    • SP1537: Machine Learning for Wireless Communications

      MERL is seeking an intern to work on machine learning for wireless communication systems. The ideal candidate would be an experienced PhD student or post-graduate researcher working in wireless communications with a focus on machine learning methods. The candidate should have a detailed knowledge of wireless communications, with some experience in machine learning, MIMO, and/or channel equalization preferred. Strong programming skills in Python and machine learning frameworks are essential. The expected duration of the internship is 3-6 months with flexible start date and length. This internship is preferred to be onsite at MERL, but may be done remotely where you live if the COVID pandemic makes it necessary.
