Applications are invited for fully funded 4-year PhD positions. The start date will be in January, May, or September.

The PhD positions generally involve theoretical and applied research in electromagnetics and wireless communications. The research projects cover a broad range of topics, with a particular focus on the development of high-performance computational platforms for emerging wireless technologies in intelligent transportation (air, ground, underground), 5G and beyond wireless communications, underwater communications, indoor/outdoor localisation, as well as biomedical sensing and healthcare applications.

The successful candidates are expected to conduct research, particularly, but not exclusively in the following projects:

(1) Physics-based wireless channel models for large-scale environments (indoor, outdoor, underground/underwater) and their application for the intelligent planning of wireless communication systems.

(2) Numerical modelling and analysis of multiphysics/multiscale problems in computational electromagnetics.

(3) Machine learning and its application in electromagnetics and wireless communications.

(4) RF/microwave/millimeter-wave design & measurement.

Specific research topic for the PhD position will depend on the candidate’s background. The PhD candidate will have a chance to work with industry partners and international collaborators.

Offer Requirements

Skills/Qualifications
The successful candidate should hold a Bachelor or Master degree in electrical/electronic engineering, computer science, applied mathematics/physics or a related discipline, and should have a solid background in mathematics, electromagnetic and communication theory, as well as programming. Previous related research experience will be a plus.

Specific Requirements
Interested candidates should send an email to Dr. Xingqi Zhang (xingqi.zhang@ucd.ie) along with your CV, academic transcripts, English qualifications, as well as any other documents that you believe can well demonstrate your research capability and potential.
