Applications are invited for the post of Project Scientist to work for "Indigenous 5G Testbed Project" at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IITK). (Post is purely temporary and on contractual basis for period of one year.)

About the project:

The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has funded a large scale 5G testbed project to encourage Indian startups and the industry to take an early lead in 5G.The goal of the project is to build a testbed that closely resembles a real-world 5G deployment. The project will deliver an end-to-end 5G testbed comprising of 5G BS and UE nodes that support enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), Ultra low latency communication (URLLC) and massive MTC including NB IoT services. This testbed could become a basis for many commercial deployments.

What is involved?

This involves designing and fabricating multiple high-end components such as baseband processing units, remote radio heads, RF modules, and baseband algorithms and software.

Who is involved?

Top Indian Institutes and startups such as IITK, IIT D, IIT M, IISc, Sameer, and CEWiT are involved in this project. Many private companies are also a part of this effort.

What are we looking for?

Smart, dedicated, and enthusiastic people who want to work on cutting edge research problems and build hands-on experience with latest tools and hardware. The project requires a team working on cutting edge technology and tools with a goal of demonstrating of an end-to-end working cellular system. Working on this project would train you in wireless technologies that are great in demand in the job markets.
