Excellence in academia through gender equality

At LTH, we believe heterogeneous groups contribute to create more creative environments - an important element when we together explore and create to benefit the world.

We aim to be an attractive employer for candidates whose gender is underrepresented and we work hard to achieve equality at the Faculty of Engineering, Lund University. With this end in view, we are now making a long-term commitment to inspire more women to engage in male dominated research areas, and vice versa.

We offer to all of our new and recently employed associate senior lecturers an appealing career program - LTH Career Academy - that will support the participants in their career path within academia and strengthen their teaching and leadership skills.

The research group in Electromagnetic Theory at the Department of Electrical and Information Technology is active in research and teaching on electromagnetic phenomena and applications. In addition to a solid national and international academic base, the group has extensive industry co-operation with several adjunct professors working in the group. Teaching covers mainly electromagnetic field theory, circuit theory, basic electronics, antenna technology, radar systems, microwave technology and particle dynamics. Two major research centers based on particle accelerators are located in Lund, MAX IV and ESS, and cooperation with these regarding microwave technology for accelerators is of particular interest to this employment.

Subject description

Electromagnetic Theory forms the basis of electrical engineering and optics, giving the macroscopic description of the interaction between electromagnetic fields and material structures. The solution of Maxwell’s equations using advanced mathematical methods is central to this. The subject aims at a deep understanding of basic electromagnetic phenomena to enable good engineering practice. To achieve this goal, both theoretical, numerical and experimental methods are relevant. Examples of important applications are antennas, communication and radar systems, design of materials with specific electromagnetic properties, inverse diffusion and non-destructive testing, as well as microwave technology for particle accelerators.
