Electromagnetic shielding is critical to ensure the safe operation of modern electronic systems and to prevent them interfering with radio communications. This is particularly so in the area of mobility as more autonomous systems must operate safely despite a congested electromagnetic environment. As part of the EU funded PARASOL project working on sustainable solutions for electromagnetic shielding in mobility applications, the aim of this project is to develop better shielding metrics that allow real-world performance of electromagnetic shields to be predicted by designers. The project will interact with material designers, Aerospace, and Automotive, Marine and Rail companies and include several placement periods with other project partners.
EU mobility rules require that candidates must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the UK for more than 12 months in the 36 months immediately before their recruitment date. Candidates must have (or expect to obtain) a minimum of a UK upper second-class honours degree (2.1) in an Engineering discipline, Materials Science, Physical Sciences, Mathematics or Equivalent; a Masters degree is desirable; Knowledge of electromagnetics, data processing and analysis in Matlab, Python or similar are essential; Knowledge of RF measurements, and simulation are desirable.
Start date : From March 2023-October 2023. This post is fully funded for 36 months by UKRI.
How to apply:
Applicants must submit applications via the PARASOL project web site in the first instance stating DR9 as a preference.
