Advanced Cellular Communications Research Internship 2024 (Cambridge)


Would you like an opportunity to work with 5G/6G Communication Systems?
We have an excellent opportunity for a talented student who is interested to learn more about the design, innovation and 3GPP standardization process of advanced mobile communication systems.

The Role

This is a fantastic opportunity to gain exposure to new cellular communication standards such as 5G/6G. It will enable you to understand how these new communication standards are derived and how they translate to the design and implementation of devices used by consumers to exchange information over wireless links. Using a combination of theoretical analysis and software simulations, you will be involved in their performance modelling at the system level as well as at the user device level. This is also a great opportunity to develop your research and programming/scripting proficiency, as you apply these skills to the development of complex simulation environments. Through evaluation, analysis, and development of innovative solutions, you will be contributing to the global standardization group (3GPP) on 5G-Advanced/6G systems.

What kind of person we are looking for?

  • ·         Familiarity with any wireless communication system, such as 3GPP 5G NR/LTE, IEEE 802.11 systems.
  • ·         Good English skills, both written and spoken.
  • ·         Involvement in link-level simulation (LLS) and/or system-level simulation (SLS)
  • ·         Programming experience: ideally in C/C++ and Python languages.
  • ·         Good mathematical skills.


  • ·         On track to obtain a good degree in a related field.

·   Duration


The placement will begin in 2024 and we can be flexible about the start date. The length of the internship will need to be 6 to 12 months long.
