Nokia is a global leader in the technologies that connect people and things. With state-of-the-art software, hardware and services for any type of network, Nokia is uniquely positioned to help communication service providers, governments, and large enterprises deliver on the promise of 5G, the Cloud and the Internet of Things. Serving customers in over 100 countries, our research scientists and engineers continue to invent and accelerate new technologies that will increasingly transform the way people and things communicate and connect.

Job Description:

The primary responsibility for this position is to conduct performance analyses and system simulations for current and next-generation mobile wireless

networks, including radio access network algorithms, architecture, and emerging technologies. It includes research, design and development of physical-layer massive MIMO beamforming, scheduling and radio resource management algorithms, using mathematical models and/or large-scale link-level and system-level simulations and/or prototypes to validate the performance benefits of new design concepts and algorithms. It requires the knowledge and familiarity of 5G systems and in particularly working experience in the Radio/PHY and/or MAC/RRM area. In particular, it requires knowledge of physical layer and signal processing technologies in the areas of massive MIMO, beamforming, channel estimation, link adaptation, single-user and multi-user MIMO, and cooperative multipoint operation. Knowledge of dual connectivity, carrier aggregation, DSS and associated load balancing and flow control performance optimization concepts. The candidate will work in hands-on development of simulations/analysis.

Key Responsibilities:

+ Conduct performance analyses and system simulations for 5G mobile wireless networks, focusing on radio resource management algorithms

+ Research, design, and development of physical-layer massive MIMO beamforming, scheduling and radio resource management algorithms

+ Implement the massive MIMO beamforming and radio resource management algorithm designs in mathematical models and/or large-scale link-level and system-level simulations

+ Analyse and validate the algorithm design performance benefit and refine/improve the design/algorithms

+ Design and performance validation of AI/ML models for 5G mobile network use case applications


+ Knowledge and working experience in advanced mobile radio networks, such as LTE and 5G.

+ Knowledge and working experience in scheduler, radio resource management area and PHY/radio, such as, massive MIMO, channel estimation, and link adaptation algorithms, etc.

+ Knowledge of beamforming techniques, such as, eigen beamforming, zero-forcing, and grid-of-beams techniques.

+ Knowledge of AI/ML such as the supervised learning, reinforcement learning, and associated training technic and tools.

+ Knowledge of AI/ML such as the supervised learning, reinforcement learning, and associated training technic and tools.

+ Knowledge of single-user and multi-user MIMO techniques, distributed MIMO,

+ Knowledge of load balancing, flow control type of performance optimization for dual connectivity and carrier aggregation

+ Knowledge of performance optimization techniques and methods, and its applications to wireless networks

+ Familiarity and working experience of large scale system simulators, being able to make necessary modifications to conduct performance analysis for new concept algorithm design including performance evaluation, enhancements, and optimization.

+ Proficiency in C/C++ and Matla

Personal attributes:

+ Able to work with the team, positive attitude, and ready to take-on challenges

+ Good interpersonal and communication skills

+ Good presentation and writing skills

+ Ability to drive the technical priorities for the group and mentor team members

Experience required: A MS or Ph.D student (preferred) in Electrical Engineering with specialization in Digital Communications and Digital Signal processing. Familiarity in the areas of cellular communication and MAC/RRM/PHY algorithm and design is required for this position.

Programming in C, C++ and Matlab is essential.
