Opportunities overview

The Emerging Radio Systems Group (EmRG) is currently seeking qualified Postdoctoral Fellows (PDFs) or Research Associates for multiple projects. The responsibilities of a postdoctoral fellowship are substantially different from those of graduate studentship. PDFs should be willing and able to:

  • propose, pursue, and carry out research plans with minimal supervision
  • publish and present research outcomes in journals, conferences or reports for industry partners, with minimal supervision
  • exhibit a high degree of professionalism and accountability with regards to research work and deadlines
  • engage and collaborate with graduate students and industry partners and support their research efforts, as needed

To meet these responsibilities, PDFs will need strong written and oral communication skills. Candidates must be able to communicate technical concepts and research findings with precision and clarity. Among non-native English speakers, preference will be given to candidates with an IELTS score of 7.5 or higher across all areas (TOEFL score of 100 or higher).

Specific position descriptions and requirements are listed for each of the projects below:

Instructions for applying can be found at the bottom of this page.
