Funded PhD studentships available at AHFR

Two funded PhD studentships are available at the Dublin Institute of Technology's Antenna & High Frequency Research Centre as part of the [external]Telecommunications Graduate Initiative (TGI).

Student fees are covered by the scholarship for EU students only.

The proposed research themes build upon the team's expertise in the following areas.

  • Antennas for on-body/biomedical applications
  • Integration of antennas and solar cells

The principle tasks will include the electro-magnetic modelling of antenna structures and environment (on-body/solar cell), prototype manufacture and measurements to validate designs. The facilities are all located in the DIT but collaboration with a European University is envisaged. Interested candidates should hold a first or upper second class honours degree in Electronic Engineering or related discipline. Applicants who hold research masters in the area are welcome. Experience with antenna simulation tools would be advantageous.

Applicants should email a detailed CV to Dr Max Ammann at
