Our Exciting Opportunity  

Ericsson Research develops new communication solutions and standards. The organization has responsibility to provide Ericsson with world-class system concepts, technology innovations, and methodology.  

We are establishing a new research group in Japan. Focus is on air interface concepts, algorithm research, standardization (mainly 3GPP) and potentially some testbed/trial activities. External engagements towards customers, universities and other parts of the eco-system is a natural part of the responsibilities of the position and the operational scope. The group will contribute in our global research project portfolio. 


You will 

  • Investigate and evaluate concepts and solutions for future radio access technologies and standards, such as 6G, 3GPP standardization, 5G Evolution, 5G RAN
  • continuously develop and improve work of existing standards 
  • Master physical layer techniques (multiple access technologies, modulation, channel coding, parameter estimation, multi-antenna transmitter and receiver algorithms, etc.) 
  • Use simulation tools as means of evaluation  
  • Understand the interaction between link and system performance, to ensure that proposed access solutions are enabling efficient overall performance 
  • Understand hardware possibilities and limitations, based on today’s and tomorrow’s technologies 


Over time, you will work with algorithm design, model and simulator tool development, simulations, concept design and standardization. A wide range of additional opportunities, such as customer interactions, testbed implementation and field performance tasks, exist as well.  


To be successful in the role you must have 

  • M.Sc. or Ph.D. degree, or similar, preferably with demonstrated experience and knowledge in the above-mentioned required skills.  
  • Competence and experience in more than two of the following areas: signal processing, control theory, wireless communications, and communications hardware.  
  • Skill in structured object-oriented programming, preferably both C++ and Matlab, as computer simulations will be natural parts of the work in addition to analytical evaluations.  
  • Good knowledge in simulation and evaluation tool methodology 
  • Good communication in written and spoken English, Japanese is preferable 
  • Ability to handle theoretical and practical research as well as the development aspects of the work 
  • Team skills, since collaboration and interaction with other skilled researchers daily are the basis for our ways of working
