Researcher Radio

Job Description

Date: Sep 18, 2019

Job Summary


Do you want to shape the world of tomorrow? Interested in impacting the future direction of a company with global reach? Are you passionate about technology and love inventing new things? We are looking for a highly skilled, motivated and self-driven researcher to join our world-leading radio research department in Linköping to develop cutting edge technology for future radio networks.



Within Ericsson Research, Research Area Radio is responsible for inventing and evaluating advanced radio network concepts and solutions targeting academic publications, standardization, regulation and product development.

As a Researcher within the Radio department, you will develop concepts and solutions for future radio access technologies including techniques such as Massive-MIMO, spectrum sharing, network coordination, radio resource management, positioning as well as applied machine learning. You will also be part of the continuous development and improvement work of existing global standards, such as 5G NR.

Using simulation tools as means of evaluation is a natural part of the work. Previous experience from stochastic modeling, simulator development or wireless positioning is meriting. Understanding the interaction between link and system performance, to ensure that proposed access solutions are enabling efficient overall performance is highly relevant. Furthermore, understanding spectrum and hardware possibilities or limitations, based on today’s and tomorrow’s technologies is important. Over time our staff will work with model and simulator tool development, simulations, concept design and standardization. A wide range of additional opportunities, such as testbed implementation and field performance tasks, exist as well. This approach enables each researcher to develop a truly broad competence and a holistic view. The work is performed in projects that may incorporate internal and external research collaborations.
To fully master the complexity of modern radio networks a mix of competences from different technical domains are needed, we are interested in applicants with a background in the areas of digital communication, signal processing, information theory, computer science, AI, mathematics and physics. 

Additionally, candidates that possess strong programming skills are particularly interesting as such skills are needed in many core areas: 

Development of research tools, including for technical computations, simulation, and visualization. This ranges from quick hacks (e.g. personal tools that are thrown away after use) all the way up to officially maintained tools that are shared across tens to hundreds of researchers and developed over many years.
Interacting with Ericsson product developers, including understanding how practical constraints impact the development of algorithms and system principles.
Taking part in development projects, e.g. for prototypes or testbeds of potential future products.

The available Researcher position will strengthen our research on communication concepts for the ongoing evolution of 5G as well as the upstart of 6G. 

Minimum Qualifications & Experience Requirements:

• M.Sc. or Ph.D. degree, or similar, preferably with demonstrated experience and knowledge within research.
• Previous experience in at least one of the following areas: signal processing, artificial intelligence, wireless mobile communication, positioning, Monte-Carlo simulations.
• Fluency in written and spoken English.
• Great communication skills and ability to work in a team.
• Strong personal drive and focus on the tasks at hand.

Preferred Qualifications & Experience Requirements:

• Skills in structured object-oriented programming, such as Java or C++, alternatively in matlab
• Good knowledge in simulation and evaluation tool methodology is desirable.
• Interest in leadership or leadership experience.


Location: Linköping, Sweden
