Reconfigurable antennas for millimetre wave communications

This Earmarked Scholarship project is aligned with a recently awarded Category 1 research grant. It offers you the opportunity to work with leading researchers and contribute to large projects of national significance.

Supervisor – Professor Amin Abbosha.abbosh@uq.edu.au

Design reconfigurable antennas at mm-wave with high efficiency. The student is required to have good background in antennas and microwave engineering, in general. The student will need to utilize varieties of design methods, such as tunable materials, meta-materials, leaky wave structures, electronically tuned phase shifters, to improve the efficiency of reconfigurable antenna in mm-wave regime.

Preferred educational background

Applications will be judged on a competitive basis taking into account the applicant's previous academic record, publication record, honours and awards, and employment history.

A working knowledge of antennas and microwave devices would be of benefit to someone working on this project.

The applicant will demonstrate academic achievement in the field(s) of microwave or applied electromagnetic engineering and the potential for scholastic success.

A background or knowledge of phased arrays is highly desirable.

*The successful candidate cannot commence until Research Quarter 4, 2021. You should apply at least 3 months prior to the research quarter commencement date. International applicants may need to apply much earlier for visa reasons.
