Established in 2012, 5GIC is the world’s first dedicated centre in researching end-to-end aspects of 5G and works closely with national and international leading academic institutes and key industrial partners. In November 2020, 6GIC was officially launched with parallel research undertaken in both 5G+ and 6G for 2030+.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in wireless communications or signal processing. Preference will be given to those with proven experience. Applicants are expected to have a track record of publications in high-impact factor international journals such as IEEE Transactions, good problem solving and analytical skills, be proactive, engage with other researchers, and be self-motivated. The successful candidate is expected, in collaboration with his supervisor, to specify the ultimate localization bounds for 6G and design efficient localization algorithms for systems under investigation. 

The successful candidates will be joining a very strong and vibrant research team and will be supported by academic staff working on the programme. For informal enquiries please contact Dr. Ahmed Elzanaty [email protected].
