Research Engineer – Protocol & Algorithm Design (Qualcomm Research – Berkeley, CA)

Requisition # G1913309
Job Title Research Engineer – Protocol & Algorithm Design (Qualcomm Research – Berkeley, CA)
Post Date 03/15/2013
Company – Division Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. – Corporate Research & Development 
Job Area Engineering – Software
Location California – Berkeley
Job Function This candidate will be researching, designing, developing, prototyping, testing, evaluating, and productizing various protocols and algorithms that generally enable media delivery to mobile devices.

Examples of current ongoing projects include: 
(1) algorithm design and prototyping for dynamic adaptive streaming over http (DASH) mobile clients
(2) protocols and algorithms that use application-layer FEC codes, to enable and enhance media delivery using UDP, HTTP and broadcast/multicast networks to mobile devices.

Responsibilities Projects evolve over time and thus there is a strong

requirement that a suitable candidate be flexible and versatile to be able to contribute to both current projects and any future projects. The suitable candidate will have skills that range from mathematical abstract research to practical protocol and algorithm evaluation and design to developing, testing and documenting product-quality implementations.

  • C/C++ programming skills
  • Must have high level of mathematical sophistication
  • Strong understanding of TCP/IP layers and some familiarity with wired and wireless networks
  • Significant hands-on experience with efficient algorithm implementation, familiarity with basic testing and simulation tools (as examples, Python, Matlab, Ns2, and scripting languages in general)
  • Highly developed verbal communication skills, excellent writing skills ranging from writing top-notch research papers to producing

    excellent documentation for product-level implementation of protocols, algorithms and applications.

Education Requirements Required: Doctorate, Computer Engineering and/or Computer Science and/or Electrical Engineering

Ph.D., preferably in computer science or electrical engineering, or other related engineering disciplines. Preference is for candidates close to the start of their professional career, with interests ranging from abstract mathematical to practical algorithm design and implementation.
