PhD Opportunities in Wireless and Mobile Communications

PhD Opportunities in Wireless and Mobile Communications

Full time PhD studentships in wireless and mobile communications graded 4 in the last RAE, are available for graduates with a good honours degree in engineering, or a relevant subject area, or an equivalent qualification.

A studentship is full-time for three years, and has a value of £9,500 per year plus the possibility of paid demonstrating duties of up to six hours per week. The studentship includes tuition fees to UK/UE nationals, or an equivalent fee contribution to non UK/EU nationals.

A number of research projects are available in the Integrated Communication Research Centre (ICRC)-full details can be found on our web site. These include:

Wireless Mobile Radio at Millimetre Waves Frequencies
Radiowave Propagation
Satellite Communications
Mobile Computing
Mobile Networking
The ICRC was established in 2006 through the convergence of two well-established research units; the Radiowave Propagation & System Design RU and the Mobile Computing, Communications & Computing RU. The main objective of the ICRC is the consolidation of the research work of the two research units and to combine this with extended research themes and capability in the Faculty of Advanced Technology covering the full networking protocol stack – from mobile applications through the network layer stack to broadband wireless communication systems and radio propagation studies. The Centre thus brings together relevant research on wireless communications and mobile computing to form an overall comprehensive framework for research and development in the field.

Further information on the Centre, and the research web pages can be found on the website

Applications are also welcome from those with their own project proposals.

Closing date for applications, 27 June 2008.
Interviews will be held mid July 2008.
Expected start date, 1 October 2008.
