We are looking for a highly self-motivated individual to contribute to the Centre for Intelligent Antenna and Radio Systems (CIARS), at the University of Waterloo, as a Senior Researcher.
CIARS is a world class facility supporting research and development in electromagnetic communication and sensing technologies over a wide range of frequencies. It comprises an Electromagnetic Radiation Laboratory, an RF/Microwave/Millimeter Wave Laboratory, a THz Photonics Laboratory, a Multi-channel Radio Communication Systems Laboratory and a Rapid Prototyping Workshop. This multi-million dollar centre is a unique facility in Canada and one of very few such facilities in the world. CIARS activities cover research on novel integrated radio and antenna systems for intelligent radio networks, emerging millimetre wave and THz technologies, integrated radio-photonics, as well as fundamental issues related to new electromagnetic materials and radio-wave science.
We require an individual with a PhD in Electrical Engineering, specializing in electromagnetic fields, with at least 10 years of experience in state-of-the-art academically-based research for this position. The ideal candidate will have demonstrated expertise in the following areas:
- near/far field antenna measurement techniques with specialization in sub-millimeter wave and THz spherical/planar near field measurement systems, both in the frequency and time domain
- computational electromagnetics specifically integral equation-based methods applicable to the development of full wave EM imaging techniques, the design and optimization of complicated dielectric structures in the sub-millimeter wave and THz frequency bands, and bio-electromagnetics research initiatives
- Fourier Optics and its application to development of new super-resolution imaging algorithms, holographic imaging techniques and new technology
The successful candidate will be responsible for leading/supervising research project teams, conducting world-class research and technology development activities, undertaking independent and interdisciplinary R&D product-oriented research, and mentoring PhD students. The incumbent would also engage in intellectual property protection, patent and technical disclosure writing; and academic paper publication.
This position will remain open until an appropriate candidate has been found. The position is contingent upon funding; there is the possibility of contract extension beyond 2 years. The university respects, appreciates and encourages diversity. Applications from all qualified individuals are encouraged, however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
To be considered for this position, please send a curriculum vitae (CV) to Sarah Wallace, Project Manager.
