Open PhD and PDF positions at iRadio Lab, University of Calgary in the area of GaN MMIC power amplifiers design
iRadio Lab is currently recruiting highly qualified and motivated PhD students and postdoctoral fellows with strong background in microwave and millimetre waves MMIC active circuit design to start working as soon as possible. Successful applicants with awarded scholarships or fellowships will be offered a complement to their scholarship or fellowship.
Desired skills include:
CAD tools (ADS, CST, HFSS, Matlab)
Instrumentation (on-wafer measurement, load-pull)
Experience in power amplifier design
Experience in MMIC design
Thermal analysis and design
Packaging and circuit design technologies (LTCC, HTCC, MHMIC)
The successful candidates will be working on designing high performance advanced topologies power amplifier systems for 5G wireless communications and next generations of satellite/space communications applications in the frequency bands (C-, X-, K- and Ka-). They will work in state-of-the-art lab facility in collaboration with a team of experienced graduate students and researchers. They will also interact with industrial collaborators for their project (Canadian Space Agency, Ericsson Canada, National Research Council, or Nanowave Technologies) with a possibilities to have internships with one of these industrial sponsors.
Potential candidate can submit electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org their applications including a full resume highlighting the relevant experience and skills and including a list of publications.
