	Information about the research

The postdoctoral candidate will be involved in ongoing research projects in collaborations with our industrial partners (e.g. at Ericsson, Gapwaves, Bluetest), which aim at developing next generation integrated antenna array technology. The tight integration of electronics with radiating structures enables the development of efficient transmitter solutions for 5G, automotive, defense and security applications.

The objective is to minimize the complexity of impedance matching circuits, filters and power combining networks in-between the power amplifying circuits and the radiating structure. This will lead to a performance enhancement of RF transmitters in terms of efficiency, cost reduction, footprint size and output power.

The Postdoctoral candidate collaborates with the Antenna Group members within the Division of Communication and Antenna Systems and maintains interactions with the Microelectronics and Nanoscience (MC2) Department and other relevant academic and industrial parties when necessary. The post-doc will support the involved PhD students and is expected to publish new research results at both conferences and in scientific journals.

Major responsibilities

We are now looking for a postdoctoral candidate who can lead and fruitfully contribute to our research on power amplifier-antenna co-design for highly integrated wireless transmitter systems, at a senior level that is. You will collaborate closely with antenna researchers and perform fundamental research on novel active radiating structures by unifying efficient power amplifier concepts (e.g. Doherty, outphasing, etc) with multi-fed antenna elements utilizing direct impedance matching techniques. Your research is an enabler for improved energy efficiency, reduced size, and lower cost in emerging RF and mm-wave communication applications. You are expected to contribute or lead the development over-the-air measurement techniques for integrated active antenna systems.

You will be a key member of an inter-disciplinary team of academic and industrial researchers where circuit-, antenna, and signal processing experts collaborate to push the limits of new and emerging wireless systems for communication, radar, and medical sensing.

Most of the time will be available for the research, but some part will also include involve supervision of PhD and MSc thesis students within the research team. You will be responsible for reporting and presenting your research results at project meetings with industrial partners. Some involvement in teaching as assistant is expected but will not exceed 10% of the full time.

Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of two years (1+1).


To qualify, you should hold a PhD degree in the area of electrical engineering, microwave electronics, engineering physics, wireless communication engineering, or equivalent. Extensive experience within the antenna engineering field with a background in electronics, or an extensive circuit design experience with a background in antennas is required.

The successful candidate will have an outstanding academic track-record and have published first authored papers in internationally recognized peer-reviewed journals. Important qualities are enthusiasm, to be able to drive and conclude projects independently, take own initiatives and discuss/develop own ideas, be creative and have a problem-solving ability. Having the flexibility to elaborate on proposed research ideas that are deemed relevant in a collaborative working environment is another important qualification the successful candidate should have.

The project is in collaboration with other researchers and industry and thus excellent cooperation and social abilities are highly important. Good communication skills in English are required as English is the primary language in our laboratory. Chalmers offers Swedish courses if you are interested to learn.

Chalmers offers a cultivating and inspiring working environment in the dynamic city ofGothenburg.
