We are recruiting...

July 18, 2016

We are currently advertising for three PhD students. If you want to work at the forefront of engineering in a project that has the potential to transform electronics then take a look at our opportunities. All the studentships can be found on www.jobs.ac.uk and www.findaphd.com. Applications should be made via the online application form listed on the sites above. Informal enquiries can be directed to Dr Darren Cadman

 

Studentship 1: Processing materials for 3D printing of metamaterials: SYMETA (Synthesizing 3D Metamaterials for RF, microwave and THz applications (deadline 31st July)

 

This opportunity, combining Metamaterials and AM will involve you with enabling state-of-the-art materials processing and future communications technologies. You will use existing materials synthesis, characterisation and processing methodologies whilst developing and assessing bespoke printing and processing techniques to fabricate multi-component ceramic/metal/polymer-based metamaterials. You will work with materials that have never been printed before producing unprecedented structures across length scales from centimetres to micrometres. Our project partners will design novel communications devices that will be realised by you using novel material formulations and AM. 

 

Studentship 2: Circuit modelling for design of metamaterial based microwave circuits: SYMETA project (Synthesizing 3D Metamaterials for RF, microwave and THz applications) (deadline 30th July)

 

This opportunity, combining Metamaterials and AM will involve you with enabling state-of-the-art materials processing and future communications technologies. You will investigate the circuit modelling of AM metamaterials in high frequency circuitry such as beam steering antennas, filters, diplexers and couplers. Metamaterials are designed and manufactured to have electromagnetic properties not normally found in naturally occurring materials. At the project’s centre is the creation of novel structures for high frequency electronic circuitry challenging conventional design and manufacture paradigms. Working with colleagues in test and measurement, physics, materials and manufacturing, you will support the development of a suite of circuit models to be deployed in the design of microwave circuits. 

 

Studentship 3: Metamaterial characterisation for microwave circuits: SYMETA (Synthesizing 3D Metamaterials for RF, microwave and THz applications) (deadline 30th July)

 

This opportunity, combining Metamaterials and AM will involve you with enabling state-of-the-art materials processing and future communications technologies. Working alongside colleagues in electronics circuit modelling, materials and manufacturing, you will investigate applying AM metamaterials to produce integrated high frequency circuits such as beam steering antennas, lens, filters, and couplers. 
Metamaterials are created to have electromagnetic properties that are not normally found in natural materials. At the project’s centre is the creation of metamaterial based structures for high frequency electronic circuitry challenging the conventional design and manufacturing paradigms. You will be practical and able to test and understand the performance of the metamaterial electronics, while studying how electromagnetic performance relates to and varies with manufacturing processes and constituent materials. You will gain experience in microwave test and measurement techniques, while developing an understanding of materials science and manufacturing technologies.
