Job Opportunities at WiSAR: Postdoctoral Research RF Engineering Roles

The WiSAR Lab is seeking to recruit two highly motivated Post-Doctoral Research Engineers to lead research and design work in the development 5G/6G RF and microwave devices, for deployment in Internet of Things (IoT), across sectors such as Manufacturing 4.0, Smart Cities, Health and Wellbeing, Agriculture, and Marine.


The WiSAR Lab is an innovative research centre and an Enterprise Ireland funded national Technology Gateway
focused on the research and development of emerging low power wireless technologies for deployment in many
industry sectors.

The Lab has recently acquired funding for an anechoic chamber which will add to an extensive suite of RF
and microwave test equipment, and the successful applicant shall be responsible for the operation of the chamber in the development of both academic and industry client research.

The organisation has a long history of academic and industrial research into low power wireless devices, antenna
design, and body area networks (BANs). The successful applicants will be expected build on this going forward by
developing research into emerging 5G and 6G networks and exploiting the opportunities that these higher
frequencies and bandwidths will provide. This will include innovative antenna design, and the use and exploitation
of metamaterials in achieving practical communications at 5G frequencies and beyond.

The successful candidates will join an exciting research effort and will work closely with other researchers to develop
and implement for industry innovative wireless solutions in emerging communication systems and will join an experienced and growing team who have been delivering innovative wireless solutions to industry for over 14 years.

The Post Doc Researchers will be expected to lead RF and microwave research by winning
funding opportunities and building a team of postgraduate student researchers.
