    Applicants for the Postdoctoral position should hold a relevant Doctoral Degree. A high level of written and spoken English is also expected


    • The successful candidate should have extensive knowledge in centimeter-wave and millimeter-wave antenna arrays for large-scale array systems as well as passive microwave components including power splitters and filters.
    • Applicants with proven publication records are desirable, especially in high ranking IEEE Trans. journals. Further, a strong background in antennas, microwave components, numerical simulations, and experimental implementations is expected

    Responsibilities/ Job Description

    In future wireless communication systems, centimeter-/millimeter-wave (cm-/mm-wave) antenna arrays especially large-scale arrays will be highly implemented with multi-functions for fitting flexible requirements. For the large-scale arrays such as phased arrays and massive MIMO arrays, the mutual coupling among antenna elements should be suppressed to a very low level to keep the system being stable. Otherwise, the active impedance matching would be significantly deteriorated. Besides, nonlinear effects caused by the strong coupling would lead to significant nonlinear distortions on power amplifiers and decrease the operation bandwidth of the systems. It is still a challenge to accommodate the issues.

    Furthermore, facing the demand for miniaturization due to the limited physical space, highly integrations between large-scale antenna arrays and essential microwave components/parts to realize multi-functions attract growing attention, such as filtering, harmonic suppression as well as full-duplex communication. Aiming to these requirements, it is essential to combine antenna theory with microwave circuit/network theory to achieve the desired performance.
