The Power Electronics and Electromagnetic Compatibility Group within the department Electrical Engineering has a vacancy for a PhD researcher to work in the EU Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Project PARASOL - European Doctoral Network for Safe and Sustainable ElectroMagnetic Shielding Solutions for Mobility.
PARASOL is a European funded Marie Sklodowska-Curie project, with partners from the Netherlands, Belgium, United Kingdom, Czech Republic, Poland and Spain. Each of the 12 Doctoral Researchers (DRs) will be trained to work in multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural teams, with a new mindset tuned towards the inclusion of the Safe-and-Sustainable-by-Design (SSbD) approach into innovative design methods. For this inclusion to occur, each DR will develop through their research the missing dedicated tools and techniques, and apply them to the complete lifecycle of electromagnetic shielding solutions for vehicles (car, plane, train and ship). This hands-on training is supplemented with several scientific professional courses and an immersive training where the DRs can fine-tune their skills for the Jobs of tomorrow, while addressing the societal challenges of the PARASOL program.
The Project: Trade-off SE solutions for enclosures
Objectives: This task is about addressing the fundamental concept of shielding achieved by reflection and/or absorption. The corresponding trade-offs regard the material properties, design, and implementation, as well as performance evaluation methods, also in their designated applications, with a strong focus on reverberant enclosures such as airplanes and cars. These reverberant enclosures can generate hot sports of (much) higher field strength rendering reflective SE measures much less effective than absorption. However, the currently available absorbing materials have disputable stable performance, and the materials are used in a trial-and-error process, based on measurement techniques which have been developed, but not (yet) standardised. The DR will focus on the selection of materials (e.g., carbon-fibre filled plastics, ferrite, sprayed-cold composite, or metal, also as a frequency selective surface (FSS)), trade-offs (considering e.g., weight, volume, shape, frequency range and selectivity), implementation type (e.g., coating, paint, gasket/rivet/screw, FSS mesh), design fit and integration in the designated application, as well as cost/performance trade-offs. Although this task looks interesting for material research, it is focused on electromagnetics in the microwave range 1-100 GHz.

About the organisation
The faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) uses mathematics, electronics and computer technology to contribute to the development of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). With ICT present in almost every device and product we use nowadays, we embrace our role as contributors to a broad range of societal activities and as pioneers of tomorrow's digital society. As part of a people-first tech university that aims to shape society, individuals and connections, our faculty works together intensively with industrial partners and researchers in the Netherlands and abroad, and conducts extensive research for external commissioning parties and funders. Our research has a high profile both in the Netherlands and internationally. It has been accommodated in three multidisciplinary UT research institutes: Mesa+ Institute, TechMed Centre and Digital Society Institute.
