Postdoctoral and Ph.D. Positions in Antenna and Microwave Design Automation (# of pos: 3)

Updated: 30 days ago
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 30 Apr 2021

Applications are invited for multiple Postdoctoral and Ph.D. student positions in the area of computer-aided design of high-frequency structures in the Department of Engineering, Reykjavik University, Iceland.


The positions will involve carrying out research in the area of design automation, with the emphasis on surrogate-based modeling and optimization, with the primary application area in high-frequency electronics (antennas, RF/microwave, photonics). The research includes development and implementation of numerical modeling procedures, optimization algorithms (single- and multi-objective design, uncertainty quantification, global optimization), performing numerical experiments involving electromagnetic/circuit simulators, as well as development of the relevant software.


Postdoc positions (high-frequency design):

  • PhD in Electrical Engineering or related fields.

  • Design experience in the area of antenna and/or microwave engineering as well as experience with CST Microwave Studio are essential.

  • Working knowledge of other simulation/design environments (Sonnet em, Keysight ADS/Momentum, HFSS) is a plus.

  • Matlab programming skills, as well as working knowledge of numerical analysis and optimization techniques will be considered an asset.

Postdoc positions (modeling/optimization):

  • PhD in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Applied Mathematics or related fields

  • Background and working knowledge of numerical modeling and optimization techniques as well as fluency in Matlab programming are essential.

  • Specialization in a particular field (e.g., uncertainty quantification, surrogate modeling, global optimization, machine learning) is a plus.

  • Working knowledge of high-frequency design will be considered an asset.

Ph.D. positions:

  • MSc degree in Electrical Engineering or Computer Science.

  • Fluency in Matlab programming is a must.

  • Background and experience in one of the following fields will be considered an asset: antenna/microwave design, numerical optimization methods, machine learning.

Applications should be submitted through the University's online applications website and should include the following documents:

  • Curriculum vitae

  • A list of publications.

  • A list of three references

  • Copies of relevant certificates and diplomas.

  • Any other relevant information the applicant wishes to supply.

Review of applications begins immediately and continues until the positions have been filled.
