The School’s Professor Harald Haas is leading the University’s involvement in INITIATE, an EPSRC-funded project which has just opened a call for collaboration from third party projects to explore the future capabilities of the internet. INITIATE brings together the UK’s expertise in network research and innovation along with operational, state-of the-art facilities at five leading networking labs in the Universities of Bristol, Lancaster, Edinburgh and King’s College London as well as at Digital Catapult, London.
The EU-ITN project ENLIGT’EM (https://enlightem.eu/) is now recruiting 15 early stage researchers (ESRs) to work on a diverse range of challenges in visible light communications/LiFi. Two of these positions, ESR 1.1 and ESR 2.1, are now available in the LiFi R&D Centre, School of Engineering, University of Edinburgh.
The Institute for Digital Communications (IDCOM) is seeking a Research Associate to work on the signal processing for wireless networks research. The selected applicant will undertake research on signal processing and information-theoretic study of wireless edge caching, full-duplex radio and massive MIMO systems.
A digital communication engineer appointment is available in the Li-Fi Research and Development Centre. The LiFi Research and Development Centre at the University of Edinburgh is the world leading centre which translates fundamental Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 3 visible light communication research into commercial TRL 6 reference platforms for a large number of industries.
Dr Iain Scott has been awarded a Silver Medal from the Royal Academy of Engineering (RAE) for his contribution to Leonardo’s Vixen-E family of Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) airborne radars.
Building on our continued world-class research and teaching performance, we are seeking to appoint a tenure track Chancellor’s Fellow whose track record places them among the world’s brightest early career researchers. In this prestigious post, initially, you will focus on research and innovation, whilst gradually taking on teaching duties, reaching a full teaching portfolio after 5 years. At that stage, it is intended that you will be on an open-ended academic contract, subject to satisfactory review at year 3. You will be expected to provide excellent vision and delivery in teaching and research, as well as contributing to the School or University leadership and management and to be involved in enhancing e-learning and online teaching initiatives. An important focus of this Fellowship is to extend and develop our existing industrial collaboration and impact.
A multi-disciplinary research team is currently being created for a newly funded £1M research programme in Compressed Quantitative Magnetic Resonance Imaging between the Edinburgh Joint Research Institute in Signal and Image Processing (JRI-SIP) of the University of Edinburgh (UoE) and Heriot-Watt University (HWU), and the Brain Research Imaging Centre (BRIC) at the University of Edinburgh.
