We are looking to recruit a Research Assistant/Associate to contribute to/make a leading contribution to the development of sustainable and biodegradable electronics, enabled by body-worn circuits, antennas, and systems for wireless communication and sensing. As part of an international collaborative project, you will be able to work with leading research groups in RFID and microwave sensors.
Working closely with the PI (Dr Mahmoud Wagih), you will get the opportunity to formulate and publish your findings in impactful research publications, generate intellectual property (IP) from the research findings, help manage and direct this project, and work closely with our international partners.
You will benefit from and use the state-of-the-art RF and mmWave facilities at the University of Glasgow, as well as be part of an inter-disciplinary team ranging from material scientists to software engineers. There is also an opportunity to contribute to the co-supervision of other members of the research team, and to support the development of research proposals to establish independence.
You will need a strong background in antenna design and RF systems; software development skills and flexible/wearable antenna fabrication experience will be highly valuable. There will be opportunities to develop these skills further and use new cutting-edge mmWave tools.
To be considered for an appointment at Grade 7, you must be able to perform the duties as listed for a Research Assistant position with a higher degree of independence, leadership and responsibility, particularly in relation to planning, funding, collaborating and publishing research, and mentoring colleagues. You must also have a Scottish Credit and Qualification Framework level 12 (PhD) or alternatively possess the equivalent in professional qualifications and experience, with experience of personal development in a similar or related role(s)
Informal enquiries about the role are welcomed, and should be addressed to Dr Mahoud Wagih (Mahmoud.Wagih@glasgow.ac.uk)
