Coventry University has been voted ‘Modern University of the Year’ three times running by The Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide. Ranked in the UK’s top 15 (Guardian University Guide), we have a global reputation for high quality teaching and research with impact. Almost two-thirds (61%) of our research was judged ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014.
The Centre for Advanced Low-carbon Propulsion Systems (C-ALPS) is seeking exceptional and motivated PhD candidates wishing to engage with world-class research and world-leading industrialists in the area of power electronics.
The recent progress in development of power electronic applications, such as multistage and multilevel converters, advanced drives and regenerative electrical conversion, emphasised the need for new hardware components for current measurements.
Commercially available Hall effect current sensors, typically silicon based, have not kept up with the high speed and sensitivity requirements of the GaN and SiC technologies.
The successful candidate will simulate, optimize, fabricate and characterize a new generation of Hall-effect sensors, based on GaN technology, offering increased sensitivity and bandwidth at elevated temperatures.
We seek candidates with an excellent academic record in physics, electronics or similar subject. Specific experimental skills are not required, but self-motivation and a can-do attitude are.
