Position: Postdoctoral Research Assistant
Institution: Queen Mary University of London
Department: School of Electronic Engineering & Computer Science
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The objective of PDRA project is to study the most antenna technology suitable for beam tracking and steering capabilities in millimetre wave frequency bands for sensing and communication systems. The selected antenna solutions should comply with ETSI radiation masks and account for mechanical constraints such as size and compactness. The beam steering angle shall be a key element of the selected antenna technology and phase shifters. The proposed phased antenna arrays will be connected to the National Instruments mm-Wave transceiver system to measure and test sensing and communication system performance
Requirements: The candidate should have completed a PhD or equivalent degree in one of the following: Electric/Electronic Engineering, Computer Science, Physics, Math, and have experience in conducting studies with RF/Microwave subjects (e.g. mm-wave antennas, phase shifters, mm-wave systems, etc.) as well as basic RF/Microwave Engineering and Electromagnetics experience. Experience working on interdisciplinary projects combining antennas with FPGA programming and experience designing or evaluating communication system hardware or software systems is desirable for the post
