Project Description

Space is key asset for Europe. Europe’s citizens enjoy the benefits, from jobs and economic growth, to public services, efficient communications and security. To respond to global challenges, Europe must continue to have a prominent role in space at a time when other world powers are rapidly developing their space capabilities. Since satellite payload RF components and systems are essential for delivering mission objectives and supporting ground equipment and telecommunication systems, new technologies and techniques are required to respond to emerging satellite applications and technology challenges.

This position is part of a large Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network - TESLA (https://cordis.europa.eu/project/rcn/217924_en.html) consisting of 8 academic and 11 industrial nodes in 8 European countries (UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria, Sweden & Finland). It will create a vibrant, multidisciplinary training-through-research environment uniquely equipped to develop the Advanced Technologies for future European Satellite Applications. The TESLA ITN will hire 15 Early Stage Researchers, who will pursue PhD in collaborating with senior staff in academic and industrial sectors to conduct top-notch research into new and enabling technologies for satellite flexible payloads, big constellation systems and Internet of Space, satellite high-speed communications and remote sensing, as well as large satellite platforms.

The main objective of this PhD project is to develop Highly integrated compact lightweight switch matrix technology (contact the supervisor for details)

The appointment is full time (100% FTE) for 36 months with an expected start day of 1st July, 2019 or as mutually agreed upon by both parties.

Essential Criteria and Important eligibility rules for candidates:
• Applicants should have a good undergraduate degree or a postgraduate Master’s degree (or equivalent) in electronic or electrical engineering or a physical sciences subject as well as highly proficient English language skills.
