Detalii loc de munca
Bell Labs' research facility in Dublin, Ireland is a leading end-to-end systems and solutions lab working in the areas of RF hardware, wireless sensor networks, thermal management, autonomic networking and semantic data access. We have an opening for an inspired innovator in our RF hardware research group, as an antenna and antenna systems researcher. A successful candidate will have strong experience of electromagnetic simulation and design, fabrication and evaluation of antennas and/or other passive structures. The position involves work in the context of innovative antennas and antenna systems for mobile communications applications such as active and passive base station antennas and MIMO antenna systems. The candidate should have experience working working in the frequency range below 6GHz, but should also be capable of pushing the boundaries of such system into the mmWave-range of 60GHz and even above. Main duties and responsibilities: • Carry out groundbreaking research into technologies and solutions for active and passive antennas and/or other related RF structures and systems whilst ensuring strong linkage to real world applications. • Partner with business units to ensure the successful exploitation of research outputs. • Contribute to the technical definition of research programs, project objectives and work plans. • Propose and publish research for the major research publications worldwide. • Create and maintain strong collaborative associations with university-based researchers, other leading research bodies, product business units and government agencies.
Likely qualifications, knowledge, and experience: • A PhD in any electronic-engineering related domain. • Inspired innovator able to prove concepts with real prototypes. • Ability to conduct independent research while also contributing to team-oriented projects. A successful candidate will be versatile, flexible, hands-on, and a self-starter. • Experience in electromagnetic simulation and RF circuit design is required. • Experience in one or more of the following areas: -Antenna/antenna array design for mobile-, satellite- and/or radar- applications. -Prototyping and evaluation of antennas and antenna-systems. -General knowledge of cellular and related networks. • Experience in the area of mmWave backhaul, satellite communications or radar applications is highly appreciated but not mandatory. • Additionally candidates must have: -Strong written and spoken communications skills. -A proven track record in a research arena or strong industrial experience.
