Project Description

Microwave systems are becoming more mainstream with wearable applications needing to work at higher frequencies. There is a requirement for circuits and devices that can perform at these frequencies in a cost-effective manner. Investigating this problem will mean looking at new production techniques and new interconnection methods based around textiles, meta-materials and similar concepts.
Major areas requiring research are textile/flexible connectors, size reduction of flexible/textile circuit components and isolation of components form the human body to ensure human safety s well as correct circuit operation.

A successful applicant will have the ability to grasp the electromagnetic implications of novel technologies at microwave frequencies as well as a firm understanding of the application areas unfolding as technology advances. (S)he will be joining a team of established researchers supervising a number of PhD students in the microwaves, antennas and wearable systems area.

Entry requirements

Applicants should have, or expect to achieve, at least a 2:1 Honours degree (or equivalent) in Electronics or a closely related subject.

A relevant Master’s degree and/or experience in one or more of the following will be an advantage: Electronics or wireless communications engineering with an emphasis on propagation and microwave engineering.

How to apply

All applications should be made online. Under programme name select Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering. Please quote reference number: RSUF2018
