing and Communications, Lancaster University), e-mail: z.ding@lancaster.ac.uk . More information can be found at http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/staff/dingz/ .
