Job description

In future wireless communication systems, centimeter-/millimeter-wave (cm-/mm-wave) antenna arrays especially large-scale arrays will be highly implemented with multi-functions for fitting flexible requirements. For the large-scale arrays such as phased arrays and massive MIMO arrays, the mutual coupling among antenna elements should be suppressed to a very low level to keep the system being stable. Otherwise, the active impedance matching would be significantly deteriorated. Besides, nonlinear effects caused by the strong coupling would lead to significant nonlinear distortions on power amplifiers and decrease the operation bandwidth of the systems. It is still a challenge to accommodate the issues.

Furthermore, facing the demand for miniaturization due to the limited physical space, highly integrations between large-scale antenna arrays and essential microwave components/parts to realize multi-functions attract growing attention, such as filtering, harmonic suppression as well as full-duplex communication. Aiming to these requirements, it is essential to combine antenna theory with microwave circuit/network theory to achieve the desired performance.

The successful candidate should have extensive knowledge in centimeter-wave and millimeter-wave antenna arrays for large-scale array systems as well as passive microwave components including power splitters and filters. Applicants with proven publication records are desirable, especially in high ranking IEEE Trans. journals. Further, a strong background in antennas, microwave components, numerical simulations, and experimental implementations is expected. Applicants for the Postdoctoral position should hold a relevant Doctoral Degree. A high level of written and spoken English is also expected.   

You may obtain further professional information from Professor Gert F. Pedersen, email: gfp@es.aau.dk

Qualification requirements: 

Appointment as Postdoc presupposes scientific qualifications at PhD–level or similar scientific qualifications. The research potential of each applicant will be emphasized in the overall assessment. Appointment as a Postdoc cannot exceed a period of four years in total at Aalborg University.

The application must contain the following:

  • A motivated text wherein the reasons for applying, qualifications in relation to the position, and intentions and visions for the position are stated.
  • A current curriculum vitae.
  • Copies of relevant diplomas (Master of Science and PhD). On request you could be asked for an official English translation.
  • Scientific qualifications. A complete list of publications must be attached with an indication of the works the applicant wishes to be considered. You may attach up to 5 publications.
  • Dissemination qualifications, including participation on committees or boards, participation in organisations and the like.
  • Additional qualifications in relation to the position. References/recommendations.
  • Personal data.

The applications are only to be submitted online by using the "Apply online" button below.

Shortlisting will be applied. This means that subsequent to the deadline for applications the head of department supported by the chair of the assessment committee will select candidates for assessment. All applicants will be informed whether they will be assessed or not.
