EISLAB at the Department of Computer Science, Space and Electrical Engineering at Luleå University of Technology is taking part in the design of the EISCAT_3D radar. The system will consist of several large phased-array antenna transmit/receive sites located in northern Norway, Finland and Sweden, each comprising tens of thousands individual antenna elements. When it has been built, EISCAT_3D will be capable of making measurements from the upper stratosphere to the magnetosphere and beyond, contributing to basic, environmental and applied science that underpins the use of space by contemporary society.
EISLAB is looking for PostDoc or Research engineer in Antenna and Antenna Array Design.
The aim of the work is to evaluate and design antenna elements and antenna arrays suitable for the harsh conditions in northern Scandinavia. The antenna elements, the array layout, and the associated calibration systems will all need to be studied. The results will be used to design the antenna arrays for the EISCAT_3D radar. In order to achieve a robust and mass producible design, the work will need to be carried out in collaboration with suitable manufacturers. The project is collaboration between several parties, which means that travel and interaction will be a part of the work. The position is a project employment; the position is time limited to two years.
We welcome applications from engineers with extensive experience in antenna design, as well as applications from researchers in the field. Prior knowledge and experience in electromagnetic simulations, antenna design, and antenna measurements is required. Previous experience from work on antenna arrays and signal processing is valuable. The applicant must be able to communicate well in English.
