Postdoctoral Position in Antenna Design and RF/mm-Wave Circuit Integration

Opening for: Postdoc

Status details

Announced:13 Sep 2021


We, the Microwave Sensing, Signals and Systems (MS3) Section at TU Delft, are an inter-disciplinary and multi-national team of researchers from academia and industry, in which antenna, signal processing, and circuit design experts collaborate to create novel wireless system solutions for the emerging communication and sensing applications.

We have built our expertise on years of research and development in the area of active phased arrays, in strong collaboration with the external partners (e.g. NXP, TNO, Thales, ESA). We are one of the leading research teams in Europe in the development of the next-generation integrated antenna array technology. We aim for the design of highly integrated arrays for efficient and cost-effective antenna and front-end solutions.

We are now looking for a postdoctoral candidate to join our team who will be involved in the ongoing antenna design-oriented research projects in collaboration with our industrial partners.

Job description

In MS3, you will take a leading role in the design and realization of novel active antenna array concepts, by including integrated beamformer circuit/chip components. You are also expected to take part in the development of the complementary over-the-air measurements and experiments. You will collaborate closely with the antenna researchers and technicians in MS3. You will be a key member of a motivated team developing efficient, low-cost, yet high-performance antenna technologies for future space, cellular, and radar systems.

Most of your time will be available for conducting the research. Additional tasks will include supervision of Ph.D. and MSc students involved in the antenna design-related projects. Some support in teaching as an assistant is also required. You are responsible for reporting and presenting your research output at the regular project meetings. In addition, you are expected to publish your new research results in highly-ranked scientific journals and international conferences.

The position provides full-time temporary employment for two years.


The applicant should have a PhD degree in electrical engineering or physics with strong background, design expertise and publication record in the fields of antennas, electronics and microwave circuits. Experience in working with EM simulation tools (e.g. CST Studio Suite) is required.

Strong communication skills for interaction with the other members of the team are expected. The researcher should have an open personality and good English language skills in order to closely cooperate with colleagues and students as well as to write project documents. Self-motivation, independency in research, creativity and problem-solving ability are the personal skills we are looking for. European (EU) nationality is an advantage.
