The mission of the ARIAS laboratory is to study and solve challenging problems in wireless networks and cyber security, with a particular focus on cognitive radio networks, related technologies for spectrum sharing, and their security implications. The current research thrusts of ARIAS include the following areas:
Dr. Jerry Park, the founding director of ARIAS, is the site director of an NSF-sponsored multi-university Industry-University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC) called Broadband Wireless Access & Applications Center (BWAC).
The Broadband Wireless Access & Applications Center (BWAC) is a multi-university research center sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) under its Industry-University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC) program. BWAC partner universities (sites) include University of Arizona, Auburn University, University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, the University of Notre Dame and the University of Mississippi. The primary mission of BWAC is to work with industry and academic partners to pursue large-scale research projects, address challenging spectrum access problems through novel broadband technologies, and create new visions for the wireless industry. BWAC researchers work closely with industrial partners, through its Industrial Affiliates Program, to develop novel and innovative wireless technologies and applications. Please visit the BWAC website here for current and up-to-date information on our research projects and activities.
The Broadband Wireless Access & Applications Center (BWAC) invites applications for a post-doctoral research associate position and 2 GRA positions.
--Post-doctoral research associate (one position): Applicants should hold a PhD in Electrical/Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or a closely related field. Applicants should have expertise in one or more of the following areas: security and privacy; dynamic spectrum sharing; cognitive radio networks; IoT; and 5G and other next-generation wireless technologies. Please send your detailed CV as a pdf file to Prof. Jerry Park (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Graduate research assistant (PhD student; 2 positions): BWAC is looking to hire highly motivated PhD students to participate in ongoing research projects on dynamic spectrum sharing, cognitive radio networks, and wireless security. Please send your detailed CV as a pdf file to Prof. Jerry Park (email@example.com).

Jerry Park (VT PI), in collaboration with Temple University and the University of Arizona, won $1.1M for a project titled “Coexistence of Heterogeneous Wireless Access Technologies in the 5 GHz Band.” VT’s portion in this project is $375K. This project aims to create solutions caused by interference of unlicensed‐LTE, Wi-Fi, and Dedicated Short‐Range Communications (DSRC) operating in the same band and generalize these solutions to new technologies beyond today’s LTE, Wi-Fi, and DSRC systems.
