DP-2 Researcher: Reconfigurable Microwave RF Filters
Contract: Full Time/Fixed Term
The Advanced RF Technologies (ART) Group and the Microelectronics Circuits Centre Ireland (MCCI) at Tyndall National Institute (TNI) are currently advertising for the position of the Postdoctoral Researcher in Reconfigurable Microwave RF Filters for well-qualified and highly-motivated researchers with strong interest in filter synthesis techniques, filter tuning methods for planar and 3D filters, electromagnetic design of microwave components, tunable RF/microwave components and high-frequency integration and RF tuning methods.
The goal of this project is to develop new types of microwave RF filters with multiple levels of transfer function tunability (e.g, center frequency, bandwidth, transfer function type) alongside with tuning methods that facilitate autonomous reconfigurability within multiple octaves of the electromagnetic spectrum. The successful candidate will collaborate with industry and academia as part of an industry-led large-scale collaborative project and investigate the integration of these filters with other RF front-end components, high-frequency integration concepts using PCBs and off-the-self-components and advanced integration concepts using custom substrates and RF tuners.
This is an initial 12 months contract with scope for extension subject to performance and availability of funds.
The successful candidate will become a member of a diverse and vibrant community of academics, research professionals and students at TNI and UCC and will have access to world-class RF characterization, antenna measurement and manufacturing facilities at TNI, UCC and the Microelectronics Centre Circuits Ireland (MCCI).
