University of Kent is offering a Scholarship in Electronics Engineering to a PhD student. The Student will be based in the School of Engineering and Digital Arts and will work under the supervision of Prof John Bachelor and Prof Nathan Gomes alongside a funded EPSRC project.
The main roles of the PhD student will include:
- Design and testing of mmWave transducers using test bed development hardware,
- Demonstration of simultaneous multiple channel transmission in the 24GHz ISM band,
- Multiplexing of channels in an on-skin tag,
- Continually reviewing the literature, and striving to produce results leading to high quality research papers,
- Giving presentations to research groups and at conferences, writing technical reports and drafting papers for peer-reviewed journals.
The ideal candidate will ideally have a Masters degree in Electronic Communications or a related Engineering subject, though applicants with other Physical Science degrees will be considered. Open to UK/EU and Overseas applicants.
