- PhD–level or similar scientific qualifications
- You have an extensive knowledge in antenna design for phased arrays with dual-polarization and large scanning angle, as well as the ability of designing array decoupling structures and feeding networks
- Furthermore, a significant background in antennas, microwave components, numerical simulations, and experimental implementations is expected
- You should hold a relevant Doctoral Degree.
- Lastly, a high level of written and spoken English is expected.
It is an advantage if you have proven publication records, especially in high ranking IEEE Trans. journals.
Responsibilities/ Job Description
- Due to the rapid growth of wireless communication systems, a full coverage for all the frequency bands from 2G to 5G is required for future base stations (5G research)
- Especially in 5G, large-scale phased arrays need to be implemented for massive MIMO systems.
- The requirements of covering multiple frequency bands have brought many challenges to the antenna design.
- The main issue is integrating multiple antenna arrays into a limited space where each array must provide dual-polarization and large scanning angle.
- The low band antennas are required to be jointly miniaturized in size and profile. Moreover, the locations of antenna elements must take into account both the beam scanning range and the shadowing between antennas at different frequencies.
- Finally, the interferences between array elements introduce another level of complications due to the different operating frequencies, polarization, and relative locations.
- Therefore, in order to achieve the desired performances, it is essential to apply and combine several theoretical methods such as antenna design, mutual coupling reduction, and higher order mode suppression
