PhD Scholarship Position in Micromachined Antennas at Chalmers University of Technology

Applicants are invited to apply for a PhD scholarship in nanotechnology at Chalmers University of Technology. Successful candidate will have funding to work and study for five years in Sweden. Applicants should apply before October 27, 2018.

The Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience (MC2) focuses on research, innovation and education within the fields of future electronics, photonics, bio- and nanosystems. A close collaboration with Swedish and international partners within academy, industry and society enables scientific excellence and creates an innovative environment. In addition to the 200 researchers and Ph D students, MC2 houses a cleanroom for micro- and nanofabrication with state-of-the-art equipment.

Information about the division

In the Micro- and Nanosystems group of the Electronics Materials and Systems Laboratory we conduct research on the preparation of micro- and nanostructured materials in order to realise devices for a broad range of applications. We are currently engaged with energy harvesting and energy storage for intelligent wireless sensors exploiting nanofibrous materials based on carbon, and we also work with micromachined metamaterials for high frequency electronic systems.

Major responsibilities

Your major responsibilities are to pursue your own doctoral studies as a constructive contribution to projects undertaken by the Micro- and Nanosystems group. You are expected to develop your own scientific concepts and communicate the results of your research verbally and in writing. The appointment offers an opportunity to qualify for further research positions within academia or industry. Included in your work is also to some extent taking part in the supervision and teaching of students.

Full-time temporary employment.The position is limited to a maximum of five years.


To qualify as a PhD student, you must be a Master of Science in Engineering with a profile towards microsystems technology. You should have experience in antenna and structure simulation, design and realisation by micromachining. Experience of polymer RF-MEMS fabrication and meta-material based waveguide technology is highly appreciated. You need to be fluent in English and should be able to demonstrate excellent team-working skills as well as a high capacity to carry out advanced experimental work.

Chalmers offers a cultivating and inspiring working environment in the dynamic city ofGothenburg.
