The School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering is a dynamic, research diverse, highly research active school in the UK. Its research is funded by research councils (home and EU) and industry. The school has a large number of undergraduate and postgraduate students and is well equipped for teaching and research. The Microwave and RF Research Lab in the school is long-established and internationally known for many original & seminal contributions of its members to the field.
Duties of the Role
This research work aims to realise a novel broadband mm-wave full-duplex radio system for applications in 5G/6G & LO satellite communications at mm-waves. This project is funded by the EPSRC and its primary objectives are research & development of suitable mm-wave antennas and mm-wave active & passive circuits necessary for the delivery of the radio system.
The successful candidate will be a member of the Microwave and RF Research Lab and will work towards achieving the aim & objectives of the project. The successful candidate will also possess good/effective verbal and written communication skills for ordering equipment/components, contributing to meetings, preparing reports/patents/ scientific papers, taking active role to liaise with industry and academia to further project applications and impact, and will be expected to travel for project meetings, partner interactions, and conference and workshop presentations. This is a joint research project with University of Westminster and hence there is a strong interaction and regular meetings among the two teams.
Skills and qualifications required
The sucessful candidate will ideally hold a relevant doctoral level degree in Microwave Techniques/Wireless Communications & Systems/Electronics or equivalent professional experience or practice or be close to completion of PhD. You will havev a strong background in theory, design/computer-simulation, clean-room/micro-milling machine/3D-printing fabrication and measurement of mm-wave antennas and active & passive circuits as well as in applied electromagnetics and RF/microwave wireless communication systems.
As part of the process and to be successful you will be required to demonstrate how you your research has been impactful within and beyond the academic sphere, recognising the importance of this and the effect it will have on the University.
The University of Essex is a campus based University and all academic appointments are made with the expectation that you will be present on campus to fulfil the requirements of your position.
