Applications are invited for Four posts of Project Engineers. These positions will be up to July 29, 2024 and purely temporary.

About the project: The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) has funded Next Generation Wireless Research and Standardization on 5G and Beyond project to encourage Indian academia and industry to contribute to the 5G+/6G standards. The goal of the project is to generate IPR and then take those IPRs as contributions to the 5G+/6G standards. All activities in this project are focused towards creating IPRs which lead to patents, designing algorithms that will make up the product design and implementation IPRs that can give a head start in developing 5G+/6G telecom products.

What is involved?

Designing and analysing physical layer algorithms for 5G+/6G standard in MATLAB and C. Understanding the future releases of the 5G NR standard, attending standard meetings, and contributing to the standards. Job also involves testing these algorithms on in-house 5G test bed.
