Nokia Bell Labs is a global research community which has been changing the
world of information technology for more than a century through the release
of breakthrough inventions such as modern information theory, the
transistor, the laser and the UNIX operating system.

Nokia Bell Labs in Madrid, Spain, is participating in the European project
TeamUp5G (New RAN TEchniques for 5G UltrA-dense Mobile networks), an H2020
funded project part of the prestigious Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action (MSCA),
Innovative Training Network (ITN) type. We are searching for an Early Stage
Researcher (ESR) willing to develop a full PhD in an industrial environment
within this project, focused on the real time immersive video (360/VR/AR) on
top of dense 5G networks. The work will address one or several steps of a
multimedia communication process within this scenario: multi-camera capture,
real-time video analysis (machine learning) on the network edge,
optimization of video transmission under low-latency networks, rendering of
complex XR environments, analysis of QoE. 

-	University degree on computer science, electrical engineering or related.
Admission requirements for PhD program (MSc or equivalent). The researcher
is expected to start the PhD program immediately after the hiring.
-	Good knowledge of digital video technology, preferably in the specific
area of immersive media (360 video, VR or AR). A good technical base of
communication protocols is also desirable.
-	Experience with Machine Learning will be positively valued.
-	Other relevant technology areas which are considered positive for this
position are: mobile network architecture, distributed media processing,
edge computing and virtualization (cloud computing).
-	Excellent oral and written proficiency in English (Spanish is optional).
Requirements from Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITNs:
-	At the time of appointment, applicants may not have resided or carried out
their main activity (work, studies) in Spain for more than 12 months in the
3 years immediately before their recruitment.
-	Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs) must, at the date of recruitment by the
beneficiary, be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research
experience) of their research careers and have not been awarded a doctoral

The selected candidate will receive a 36-month, full-time employment
contract as per Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions regulations for ESRs. Yearly
gross salary range: €31,000 - €34,000. Additional family allowance available
where applicable.
