PhD Student in Next Generation mm-Wave Sensing
Your future responsibilities
- Focus a: MIMO Transceiver for Integrated Sub-THz Sensor Systems: Building Blocks and Integrated Circuits for MIMO Transceivers above 100 GHz.
- Focus b: Next Generation/Alternative mmW-Sensing and -Imaging Concepts: Alternative and situation aware modulation schemes as well as imaging concepts, realizations, and algorithms.
- Research will be focused on building blocks for sub-THz-sensing applications at 120, 230, 330 and 480 GHz, respectively, focused on RX-TX separation at highest frequencies as well as array optimization under the given constraints
- The candidate will innovate in either core functional blocks, the full sensor system, array concepts together with researchers in the SAL mm-wave laboratory
Your profileTechnical skills:
- Good background in RF-design and mmW-sensor evaluation and depending on work either strong background in integrated circuit design for integrated design-focused work or strong background in RF-system concepts and mathematics/simulation tools for conceptual work
- Candidate must be self-contained and motivated to explore new topics, and at the same time team player for the realization of complex systems together with others
- Proficiency in English required, German language skills not required but welcome
- Highly motivated
- Well organized
- High energy level
- Strong analytical skills required
- Sufficient background in electrical engineering or physics a prerequisite for all candidates
- Beginning of the employment: September 2020
- This position is endowed with a gross annual salary of € 40.978 based on the collective agreement for research („Forschungs-Kollektivvertrag“) and depending on your experience and skills.
