TESLA Innovative Training Network (ITN), a consortium of 8 academic universities and 11 industrial partners, with an awarded budget 4 million Euro, will recruit 15 ESR fellows and create a vibrant, multidisciplinary training-through-research environment uniquely equipped to develop the Advanced Technologies for future European Satellite Applications in 15 PhD projects. This is one of them, which will be developed in the Microwave Applications Group (GAM) of the Institute on Telecommunications and Multimedia Applications (iTEAM) located in the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV). The GAM focuses its research activities on the development of techniques for analysis and design of passive components implemented in different technologies: coaxial, waveguide, planar and hybrid ones (such as substrate integrated waveguides, SIWs, and alternative realizations like empty and coaxial SIWs) and employing conductors, dielectrics, periodic structures (EBGs) and/or tuning elements (varactors and micro-electro-mechanical systems as MEMs).

Specifically, the ESR must perform the following functions:

  1. Investigate the potential use of planar and hybrid technologies (such as Substrate Integrated Waveguide) for implementing passive components (e.g. miniaturized filters and multiplexers).
  2. Development of novel concepts for miniaturized passive components (i.e. filters and multiplexers) with tuning capabilities.
  3. Practical employment of electronic components (e.g. varactors and MEMS) for the practical implementation of miniaturized tuneable and reconfigurable components (filters and multiplexers).

Required Research Experiences

    Engineering
  • YEARS OF RESEARCH EXPERIENCE
    1 - 4

Offer Requirements

  • REQUIRED EDUCATION LEVEL
    Engineering: Bachelor Degree or equivalent
  • REQUIRED LANGUAGES
    ENGLISH: Excellent

Specific Requirements

There are no restrictions on the nationality, but researchers must be early-stage researchers (ESR), i.e. at the time of recruitment, be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and have not been awarded a doctoral degree.

Researchers must comply with the mobility rule - Researchers may not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organization for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the reference date: the recruitment. Compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays are not taken into account.
