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. The group will contribute in our global research project portfolio. Engagements towards local universities and customers as well as other parts of the local and global eco-system is a natural part of the responsibilities of the position and the operational scope.


You will

  • Investigate and evaluate concepts and solutions for future radio access technologies and standards, such as 5G RAN, 5G Evolution and 6G, 3GPP standardization
  • 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

  • Ph.D. or M.Sc. 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.
  • 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 and Japanese
  • 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
