Applications are invited for a Masters/PhD studentship in the area of sensing and wireless technologies for reconfigurable radio systems. One of the critical challenges in software radio, or more specifically cognitive radio, is the issue of sensing your environment. In this project we are looking at developing the platforms necessary for sensing other users and collectively agreeing to
a common channel.
Candidates should hold a first or upper second class honours degree in Electronic Engineering. Interest, and preferably experience, in the area of electronics and specifically wireless propagation and RF circuit design is essential.
Successful candidates will join a large multi-disciplinary team and be initially enrolled on a full-time Masters of Engineering Science, with a review after 18 months for progression to a PhD programme.
The studentship will comprise of fees and an annual stipend of 17,000 Euros. It will be initially awarded for a period of 18 months years, extendable upon satisfactory review to a subsequent 18 months. The position is available immediately though, upon agreement, the start date may be postponed to January 2008.
