Postdoc/Research Fellow for Developing Future Intelligent Communication Systems

Postdoc/Research Fellow for Developing Future Intelligent Communication Systems

Aalto University - School of Electrical Engineering

Helsinki, Finland

Job description

Cellular wireless industry has already started pursuing candidate technologies for beyond-5G cellular wireless systems. One of such technologies is effective use of even higher radio frequency spectrum than presently the 5G plans to use, in particular, above 100 GHz. It is necessary to study possibilities of link connectivity in outdoor cellular scenarios at such high frequencies through development of innovative radio frequency solutions and improved understanding of radio wave propagation. Within a new HORIZON 2020 European project we plan to exploit the opportunities emerging for advanced connectivity based on metasurfaces where objects in the environment can become tuneable reflectors for shaping the propagation environment in D-band.

The postdoc/research fellow will work on:

  • Developing physical-optics models of reflection and scattering from finite-size metasurface reflectors (anomalously reflecting or focusing) and incorporating them into propagation channel models. This work will represent a paradigm shift in channel modelling, when even the environment can be potentially changed with metasurfaces.
  • Designing, manufacturing, and characterization of metasurface concept solutions for D-band frequencies that transform pico-cell networks into adaptive, reconfigurable, sensing environments.
  • Organizing work of the project consortium partners on the topics related to the use of metasurfaces for modification and optimization of propagation channels.

The work on these topics will be supported by the European Union Horizon 2020 project. In our dynamic and open research environment, the post-doctoral fellow will have an opportunity to participate in other projects or bring his/her own research ideas.

Requirements for the postdoc/research fellow position

  • PhD degree in electrical engineering or physics and good oral and written command of English;
  • Solid knowledge of electromagnetics, with the emphasis on electromagnetic phenomena in complex materials (metamaterials and metasurfaces) and the theory of diffraction.

It is advantageous if the applicant has the following knowledge and skills:

  • Experience in design and experimental investigations of metasurfaces for shaping reflected fields. Knowledge of electromagnetic simulations software. Basic skills in micro- and nanofabrication. Experience in project management work.
