Working with this supervisor

Who should apply?

Motivated researchers (PhD, MSc, PDFs) passionate to transform connectivity with artificial intelligence and disruptive 6G techniques and applications. The work is for a project on Robust Intelligence for Beyond-5G Networks and Applications at my research group. The positions are fully funded with an opportunity to develop cutting-edge prototypes.

The research objectives of this project are to:

  1. design robust artificial intelligence techniques for future networks that enable reliable 6G services without compromising operational safety.
  2. model and explore traffic & user experience of 6G services such as extended reality, critical IoT, multi-sensory communications.
  3. invent novel 6G architectures and protocols using methods from predictive communications, cross-layer and joint user-network designs, semantics etc.

Candidates with expertise in wireless communications, machine learning, or test-bed prototyping, and a strong aptitude for innovation. Those from under-represented groups in particular are greatly encouraged to apply.
