Applications are invited for a research position in the Department of Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering at the University of Birmingham, to undertake research in the area of design and microfabrication of millimetre-wave and Terahertz (THz) metamaterials / metasurfaces and antennas. This post is part of an EPSRC funded project addressing different aspects of antenna and metamaterial technologies, materials properties, fabrication procedures and systems integration.
The overall aim of this cutting edge project is to lay the fundamental scientific foundations and develop new metamaterials and antenna technologies for future communication and satellite systems from lower millimetre-wave to low THz bands (up to 1 THz). This will require undertaking theoretical and applied research, involving microfabrication, experimental studies, simulation and modelling. The research aims to determine suitable design and material technologies for developing mm-wave/THz devices in a range of operating bands within the mm-wave and low THz spectrum, based on cost effective fabrication processes, which will lead to prototype demonstrators and testing in representative satellite systems.
The Research Fellow will have the opportunity to work closely with another Research Fellow at Loughborough University, focusing on metamaterials characterisation and design. In addition, the post requires close liaison with prestigious industrial partners for integration of the research results and prototypes with existing state of the art antenna technologies.
The project will take place in the Communication and Sensing research group at the University of Birmingham, where the underlying science, the new technologies and the applications of metamaterials at RF/Microwave and low-THz bands are an increasingly important part of the research strategy, and is strongly backed by UK, EU and industrial funding. The involvement of major international companies further highlights the importance of the research and the potential impact that can be generated by cooperative work on fundamental research questions.
