We are looking for an experienced researcher working with concept development and as a delegate for 3GPP RAN2 standardization, together with rest of the respective standardization teams!

The most successful candidate has competence in Layer 2 aspects of the radio interface and the RAN architecture while competence in Layer 1 and Layer 3 is a plus. The mission will be to drive the evolution of the 3GPP standards as a member of a feature team and to work as a 3GPP delegate. This includes driving studies and developing new concepts that will be used during the 3GPP meetings to drive Ericsson’s aspects and strategies of the standard development for both future and existing NR technologies.


The section you will be working in has delegates represented in all RAN working groups and is staffing Feature Teams in a variety of WI/SI areas within 3GPP. We are a diverse group of open-minded people positioned both within and outside of Sweden with the majority positioned in Stockholm/Kista.

An experienced researcher will strengthen our efforts in concept development and standardisation of 5G and 6G systems. In these efforts, we work together in diverse teams to define and realise new capabilities for future mobile networks used by billions of people worldwide.


In our unit at Ericsson, NSV TC Standardization, we have the mission to bring product awareness when we develop and drive outstanding procedures, protocols and architecture solutions for current and future wireless systems.

As a Researcher in 5G and 6G standardization, you will join an international team of world-class researchers with different backgrounds and experiences, including some of the key authorities and technology leaders in mobile communication. The position is primarily based at the Ericsson site Kista or Linköping, Sweden but other locations might also be possible.

What you will do

  • Contribute to the global standardization in 3GPP, either as a delegate attending the standardization meetings, and/or as part of the feature team inventing new concepts.
  • Write contributions to the standards and protect your ideas in patents.
  • Invent solutions for 5G and 6G radio networks and be involved in evaluating their performance using state-of-the-art prototypes or radio network system simulators.

You will bring

  • Excitement to work in an environment where you collaborate closely in a diverse team, together striving to fulfil common targets according to set strategies.
  • Ability to connect with people and to explain and convey your insights and knowledge to others.
  • Excellent analytical skills and eagerness to find innovative solutions to sophisticated problems.
  • Passion for an in-depth understanding of digital and wireless communication and cellular systems design.
  • Ability to put theory into practice, using and developing simulation tools for evaluating new ground-breaking ideas.
  • MSc or PhD degree in electrical engineering, computer science or related fields.
  • Experience from standardization, especially in 3GPP is highly appreciated
