We offer a position as an
in the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network Project MenelaosNT in the field
Compressive sensing and imaging using Ultrasound or THz.
Ultrasonic and Terahertz (2D/3D) imaging is a promising subsurface sensing and imaging methodology with applications in medicine, non-invasive, non-destructing inspection including chemical substance characterization exploiting wavelength dependent signatures of different materials. In this project we aim to exploit the expertise in our network on compressive sensing and ltrasonic/Terahertz sensing hardware design to develop innovative new sensing and imaging methodologies.
The successful candidate will be employed for a maximum period of three years full-time equivalent and receives a generous financial package plus an additional mobility and family allowance according to the rules for Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) in an EU Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Networks (ITN). A career development plan will be prepared for each fellow in accordance with his/her supervisor and will include training, planned secondments and outreach activities in partner institutions of the network. The ESR fellows are supposed to complete their PhD thesis by the end of the 3rd year of their employment. For more information please visit the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Networks website.
The Public University of Navarra (UPNA), an International Campus of Excellence, is a young academic institution that heads the list of Spanish universities in terms of teaching quality and capacity to attract new students.
Within UPNA’s Institute of Smart Cities, the Antenna Group is a research group that has been actively working on different areas of applied electromagnetics, including THz imaging, for more than 20 years. Their expertise covers from basic research in metamaterials and antenna theory to development of different THz subsystem: antennas, components, receivers. In the field of THz imaging their activity has been oriented towards industrial applications of mmw and THz technology.
The position will be located at
31006 Pamplona, Spain
Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Íñigo Ederra
Planned Recruitment date: 1st September 2021.
ESRs must, at the date of recruitment, be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and have not been awarded a doctoral degree. Full-Time Equivalent Research Experience is measured from the date when the researcher obtained the first degree entitling him/her to embark on a doctorate (either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the researcher is recruited), even if a doctorate was never started or envisaged. Researchers can be of any nationality.
ESRs must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the recruiting beneficiary for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the planned recruitment date. Compulsory national service, short stays such as holidays, and time spent as part of a procedure for obtaining refugee status under the Geneva Convention are not taken into account.
