PhD Scholarship Rf/microwave/thz Microsystems/mems for >200 Ghz Car Radar

Outstanding international students are invited to apply for a PhD scholarship at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. This position is available for two years. The deadline for applying is January 31, 2019.

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe's leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden's largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

The research group of RF/microwave/THz MEMS is a part of the Department of Micro and Nano Systems at KTH consisting of more than 50 researchers anddoctoralstudents. Research in RF/microwave/THz MEMS is carried out for applications including telecommunication, radar, medical diagnosis and space instruments, at frequencies from 75 to 750 GHz. The research output of the RF/microwave/THz MEMS group is well recognized internationally, and its doctoral students have received a total of six IEEE Best Paper Awards and four IEEE Graduate Fellowships in recent years. National and international partners in ongoing research collaborations include, for instance, Ericsson (SE), Infineon (DE), Chalmers (SE), CSEM (CH), NASA-JPL (USA), Tokyo Institute of Technology (JP).

The specific research project is on developing novel radar sensors enabled by micromachined sub-THz systems, more specifically a new high-resolution short-range car radar sensor technology operating at 200-300 GHz frequencies. The project is a collaboration project with the major partners Veoneer/Autoliv, Chalmers, Ericsson and Infineon. As a doctoral student you will work in an interdisciplinary research team, you will develop your own millimeter-wave/THz microsystem concepts, you will model and simulate them in state-of-the-art microwave and microsystem design tools, you will fabricate them in the KTH clean-room environment, and you will characterize them in our THz laboratory with existing measurement setups or with setups you still have to develop. You are expected to present your research results at international conferences and to write journal publications for highly ranked microwave, microsystem, and application-oriented scientific journals.

Project funding is provided by the European Commission viathe H2020 collaboration project "Car2TERA", grant agreement 824962 (ICT-07-2018, Electronic Smart Systems).

In order to succeed as an doctoral student at KTH you need to be goal oriented and persevering in your work.

A specialization in RF/microwave/THz engineering and/or microsystem technology is an necessary asset. Knowledge of microwave and microsystem design tools, and RF/microwave measurement technology is of advantage.

Only those who are or have been admitted to third-cycle studies may be employed as a doctoral student. The term of the initial contract may not exceed one year and may thereafter be extended. Doctoral students may engage in teaching, research, and administration corresponding to a maximum of 20 % of a full-time position.

Apply for the position and admission through KTH’s recruitment system. It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure that the application is complete in accordance with the instructions in the advertisement.

Applications must be received at the last closing date at midnight, CET/CEST (Central European Time/entral European Summer Time).
