In this position you will be part of forming the future generations wireless
communication and sensing systems. You will investigate application-driven
challenges in high-power multi-antenna transmitters. Your work will be
dedicated to the design, modeling, and experimental implementation of these
systems -challenges that incorporate research in Microwave Engineering, Active
Semiconductor Devices, Electromagnetism, Antenna design, Thermal transport,
and Mechanical engineering. You will iteratively work with multi-physical
simulations and experimental implementations to solve thermal limitations and
associated design constraints.
Information about the division and the research
The position is hosted by the Microwave Electronics Laboratory at the
Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience (MC2) in close collaboration
with the Antenna systems laboratory at the Department of Electrical
Engineering (E2) and industry partners.
In this position you will also get the chance to spend quite some time on
experiments in Chalmers open infrastructure for microwave and Terahertz
technology, the Kollberg Laboratory, which is one of Europe's most well-
equipped measurement infrastructures in the field.
Your major responsibilities as postdoc at Chalmers are to pursue your own
research in line with the project goals. You are expected to develop your own
scientific concepts and communicate the results of your research verbally and
in writing. It is an outspoken goal that yours and the research project
results are published in Scientific journals and conferences.
Beside research, involving experimental and theoretical work, as described
above, you are also encouraged to be involved in education and supervision of
undergraduate and graduate students.
To qualify for the position as postdoc you must have a doctoral degree in
Electrical Engineering, Engineering Physics, Mechanical Engineering, or
similar; the degree should generally not be older than three years. Experience
of high-frequency electronics measurements, multiphysical simulations,
mechanical engineering and thermal design are all meritorious qualifications.
Furthermore, it will be valuable if you can take on some responsibility, take
own initiative, and work independently when needed. At the same time, it is
important that you are a good team player. This is especially vital since the
current project will interact closely with adjacent disciplines and with
industrial partners. A high level of written and spoken English is required
This postdoc position is a full-time temporary employment for two years,
with possible extension for one more year.
We offer Chalmers offers a cultivating and inspiring working environment in the
coastal city of Gothenburg.
