Position: Research Fellow/Senior Research Fellow in High Capacity Optical Fibre Transmission Systems
Institution: University College London
Department: Electronic & Electrical Engineering
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The aims of the project are to investigate wideband, spectrally efficient data transmission, employing advanced signal formats and digital signal processing methods, with the aim of exploring the fundamental physical phenomena governing such systems and experimentally demonstrating world-record data throughputs for single-mode fibre systems. The postholders will participate in the design and development of intelligent, ML-based transceivers and extremely wideband optical fibre transmission
Requirements: Candidates should have a PhD (or about to submit) in a relevant branch of science or engineering (Electronic Engineering, Information Engineering or Physics). Expertise in optical communication systems, signal generation and detection, digital/analog signal processing principles and design is essential, as is experience and a track record of hands-on experimental research in optical fibre transmission, including experience with DSP, advanced optical modulation formats and BER measurements. Knowledge of machine learning methods is desirable

The TRANSNET research will focus on the application of machine learning (ML) techniques to develop a new family of adaptive optical transceiver technologies, tailored to the needs of a new generation of intelligent network architectures, capable of taking account of physical channel properties as well as and their experimental demonstration in different transmission scenarios. The EWOC work will involve the design and testing of optical fibre transmission systems covering a 400 nm wavelength band (1270 1670 nm). The aims of the project are to investigate wideband, spectrally efficient data transmission, employing advanced signal formats and digital signal processing methods, with the aim of exploring the fundamental physical phenomena governing such systems and experimentally demonstrating world-record data throughputs for single-mode fibre systems. The postholders will participate in the design and development of intelligent, ML-based transceivers and extremely wideband optical fibre transmission. The posts are available from 1st October 2022 and funded for 24 months in the first instance. Further funding to support the post may be available. Key Requirements Candidates should have a PhD (or about to submit) in a relevant branch of science or engineering (Electronic Engineering, Information Engineering or Physics). Expertise in optical communication systems, signal generation and detection, digital/analog signal processing principles and design is essential, as is experience and a track record of hands-on experimental research in optical fibre transmission, including experience with DSP, advanced optical modulation formats and BER measurements. Knowledge of machine learning methods is desirable. For appointment of the Senior Research Fellow position, candidates must have significant post-doctoral experience in research (theoretical and experimental) associated with optical fibre communications. Experience of managing a research lab is desirable. If the successful candidate has not yet been awarded their PhD, appointment will be made as a Research Assistant (Grade 6B). Payment at Grade 7 will be backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis including corrections, once the PhD has been awarded. The salary scale for Research Assistant (Grade 6B), point 24-26 is £33,184 - £34,976 per annum. Further Details A job description and person specification can be accessed at the bottom of this page.
